Taylor University pitcher Drake Gongwer was dealing on Saturday, throwing seven no-hit innings. Per Taylor’s website, Gongwer’s no-hitter was the first in over 15 seasons. The now Trojan sophomore had 7 Ks and 1 walk. Drake Gongwer was also named the Crossroads Player of the Week!
Gongwer played a pivotal role in the 2017 26-2 3A Regional and undefeated NLC Championship season. He finished the Panther season 7-1 with 78 Ks. Gongwer, along with current Panther hurler Matt Dutkowski, threw a combined no-hitter vs Westview that ended in a 1-0 loss. We are very excited to see Drake come out on the other side of this one with a ‘W’! Best of luck to Drake Gongwer the rest of the way!
