College sports in brief: Palmer, Mix earn conference honors; Hamilton College women's lacrosse ranked


Palmer pitcher of the week again

Camden High School graduate and SUNY Cobleskill junior Wyatt Palmer is the North Atlantic Conference’s Pitcher of the Week for a third time.

Palmer, a junior right-hander, notched a rare nine-inning shutout over SUNY Poly last Monday, allowing only three hits while striking out six and walking two.

Palmer also earned the honor once earlier in April as well as in March.

This season, Palmer -- a transfer from Cayuga Community College -- is 4-1 overall in five starts with a 2.45 ERA in 29 1/3 innings. He has struck out 17 on the season.

Camden’s Mix earns Empire 8 honor

Camden High School and Utica University freshman Mackenzie Mix is the Empire 8’s outdoor track athlete of the week for the second time this month.

Mix broke both of her recent outdoor school records with a strong double in the 100- and 200-meter dash events Saturday at Westfield State.

Her time of 12.18 seconds was the best in 100-meters, while she bested her record by almost two tenths at 200-meters with a winning time of 25.26 seconds. Her latest 100-meter time is 22nd in the nation. Mix earned her second E8 weekly accolade of the spring.
