Jimmy Borzone entered rare company in the Dixie State baseball program.
The junior from Union High School threw just the second no-hitter in Dixie State history on April 2, leading the Trailblazers to a 5-1 win over Tarleton State in the first game of a doubleheader.
Borzone struck out eight, which was one off his career high. He allowed just four baserunners, with one walk and three hit batters.
On Monday, Borzone was named Western Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Week.
The win was Borzone’s first on the season. He’s 1-3 with a 5.82 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 34 innings.
Borzone made just one appearance in Dixie State’s pandemic-shortened 2020 season. In 2019, he made seven appearances out of the bullpen for the St. George, Utah school.
At Union, Borzone was a 4A All-State selection as a senior, when he had a 1.72 ERA and 43 strikeouts in 41.2 innings.
