GREENSBORO, N.C. Senior Jake Stinnett has earned Atlantic Coast Conference Pitcher of the Week honors and has been named a national Louisville Slugger Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball for his performance in game one of Saturday’s doubleheader against UMass, as announced Monday.

It is the second consecutive week Stinnett has been named the ACC Pitcher of the Week.

Stinnett threw Maryland’s seventh no-hitter all-time and the first since Scott Swinson no-hit Delaware on May 13, 2008 in the Terps’ 4-0 shutout of Massachusetts. It was Maryland’s first no-hitter at home since five Terrapin pitchers combined to no-hit Coppin State on March 28, 2007.

The native of Vista, Calif., only faced two batters over the minimum, both of whom walked. Stinnett struck out nine batters.

The no-hitter by Stinnett is the first in the ACC since NC State’s Carlos Rodon and Karl Keglovits combined to no-hit La Salle on Feb. 23 of last year. The most recent individual no-hitter by an ACC pitcher was by Wake Forest’s Brian Holmes, who held Marshall without a hit on March 4, 2012.

Maryland travels to Richmond on Wednesday to take on VCU at 4 p.m. The Terps open their ACC schedule at No. 2 Florida State on Friday.
