It marks the first SEC Pitcher of the Week honor for the Aggies this season. Hill is the fourth Texas A&M pitcher to garner the accolade, joining Grayson Long, who earned the award on two separate occasions, along with Daniel Mengden and Kyle Simonds.
The Aggies resume play Tuesday at 6:30 pm when they face the Dallas Baptist Patriots on Olsen Field at Blue Bell Park.
