Zalewski Earns D3 Independents Player of the Week

The Association of Division III Independents recently named Illinois Tech Baseball’s John Zalewski Player of the Week.

Illinois Tech starting pitchers threw three consecutive complete games in a two-day span in Florida last week, with Zalewski being one of those arms. In a 1-0 win against Fitchburg State on March 16, the Chicago native went the distance in the seven-inning contest, striking out eight while allowing just three hits and two walks. The shutout also included a stretch of six straight hitters who were sent down swinging.

The Scarlet Hawks are slated to open the home schedule on Saturday, March 24 at noon with a doubleheader against Milwaukee School of Engineering at Ed Glancy Field. Live audio, video, and statistics will be available. The live audio will be powered by Illinois Media School.
