A Perryville baseball alum is making a name for himself in the college ranks.
Western Kentucky University senior and 2018 Perryville High School graduate Devyn Terbrak was been named the Conference USA Pitcher of the Week, as announced by league officials Monday afternoon.
The recognition marks the Hilltoppers’ first Pitcher of the Week honor this season and third since joining C-USA in 2014, following Ryan Thurston (May 2, 2016) and Sean Bergeron (March 9, 2020).
Terbrak complied a career outing in his fourth consecutive Sunday start against South Dakota State on March 12. Terbrak tossed the first Hilltopper no-hitter in a complete-game shutout against the Jackrabbits, while surrendering just one walk and one hit batter to go along with a career-high 14 strikeouts.
His performance marked the first nine-inning complete-game shutout by a WKU pitcher since March 5, 2022, when Sean Bergeron accomplished the same feat in an 11-0 win against Hartford. The Perryville, Missouri native’s 14 strikeouts are tied for the second-most by a Hilltopper since at least 2005 – as far back as WKU game records go – just shy of Bergeron’s 16 in the complete-game shutout against Hartford.
Along with his C-USA Pitcher of the Week honor, Terbrak was recognized by multiple other national outlets for his impressive outing. D1Baseball ranked him No. 1 overall on the Top 40 Pitchers list from the March 12 slate of games, Collegiate Baseball Newspaper named him one of its National Players of the Week, while Baseball America tabbed him as one of its Week Four Standouts.
