Spak hitting mark at Shippensburg

The senior pitcher is leading the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference in strikeouts with 87 and has an 8-2 record this year for the Raiders (16-4, 4-2), who are second in the PSAC Eastern Division.

Against Bloomsburg (20-2), which is ranked No. 3 in NCAA Division II, Spak pitched a three-hitter and struck out 11 batters in the Raiders' 2-0 victory and broke a 40-game winning streak held by Bloomsburg pitcher Kim Maguire.

This season, Spak is averaging 9.56 strikeouts and ranks third in ERA in the PSAC with a mark of 0.63.

Sophomores Raul Molina (St. Paul's) and Richard Dopp (Oakland Mills) will represent the University of Michigan men's team this weekend at the NCAA National Championships at New Mexico State University.

At the Eastern Regional meet at the University of Illinois, Molina scored a 9.500 in the floor exercise and Dopp had 9.750 on the high bar to qualify for the national meet.
