WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Junior lefthander Christian MacDonald, who dominated Davidson by retiring 13 straight batters at one stretch, has been named Colonial Athletic Association Co-Pitcher-of-the-Week for the first time in his career.

MacDonald (4-0) shared the honor with Delaware starter Matt Storen who allowed just four hits and no runs over seven innings in a 16-1 win over George Mason.

MacDonald won his fourth consecutive decision and sits at 4-0 on the season, his first season in the starting rotation after pitching out the bullpen his first two years. His seven and 1/3 shut innings against Davidson marked the fourth time this season he’s pitched into the eighth inning and he lowered his earned run average to 2.91.

Against Davidson, MacDonald allowed a pair of walks and a hit in the first three innings before settling down and not allowing another base runner until the eighth. He finished with four strikeouts and recorded 11 ground ball outs.

UNCW continues to shine in the CAA weekly awards as MacDonald became the sixth Seahawk to earn an award. The Seahawks have earned a total of eight weekly honors. The weekend rotation has earned the pitching honor at least once.

The Seahawks (23-10, 7-1 CAA) visit Elon on Apr. 10 to finish off their annual home-and-home series before hosting second-place Delaware (22-8, 9-3 CAA) in a key CAA series at Brooks Field. The series begins on Apr. 12 with a 6 p.m. start
