CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – After pitching Harvard's first no-hitter in 17 years, Noah Zavolas earned Ivy League Pitcher of the Week honors and it didn't stop there. The senior from Acton, Mass. has been tabbed NCAA Baseball's Player of the Week, The Perfect Game/Rawling's Pitcher of the Week, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) National Pitcher of the Week, College Sports Madness National Pitcher of the Week, College Sports Madness Ivy League Player of the Week and one of Collegiate Baseball News' National Players of the Week.
Last Friday evening, Zavolas threw a complete game and no-hitter, leading Harvard to a 4-0 win over Ivy League rival Yale. The no-hitter was the first for the Crimson since 2001 when Ben Crockett tossed a no-no against Dartmouth. Zavolas notched a career-high 12 strikeouts, hurled over 115 pitches and walked just one batter. This season, just 19 no-hitters have been recorded in Division I baseball.
During the 2018 campaign, Zavolas is averaging 9.56 strikeouts per nine innings and leads the pitching staff with 48 innings pitched. He's averaging the lowest ERA of his career by far at 3.38, has the best record on the roster at 4-1 and leads the Crimson with 51 strikeouts.
