Cal Poly Pomona’s Michael Koval earns weekly honor


Cal Poly Pomona’s Michael Koval (Alta Loma High School) has been named California Collegiate Athletic Association Pitcher of the Week.

The junior right-hander earned a win for the Broncos in Saturday’s series opener against No. 19 Cal State Monterey Bay. He went seven innings and held his opponents to just a .200 average, allowing just one earned run on five hits, while striking out seven Otter batters.

This is the fourth Pitcher of the Week selection for a Cal Poly Pomona pitcher this season.

Player of the Week honors went to junior outfielder-first baseman Chris Nicholson of San Francisco State.
