Niagara sophomore Julie DiMatteo was named ECAC Division 1 Pitcher Of The Week today, adding to her recent MAAC honor. Julie was 3-0 last week, including a no hitter vs. Rider. BTW, she won again today at Akron, raising her recored to 10-3. Julie joins the likes of Hofstra's Olivia Galati, Sara Plourde of UMass, Fordham's Jen Mineau, and Syracuse's Jenna Caira as 2010 honorees of the ECAC---some of the best pitchers in the Northeast.
I saw Julie pitch last Saturday, she is very intense in the circle. The Purple Eagles will be counting on her to back up their powerful offense in the MAAC Tournament.
