Chipper Smith throws shutout for Cumberland
Everything was working on the mound Saturday for former Golden Valley High pitcher Chipper Smith.
Smith, who graduated from Golden Valley in 2007, threw a no-hitter for Cumberland University of Tennessee in a 5-0 victory over Point Park University in a seven-inning contest.
It was the program’s first no-hitter since 2004, and Smith was recognized as one of four Louisville Slugger National Players of the Week for his accomplishment.
Smith struck out 14 batters in the contest and allowed two baserunners on a walk and a hit batter.
The pitcher had a perfect game through five innings, but hit the leadoff batter and walked another batter after consecutive strikeouts in the sixth inning.
Smith, now a college junior, attended the College of Southern Nevada before transferring to Cumberland.

Ex-Hart swimmers make Championships
Two former Hart High swimmers have qualified for the NCAA Division II National Championships at the Mansfield ISD Natatorium in Mansfield, Texas.
University of Indianapolis swimmers Samantha Asencio and freshman Hayley Good will join 14 teammates at the event, held March 14 to March 17.
Asencio qualified in the 100- and 200-yard butterfly races and will take part in the 200-yard medley relay.
Good is on the 400- and 800-yard freestyle relay teams, and will compete individually in the 100-yard, 200-yard and 500-yard freestyle races.
In 2011, Good won the Foothill League title in the 100 and 200.
Both girls were named All Americans while at Hart in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
The pair have helped the University of Indianapolis women’s squad climb to No. 14 in the NCAA Division II national rankings.
