SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Endicott College freshman Mike Nich (Amity, Conn.) pitched his way to The Commonwealth Coast Conference Rookie of the Week as released by the Conference office on Monday afternoon. Nich proved to be an integral part of Endicott's Cinderella run to the Conference semifinals with his efforts over \#14-ranked Curry College.
The freshman right-hander tossed a six-hit, nine-inning shutout against host and top-seeded Curry on the second day of the TCCC Tournament, forcing the Colonels into the loser's bracket. Nich struck out three and walked three in his only appearance of the week.
Nich and the Gulls will wrap up their 2009 campaign when they travel to Suffolk University on Wednesday afternoon for a 4:00 p.m. matchup.
