FARGO, N.D. (NDSU Athletics) — North Dakota State University senior right-handed pitcher Luke Lind was named one of Collegiate Baseball Newspaper’s National Players of the Week and The Summit League Pitcher of the Week for his performance April 24-30.

It marks Lind’s third career Summit League Pitcher of the Week honor.

Lind fired a one-hit shutout with a career-high 11 strikeouts in a 3-0 nine-inning victory at South Dakota State on Friday, April 28. It was the first one-hitter for NDSU baseball since 2002 and the first nine-inning complete-game shutout since 2013.
