After being named the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference baseball athlete of the week La Verne's Christopher Arcos picked up national honors as he was named to the honorable mention list by the NCBWA.
Sophomore Arcos fired a seven-inning no-hitter as the La Verne baseball team routed Claremont-Mudd-Scripps for a 10-0 win in the second game of a doubleheader at Ben Hines Field March 4. The Chino Hills native struck out five batters and was perfect in the last five innings of the game after issuing two walks in the first two innings. He was economical with his pitches, too, throwing only 88.
