Sophomore pitcher Celie Hudson has been named the Southern Conference Pitcher of the Week after her complete game performances against UAB and Furman last week.

 
Hudson went 2-0 in the circle, notching a 3-1 win over UAB and a 2-0 victory over Furman. She tossed a pair of complete games and didn't allow an earned run while surrendering only four hits over the 14.0 innings of work.
 
The Paris, Tenn., native took a no-hit bid into the seventh inning during Saturday's 2-0 win over Furman. She held the Paladins to only one hit and struck out four hitters in route to the victory. That performance backed a complete game, three-hitter on Wednesday against UAB in a 3-1 win.
 
Hudson (10-10) has won four-straight starts and allowed just ten hits and two earned runs over her last 22.1 innings in the circle. She carries a 3.74 ERA for the season and leads the pitching staff with 61 strikeouts.

Chattanooga (21-22, 6-4 SoCon) has won its last six Southern Conference games and seven of its last eight overall. The Mocs currently sit in third place in the league standings behind UNCG (9-1) and Mercer (7-1).

The pitcher of the week honor is the first for a Moc since Cori Jennings in the opening week of the 2016 season. A Chattanooga pitcher has received the honor a SoCon-most 62 times since the start of the award in 1994.

Samford's Shelby Maze took this week's Player of the Week honors alongside Hudson.
 
Chattanooga hosts Tennessee State on Wednesday for a non-conference showdown at Frost Stadium at 6 p.m. Tickets are available on GoMocs.com or by calling the ticket office at (423) 266-MOCS. UTC will head to UNCG this weekend for a key three-game SoCon series on Saturday and Sunday.
