Freshman Chris Mourelle's complete game 1-0 shutout of Old Dominion Sunday, during which he allowed five hits, walked none and struck out five, earned him Conference USA Pitcher of the Week honors. The shutout was Mourelle's second of the season and he ranks sixth in the nation with a 0.59 ERA.
FIU's team earned run average, 1.63, leads the nation. Tied for No. 2 at 1.79 are South Carolina and Houston (University of, not the Astros, although the college might have a better staff).
Mourelle's gem was one of two by FIU pitchers Sunday. Sophomore Corinne Jenkins whirled a three-hitter at FAU Sunday in the Panthers 3-1 win that gave them the weekend series.
Oh, and by the way, FIU posted the job opening for the last open spot in the media relations department referred to a few posts ago. Salary of $37,000 to $43,000 per year.
