    ST. LOUIS - The Missouri Valley Conference announced senior Katie McNamara as this week's State Farm MVC Pitcher of the Week on Monday.

    McNamara (Putnam Valley, N.Y./Putnam Valley HS) went 2-0 in two starts at the Samford Bulldog Bash in Birmingham, Ala. to help the Salukis remain undefeated this season.

    The senior lefthander opened with her first career no-hitter with six strikeouts in a 8-0 five-inning win over Austin Peay on Saturday, and followed with a three-hit shutout against Gardner-Webb on Sunday.

    Saturday's no-hitter was less than a week removed from tossing a complete-game one-hit shutout against Cal State Northridge on Sunday, Feb. 8 at the Cathedral City Kickoff.

    McNamara has thrown three-straight shutouts and in 10 total innings during the weekend, she only allowed three hits and faced three over the minimum 30 batters.

    In 17 innings pitched this season McNamara has not allowed a run and only surrendered four hits. She has also recorded 17 strikeouts and only walked one batter.

    This is McNamara's first career State Farm MVC Pitcher of the Week award, and the second straight for the Saluki pitching staff after sophomore Danielle Glosson was selected last week.
