Hunter Medine has pitched 21.2 innings in the Texas Collegiate League this summer.

Donaldsonville native and former Ascension Catholic standout Hunter Medine put up a tremendous performance in the Texas Collegiate League last week.

The University of New Orleans hurler led his Acadiana Cane Cutter summer-league team to a victory over the Woodlands Strykers on the strength of seven shutout innings. He only allowed two hits in the win.

Because of his brilliant performance, Medine was named the Texas Collegiate League Pitcher of the Week.

The Cane Cutters' 15-0 victory started off with Medine striking out the first batter of the contest. He continued the momentum as he carried a perfect game into the sixth inning.

It was there that the Strykers came up with their first hit, but Medine ended up finishing the day with five strikeouts. Also, 54 of his 79 pitches in the game went for strikes.

It was Medine's first victory of the summer. He has thrown 21.2 innings since joining the team last month.

The UNO junior is the son of Bunnell and Karla Medine.
