Right-hander Kevin Hill has earned three weekly awards this week after he carried a no-hitter into the ninth inning in a one-hit shutout with a career-high 15 strikeouts against league leader Georgia State.

The game was his seventh consecutive win of the season and his second complete game of the year. He also retired 16 consectutive Panther batters from the third to the eighth inning in the game.

On Tuesday, Hill earned two more weekly awards after he was named the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association and Sun Belt Conference Pitcher of the Week.

In eight starts this season Hill has a 7-0 record with a 2.22 ERA, 66 strikeouts, 21 walks, two complete games and one shutout in 56 2/3 innings pitched. He leads the conference in strikeouts entering the week as well.
