Grant Black

University of Arkansas at Monticello pitcher Grant Black has been selected as the Great American Conference Pitcher of the Week after leading the Weevils to a 3-0 series sweep of NWOSU.

Black, a senior from Newport, kicked off the weekend series against the Rangers of Northwestern Oklahoma State, throwing a complete game shutout, allowing four hits, one walk, and striking out nine to earn the 9-0 win in the first game one of the series.

Black recorded his second shutout of the season and pitched his third complete game of the season. He improved his overall record to 4-2 and lowered his season earned run average to 1.91.
