ATTLEBORO, Mass. - Nighthawks senior pitcher Ethan Forrest (East Bridgewater, Mass.) continued his strong start to the season and as a result has been named the New England Collegiate Conference Pitcher of the Week, for the week ending on March 12.

Forrest picked up his third win of the season in Arizona with a 2-1 complete game victory against Bethany Lutheran in eight innings. Forrest allowed one run on 11 hits, striking out seven. In three starts this season, Forrest is 3-0 with a 1.64 ERA. Forrest continues to improve on his school record of career wins; the total now sits at 16 wins.

The Nighthawks were scheduled for four games this week, but with the impending snow on Tuesday, a game against Mass Maritime has been postponed.

Instead, the Nighthawks will start their week of games in the NECC on Saturday with a doubleheader vs. Mitchell College, followed by a single game at Mitchell College on Sunday.
