Arundel's Hibbs tosses baseball no-hitter

Spring sports


Falling just short against some of the top softball teams in Anne Arundel County this season, Old Mill was looking for a breakthrough yesterday with top-ranked Severna Park visiting Millersville.

The Patriots found one with key hits from second baseman Erin Buddemeyer, resilient pitching from Angela Barham and some good defense, coming away with a 4-2 win to hand the Falcons their first loss of the season after seven wins.

In the loss, senior pitcher Kaila Jenkins finished with 12 strikeouts to tie the county's public school record for strikeouts in a career. Her 767 strikeouts match the mark set by 1989 Northeast graduate Jennifer Grinath.

Buddemeyer went 2-for-3 with three RBIs and one run - driving in the game-winner with a triple in the bottom of the sixth. Barham, who allowed seven hits and struck out seven, got the win as the Patriots improved to 3-4.

After seeing their 2-0 lead disappear when the Falcons scored two in the sixth, the Patriots found an answer.

"We all stayed positive, kept our heads high and won as a team. We're always the underdog, but this time we finished as the top dogs," Buddemeyer said.

No. 3 Archbishop Spalding 1, John Carroll 0 -- Megan Van Meter drove in the game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth as the Cavaliers (6-3) beat the Patriots.

No. 10 North County 6, Arundel 5 -- Jessica Dembinski scored Roxanne Fisher on an RBI single in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Knights (4-2) the win over the Wildcats (5-2).

No. 12 Institute of Notre Dame 4, Mercy 3 -- Gabrielle Devaud scored two runs and Colleen Matthes struck out 15 as the Indians (6-3) beat the visiting Magic.


No. 2 Arundel 5, North County 0 -- Right-hander Tyler Hibbs pitched a seven inning no-hitter with four strikeouts and only three walks for the visiting Wildcats (7-0). Hibbs also went 2-for-4 with an RBI against the Knights (4-3).

No. 1 Calvert Hall 7, Archbishop Curley 5 -- Nick Wojnowski and Jeff Guthridge each had home runs as the visiting Cardinals (8-1) defeated the Friars (9-7).

No. 7 Mount St. Joseph 4, Cardinal Gibbons 3 -- Brian Hamilton went 2-for-3 with a double, a run scored and an RBI to lead the Gaels (8-2) past the Crusaders (2-7).
