MADISON, S.D. – The North Star Athletic Association (NSAA) has selected Dakota State's (S.D.) Bryant Westra as its Baseball Pitcher-of-the-Week, the third edition of the weekly honor was announced Monday by the conference office.

Westra, 6-foot-3 pitcher, earned a save and a victory as DSU kicked off the North Star Athletic Association conference season with a four-game series split with Valley City State (N.D.).  In the second game of the series on March 28, he pitched in the seventh inning to pick up his first save of the season after allowing a hit in 5-4 Trojans' victory.

Westra also earned his first pitching victory of the season as the Trojans defeated the Vikings 9-3 in the third game of the series on March 29.  After giving up two runs in the opening inning, he limited the Vikings to one run for the rest of the game.  He retired 12 consecutive VCSU's batters from the last out of the third inning through the first two outs of the seventh inning until he gave up back-to-back singles.
