Frankfort, Ky. – Josh Dunn, a senior pitcher from Lexington, Kentucky lead not only Division II, but all the NCAA with 11 complete games for the 2017 season.
Dunn led the Kentucky State University baseball team with an 8-5 record, posted a 3.43 ERA, and started in 15 games during his senior campaign. He edged out fellow SIAC pitcher Evan Krenz of Paine College, who completed 10 of his starts.
“Josh’s success this year is the culmination of four years developing in our program,” said head coach Rob Henry. “He progressed from an inexperienced freshman figuring out the game at the college level to become one of the best pitchers in the country by the time he left. It was a joy to watch him develop, and in all my years of coaching, he’s been one of the best I’ve had in terms of leadership, competitiveness and a passion for making himself and the team better. You can use all of the accolades with Josh, he’s earned them during his time here, and he leaves this program in much better shape than when he arrived.”
Dunn’s senior campaign will go down in the KSU baseball record as one of the more successful individual seasons in program history. Dunn set a school record with his 11 complete games and is the first ever Thorobred to finish as the leader in the NCAA in the category.
