TUCSON, Ariz. ?- Arizona sophomore David Coulon has been named the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Week, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today. The weekly honor is the first for a Wildcat player this season and 33rd all-time selection for Arizona.
Coulon, from Hanford, Calif., tossed a complete-game, seven-hit shutout at USC on Saturday. The left-hander struck out seven and walked one, while posting Arizona’s fourth shutout of the year. He became the first Wildcat pitcher this season to work all nine innings and is the first to toss a complete-game shutout since former Wildcat Kevin Guyette did so last season. Coulon’s effort on the mound handed the Wildcats their fourth-straight season-series victory over USC, a feat Arizona had not accomplished once in a single season against the Trojans since 1993.
Arizona completed its season with a five game winning streak and a 27-28 overall record. The Wildcats went 12-12 in the Pac-10, good enough for fourth place in the conference standings.
