SHREVEPORT, La. – Senior right-hander Holden Novak has been named one of three NCAA Division III Starting Pitchers of the Week, announced D3Baseball.com on Tuesday, February 16.

The Team of the Week is D3baseball.com's weekly honor roll, in its fifth season of recognizing the top performers at each of nine positions from the previous week. This is the first Team of the Week of the 2016 season, thus includes games from February 1-14.

Novak tallied a pair of wins in two appearances on the bump for the Gents so far in 2016. He leads the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference in both wins and strikeouts (16), and ranks fifth in the conference with a 1.50 ERA.

In his first start of the year against Louisiana College, a 5-1 Gents win, Novak went all seven innings and allowed just three hits and an unearned run while striking out 10. He took a no-hitter into the fifth.

In his second start February 14, he dealt #20 UT Tyler its first loss of the season. He allowed six hits and two runs with six strikeouts in five innings of work.

Centenary returns to the diamond Friday for a three-game series against Southwestern. First pitch on Friday night is scheduled for 6 p.m.
