Brian Johnson (East Haddam, Conn.) of the baseball team has been recognized as the Springfield College Athletics Maroon Club Male Student-Athlete of the Week after his dominant pitching performance for the Pride this past week.

Johnson, a Sport Management major and a sophomore pitcher for Springfield College, made history for the Pride this past week, as he became the first Springfield College baseball student-athlete to throw a no hitter in the last 16 seasons when he pitched a complete-game no hitter in the Pride's 5-0 win over Colby Sawyer on Friday. Johnson totaled seven strikeouts in the seven-inning game, while only walking one.
