Former Elizabeth Forward right-hander Dan Altavilla, a junior at Mercyhurst, has been named NCAA Division II Pitcher of the Week for a second time this season by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers' Association.

He is the only pitcher in Division II to receive the honor multiple times. Altavilla first won the award March 26 after pitching a no-hitter against Clarion. The latest comes after Altavilla broke a 99-year-old Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference record May 1 by striking out 19 batters in a first-round PSAC tournament victory over West Chester.
