Athlete of the Week: Mike Koperniak
Hoosac Valley's Mike Koperniak helped his team to a 2-1 record on the week by pitching nine scoreless innings from the bump.
Koperniak first helped sophomore teammate Justin Nichols earn his first varsity win by pitching two scoreless frames, striking out three and walking two to earn the save in a 4-3 win over Taconic.
The senior captain then put in a dominate performance in a 14-0 win over Lenox on Wednesday as he threw a no-hitter, striking out 13 batters and walking four to improve his record to 2-0 on the season.
On the year, Koperniak has allowed just one earned run in 14 total innings of work, giving him an impressive 0.50 ERA. Overall he has 27 strikeouts compared to just 10 walks and has been a huge part of why Hoosac has started the year off at 4-1.
