BUIES CREEK, N.C. – Campbell's Alex Yarem has been named Big South Co-Pitcher of the Week, announced by the conference office on Monday.

Yarem went the distance for a complete game shutout, leading Campbell to a 6-0 win over Charleston Southern Saturday at Jim Perry Stadium.

A redshirt sophomore, Yarem recorded his first complete game shutout, and Campbell's first shutout of the season in the win. The Apex, N.C. native surrendered five hits, struck out five and walked one in the win. He faced more than four Bucs in an inning just once, allowing a pair of singles in the fifth.

The honor marks Yarem's first career Big South weekly award, and the fourth for Campbell this season. Matthew Barefoot was named Big South Player of the Week on March 6, and has been named the league's Freshman of the Week twice.

For the season, Yarem is 2-0 with a 3.54 ERA in eight appearances, making three starts.

Yarem was joined by Charleston Southern's Daniel Johnson as co-pitchers of the week. Johnson totaled 15 strikeouts in 7 1/3 innings and did not issue a walk, going 1-0 in two appearances.

The Camels travel to UNCW on Tuesday, April 3 before returning to Big South play at High Point April 7-9.
