PRINCESS ANNE, Md.-- Freshman baseball pitcher Jesse Stinnett (Madison Heights, Va.) and senior golfer Michael Veverka (Brunswick, Md.) were named the University of Maryland Eastern Shore Peninsula Regional Medical Center Athletes of the Week for the week ending on April 29th. Both athletes are earning the award for the second time this year.

Stinnett pitched a complete game in the first contest of a three-game series against Coppin State this past Saturday. In the nine inning affair, Jesse gave up five hits and three walks, with only one of those base runners scoring in a 4-1 Hawks victory against the Eagles. Along the way, he set down nine Coppin players via the strikeout. Stinnett picked up his fourth win of the season and has posted an ERA of 3.42 in ten appearances and nine starts with 23 walks and 44 strikeouts.

Veverka participated in the MEAC Championships in Savannah, Ga. this past weekend and ending up tying for fifth out of 29 golfers from six MEAC schools. Mike shot a 219 (76, 73, 70) on a par 72 course, ending his weekend at +3 over par. In eleven rounds of golf, Veverka averaged a 74.91, the highest on the team, with one top five finish and three top ten finishes.

Stinnett and the baseball team will stay in Princess Anne this week for home contests against UMBC on Wednesday and Norfolk State this weekend. Veverka and the Hawk golfers will travel to Florida on Mother's Day Weekend for the PGA Minority Championship.
