DEFIANCE, OHIO -- A pair of pitchers have earned Defiance College Athlete of the Week honors for last week, as Paris Creek (Bryan) and Sarah Kaya (Lorain/Clearview) were awarded the honor for last week's efforts on the hill.

Creek was named the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week for his performances last week, helping the Yellow Jackets to a 2-2 mark last week while making three appearances on the mound, including starting in DC's 4-1 victory over Bluffton last Tuesday, where he went eight innings while allowing one unearned run with four strikeouts. He ended the week with a 1-0 record and a 0.93 earned run average to go along with six strikeouts in 9.2 total innings.

Kaya led the Defiance College softball team to a pair of victories last week, as DC posted a 3-1 overall mark. She kicked off her week with a three-hit shutout of Manchester (Ind.)
