Kyle Condry Named Patriot League Rookie of the Week
April 21, 2014
CENTER VALLEY, Pa. - The Patriot League recognized the efforts of freshman right-handed pitcher Kyle Condry from this past week as he was named the league's Pitcher of the Week on Monday afternoon.
Condry (Highland Village, Texas) dominated in his first collegiate start as he went the distance and did not give up an earned run as Navy completed a four-game sweep of Lehigh with a 4-1 win in Sunday's finale. After errantly having his name entered on the lineup card and not warming up as George Coughlin was presumed to be the starter, Condry came off the bench cold and promptly retired Lehigh 1-2-3 in the top of the first inning, including two strikeouts. After allowing an unearned run in the second inning, the freshman cruised versus the Patriot League's top-hitting offense and hurled a complete game with 102 pitches. Condry scattered five hits and a walk while striking out four versus the Mountain Hawks. He faced just two over the minimum in the last six innings on his way to his first career victory. Condry's previous single-game highs were 3.2 innings and 47 pitches.
This is his first career Patriot League weekly honor and tenth overall for the Navy program this season. Prior to this Monday, Anthony Parenti had won three Pitcher of the Week awards (Feb. 18, Feb. 25 and Mar. 17), Travis Blue had earned three Rookie of the Week honors (Feb. 18, March 17 and April 14) and Brad Borosak (Feb. 18), Robert Currie (March 17) and Kash Manzelli (April 14) all had taken single Player of the Week distinctions.
Navy will be back in action with a Wednesday road contest at Delaware State. First pitch between the Midshipmen and Hornets is slated for 3 p.m.
Following the mid-week contest, Navy will host Army in its final regular season Patriot League series of the season. The four-game series begins on Saturday at 12-noon at Max Bishop Stadium with a doubleheader and concludes on Sunday with the same schedule.
