Fischer Earns NSIC Pitcher Of The Week Honors

BURNSVILLE, MN — University of Sioux Falls ace Derek Fischer was named the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Pitcher of the Week the conference office announced on Tuesday.

The senior right-hander notched a quality start in the Cougars’ 4-3 season-opening victory against Colorado State University-Pueblo, making it three years straight that USF has won on Opening Day.

The former Brandon Valley standout allowed three runs (none earned) on four hits with two walks and a pair of strikeouts in six innings of work. Of the 96 pitches Fischer tossed, 59 were strikes and he dealt first pitch strikes to 12 of the 27 Thunder Wolves he faced. He also induced eight ground outs to six fly balls for a 1.33 GO/AO ratio.
