CBB: Vermeulen Named Summit League POW
April 18, 2011, 5:57 PM
BROOKINGS, SD - For the first time this season and sixth time in his career, South Dakota State University reliever Trever Vermeulen (pronounced ver-MILL-yen) has been honored as Summit League Pitcher of the Week.
A senior from Mitchell, Vermeulen increased his school-record saves total to 18 by recording three saves in the Jackrabbits' four-game sweep of Centenary (La.) this past weekend. The right-hander did not allow a run as he pitched at least 1 2/3 innings in each of his appearances. He struck out a combined seven batters, did not issue a walk and held opponents to a .105 batting average (2-for-19) in 5 2/3 total innings.
Vermeulen also set the Jackrabbit career record for pitching appearances over the weekend with 73, breaking the previous mark of 71 set by Gary Olechoski from 2003-06. An All-America selection last season, Vermeulen was honored as Summit League Pitcher of the Week four times in 2010 and once in 2009.
Southern Utah shortstop Bo Cuthbertson was honored as Summit League Player of the Week.
SDSU, which is riding an eight-game winning streak and has won 17 of its last 18 games, enters the week 20-10 overall and atop the Summit League standings with a 7-1 mark. The Jackrabbits are scheduled to travel Wednesday for a non-conference game at Minnesota before opening a 13-game homestand Friday by hosting Southern Utah in a four-game
