LANCASTER, Pa. – Caroline Brehm (Hanover, Pa./New Oxford), a sophomore on the McDaniel softball team, has been named the Centennial Conference (CC) Pitcher of the Week for the week of Feb. 25-Mar. 3.

Brehm led the Green Terror (2-4) to a 2-2 week, going 1-1 in the circle with a 1.14 ERA. On Saturday, she threw a perfect game in a 15-0, five-inning win over Mary Baldwin. The sophomore went 15-up, 15-down for her first collegiate perfect game and third career no-hitter. She had 28 strikeouts in 12 1/3 innings of work, including 18 in a 4-2, 8-inning loss at Bridgewater on Sunday. The 18 Ks was her second-highest single-game total behind a 20-strikeout showing in last year's 14-inning victory over Ferrum in the NCAA regional.

McDaniel returns to action at home against Penn State-Harrisburg on Tuesday, Mar. 12. The first game of the doubleheader begins at 3 p.m.
