Towson freshman throws no-hitter in softball win

April 03, 2005|By Staff

Freshman righthander Jessica Fisher pitched the first no-hitter of her career in the nightcap as Towson swept a Colonial Athletic Association doubleheader from Drexel by scores of 5-1 and 1-0 at Towson Center Field today.

With the two wins, the CAA-leading Tigers (15-11, 5-0) upped their winning streak to seven games in a row.

After senior righthander Jessica Wides (Damascus) threw a four-hitter in the opener, Fisher won her seventh game of the season in her no-hitter over Drexel (6-9, 2-3).

Fisher allowed only two base runners in the game. In the third inning, freshman Victoria Hanks was hit by a pitch. She stole second base and advanced to third base on a wild pitch before Fisher pitched out of the jam. In the fourth inning, the Dragons had their only other base runner of the game as senior Elizabeth Fuller reached on an error by Tiger first baseman Samantha Schaukowitch.

Fisher, who faced 23 batters in the win, did not walk anyone and had two strikeouts.
