Okotoks, AB - The Okotoks Dawgs are pleased to announce that right-handed pitcher, Justin Vernia, has earned WMBL Pitcher of the Week honours. Vernia was outstanding against the Lethbridge Bulls, June 30, in a battle for first place, tossing eight scoreless innings with eight strikeouts while scattering three hits.

The Gonzaga product lowered his ERA to 3.75 with the quality outing and is 1-0 on the campaign.

In his senior year with Gonzaga, Vernia was a workhorse both on and off the field. The 6’2”, 200-pounder collected WCC-All Academic Honourable Mention accolades while going 7-3 on the campaign with a 3.11 ERA. In 89.2 innings pitched, Vernia allowed just 31 runs, striking out 59.

The Dawgs host the Weyburn Beavers tonight in game two of their series. Okotoks took game one, 7-6.
