The Southern States Athletic Conference has announced that Blue Mountain Christian’s Josh Smith has been named its Pitcher of the Week.

The lefty torched Stillman Saturday, March 4 for a complete-game one-hitter where he fanned 10 Tiger hitters.

The Tupelo senior is currently 3-1 on the season and sports a 3.38 ERA with 33 strikeouts across 32 innings. 

“Josh has just had a superb season on the mound thus far,” BMCU head coach Taylor Clark said.  “He’s crafty and his fastball has been lively.  He’s been a workhorse and we expect him to continue to be a strong leader for our pitching staff.”

Smith and the Toppers are off to one of the best starts in program history with a 17-3 record overall and 3-0 in the SSAC, riding a 10-game winning streak.
