Varsity Softball NO-HITTERS -- Good afternoon Ted. I saw Gavin’s comments on the Website… Kathy and I wanted to let you know that Senior Pitcher Shannon Aman recorded a NO HITTER in our first game vs. Prauge. Then in her next start against OKC McGuinness she pitched another NO HITTER in the 10-0 victory. Very impressive for someone who is a Senior and has not pitched very many Varsity innings in her career. Didn’t know if you had been advised of this. -- Thanks, N.
