Smith continued her mid-season tear as she threw a no-hitter against Georgia Southwestern in her only action of the week. The junior from Suwanee, Ga., and reigning National Pitcher of the Week struck out 11 of the 17 batters she faced over five innings as the Nighthawks won 8-0. She issued no walks and the only two baserunners GSW had were hit batters, of which only one made it to second base. She struck out the side twice to boost her season total to 198, tied for the lead in the PBC and NCAA Division II. Smith is currently eighth on the PBC’s all-time career strikeouts list; she is also tied for fifth in career wins.
