Rearick Tabbed as Peach Belt Pitcher of the Week

AUGUSTA, GA – North Georgia senior left-handed pitcher Chris Rearick has been named the Peach Belt Conference Pitcher of the Week announced this afternoon by the league office. 

Rearick picks up the award after his first start in a North Georgia uniform and his first appearance at the NCAA Division II level after transferring from Berry College for his senior season.

In the Saints’ season opener last Friday evening, senior left-handed pitcher Chris Rearick stole the show in his North Georgia debut, tossing eight innings and allowing just four hits and no earned runs while striking out seven Falcon batters.

He held Pfeiffer to just a .143 batting average against him, while allowing just one extra base hit in his eight complete innings of work. Rearick picked up his first victory for the Saints after posting a 9-2 record last season for the Vikings. 

North Georgia returns to action next weekend, traveling to Stillman College for a doubleheader on Saturday afternoon set to start at 2:00 p.m., followed by the final game of the series on Sunday afternoon. The Saints will then return home to the friendly confines of Bob Stein Stadium for eight of their next nine games.
