ROCKFORD, Ill. - The Rockford University baseball program received its first individual award of the season late Monday when senior pitcher David Camacho (Elk Grove, Ill.) was named NACC Baseball Pitcher of the Week. This marks the first time in his career Camacho has been recognized by the NACC, and he is also the first RU spring student-athlete to earn a weekly award from the conference.
In his lone start of the week, Camacho fired a complete game propelling the Regents to a 2-1 victory over Defiance. The senior tossed all 9 innings allowing just 5 hits and no earned runs, while striking out 6 and walking none. Through his first two starts of the season, Camacho is 2-0 with a 1.20 ERA and 11 strikeouts compared to just 3 walks.
The RU baseball team returns to the diamond for a three-game series at DePauw University beginning on Saturday, March 18 at 11:00 AM central time.
