Brekke honored with third NACC weekly award of season

WAUKESHA, Wis. – Concordia University Wisconsin junior Emily Brekke was named the NACC Pitcher of the Week for the third team this season, the league office announced Tuesday.

Brekke (Waterford, Wis.) picked up the honor for going 3-0 during the events of April 10-16. She had a win against Wisconsin Lutheran before picking up the win in both games of a sweep over Marian.

The highlight of the week for the junior right-hander came in game one of Saturday's sweep over the Sabres. In that contest, Brekke tossed her second career no-hitter, striking out eight and walking one in five innings of work. She then came on for the final nine outs of a 3-2 game two win against Marian, striking out five more.

Brekke and the Falcons return to the diamond this weekend with a home doubleheader Saturday against Edgewood.
