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.

Here We Go Again With The Same Cummings Highway, 12th Street Flooding

Here we go again with the same pitiful news reports about the Cummings Highway Interstate interchange with I-24 - Flooding yet again after a heavy rain.  TDOT is derelict in not having repaired this years ago.  How hard is it to get some excavators out there to dig up the collapsed drainage pipes which TDOT says are the cause of the flooding and replace them with ...

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

(Roy Exum took a fall, on his newly-operated knee on Friday, and will be out for a few days. This is one of his Saturday Funnies from a few months ago.) It is purported that “The Letter from The Sick Bed” came from the hand of Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, and while I can find no evidence this is true, its message is one we should never ignore in this week’s version of “The Saturday ...
