Westminster Brother Named Pitcher of the Week Honorable Mention by NCBWA

Freshman Derek S. Archer (Alpha Eta–Westminster ’22) was recently an honorable mention for “Pitcher of the Week” for the NCBWA and was named the “Rookie of the Week” by the NCBWA.  Derek notched his first collegiate win with a one-hit, nine-inning shutout in Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Grinnell College (Iowa). The right-hander, who carried a no-hitter into the ninth inning, was named to D3baseball.com’s Team of the Week and was the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week after striking out nine and not allowing a walk.

In addition to pitching for the Westminster Blue Jays, Derek is serving his chapter as Number V (Historian).  He attended Francis Howell North High School in St. Charles, Missouri.
