MOUNT OLIVE -- Jackson Massey, who pitched a career-high 7 2/3 innings in nationally seventh-ranked Mount Olive's series-opening win over No. 20 Erskine, has been named Conference Carolinas Baseball Pitcher of the Week, it was announced Tuesday. Massey becomes the second Mount Olive pitcher and fifth Trojan baseball player overall to earn a conference weekly award this season.
Massey, a senior left-hander from Eureka pitched the Trojans to a 5-2 win at Erskine in the opening game of the three-game series this past Friday. Massey scatted eight hits, struck out four and walked only one to hold the Flying Fleet seven runs below their average. He came within four outs of pitching a complete game before Erskine began to put together a rally with two outs in the bottom of the eighth. Massey's win helped Mount Olive clinch the regular season conference title and earn the No. 1 seed in this weekend's conference tournament.
Christiaan Rombaut was named Player of the Year, Adam Miracle was selected as Freshman of the Year and Cole Tallman won Coach of the Year as Mount Olive swept the top three honors on the 2010 All-Conference Carolinas Men's Volleyball Team.
