Gloucester Catholic senior Mike Shawaryn continued his red-hot start on Sunday night.

Shawaryn, a right-hander who has signed with Maryland, fired his second no-hitter as Gloucester Catholic beat St. Joseph of Metuchen 3-0 at the Diamond Nation complex in Flemington, Hunterdon County.

Gloucester Catholic, the No. 1 team in The Inquirer Top 10 and No. 1 team in the Newark Star Ledger state rankings, improved to 14-1.

St. Joseph of Metuchen is No. 7 in the Star Ledger state rankings.

Shawaryn missed all but the first two outings of his junior year with an elbow injury. He has come back for his senior season in high style.

Shawaryn pitched a no-hitter earlier this season against Glassboro.

Shawaryn's numbers are off the charts. He's 4-0. He's allowed seven hits and zero runs in 25 innings. He's struck out 41.
