Sean Heppner named "NAIA Pitcher of the Week”


Sean Heppner was named "NAIA Pitcher of the Week” for all of the U.S. On Friday, March 8, he broke both a University of British Columbia (UBC) and a Cascade Collegiate Conference (CCC) record for most strikeouts in a single game with 16 strikeouts in 6.1 innings pitched in the UBC Home Opener, winning the game 11–5 against the College of Idaho.

This record was previously held by both Jeff Francis (Played for the Toronto Blue Jays) and Niall Windeler (Drafted by the Minnesota Twins in 2019) while playing for UBC. Ironically, Jeff Francis held the record back in 2002, the year Sean was born.
