GC Baseball: Kerens' Kannon Ritchie earns Pitcher of the Week award

Mar. 15—Kerens' Kannon Ritchie, who pitched back-to-back no-hitters, striking out a total of 30 batters in 12 innings, was named the Diamond Pro 2A Pitcher of the Week on Wednesday.

The junior left-hander tossed a seven-inning no-hitter, striking out 16 while allowing just one base runner on a walk to beat Rockdale 1-0 on March 7 and then came back five days later and tossed a five-inning no-hitter in Kerens' district opener against Martin's Mill, striking out a remarkable 14 of the 15 batters he faced in an 18-0 romp.
