WESTMINSTER, Md. – Zach Jones (Frederick, Md./Tuscarora), a senior on the McDaniel baseball team, has been named the Team of the Week for the week of Mar. 4-10.

Jones threw a no-hitter to lead the Green Terror (5-2) to earn his second honor in as many weeks. Jones fanned a career-high 12 batters in the team's 10-0 game-one win over Penn State-York. He allowed just one base runner – a fifth-inning, one-out walk – in the seven-inning game. It was McDaniel's first no-hitter since Mar. 14, 2001 and the first in the CC since Mar. 10, 2010.

Jones is now 2-1 on the season with a 2.00 ERA in 18.0 innings of work. He has 28 strikeouts on the year and has thrown 13 consecutive scoreless innings.

The Team of the Week recognizes the top performers at each position from the previous week.

McDaniel returns to action at the RussMatt Central Florida Invitational next week. The Green Terror's eight-game schedule opens with a doubleheader against Daniel Webster on Saturday. The first game of the twinbill starts at 9:30 a.m.
