Shenandoah's Bell earns national honor

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Shenandoah University senior pitcher Jacob Bell has been named to the Team of the Week in selections announced Wednesday evening by the website.

Bell, a former James Wood High School standout, tossed eight shutout innings in the Hornets’ 5-3 victory over No. 22 Oswego State on Sunday. Bell (2-0) allowed just two hits and two walks while striking out nine in his 103-pitch performance. Bell retired Oswego in order in the first, second, third, sixth, seventh, and eighth innings and retired the final 11 hitters he faced.

Shenandoah (10-1), now ranked No. 9 in the nation, is back in action Saturday in a noon ODAC doubleheader against Hampden-Sydney.
