BLOOMSBURG- Bloomsburg University baseball player, Casey Markey (York/ Dallastown) has been named Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Eastern Division Pitcher of the Week for the period ending April 1, 2007.

After dropping the first game of a doubleheader to East Stroudsburg on Friday, the Huskies needed a big showing to help salvage a split. Casey Markey, a senior, delivered with a dominant game-two performance. Markey tossed a complete game, allowing just five hits and one run, while striking out two in a 13-1 win.

Markey is 2-2 this season with a team best 2.58 E.R.A. He has a WHIP (Walks+ Hits/ Innings Pitched) of 1.02 and has held opposing hitters to a .228 batting average.

Bloomsburg, 7-15, 2-2 in the PSAC East, will visit Susquehanna tomorrow at 3 p.m.
