Congratulations go out to College of the Ozarks junior right-hander Collan Thrasher, who was named as the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Pitcher of the Week on Monday afternoon.

Thrasher opened the Bobcats’ baseball season on February 2nd with a 7-inning complete game as the Bobcats defeated Lindenwood University - Belleville by a score of 5-1. The Atlanta, Missouri native was dominant, scattering just 3 hits while striking out 7, walking no one, and yielding no earned runs on 80 pitches.

Last spring, the Bobcats recorded their second consecutive season with 30 or more wins. Thrasher played a key role in the Bobcats’ success, posting a 9-5 win-loss record, which featured  67 strikeouts.
