Mar. 29—Jacksonville High School graduate Colin Casey won an Ohio Valley Conference honor after pitching seven innings in a combined no-hitter Saturday.

Casey, a junior, started and pitched seven innings in a 5-0 win over Tennessee Tech. Jackson Tavel relieved and threw two-thirds of an inning, while Corley Woods closed out the no-hitter with 1 1/3 innings of work.

This was the 19th no-hitter in JSU baseball history. It was the first no-hitter in the OVC since 2018 and the first in OVC play since 2014

Casey struck out a career-high seven batters. Tavel struck out two, while Woods struck out three.

Tech didn't have a runner reach third base in the game.

The Gamecocks will play again Tuesday when they host Samford at 6 p.m.
