Hahn tosses no-hitter

to defeat Sherman

SINCLAIRVILLE (April 25) - Pitcher Alyssa Hahn fielded a comebacker and fired to Mikayla Falkner at first base to complete her first career no-hitter as Cassadaga Valley shut out Sherman, 13-0, in Division 2 West softball.

Hahn, a junior, finished with seven strikeouts while she also hit two batters and walked one for the Cougars (6-1, 6-0).

"She had pretty good control. One of the things we've been working on is a change," said Cassadaga Valley coach Ken Balling. "She definitely looked better with that changeup today."

The Wildcats appeared to break up the no-hitter with one out in the fourth inning when Alexa DeKoning lifted a long fly ball over the Cougars' right fielder's head. The ball fell for what Balling said would have been a triple, but a runner on first base was ruled to have left the base early, resulting in a no pitch and an out. DeKoning eventually grounded out to shortstop to end the inning.

Jewelee Schauman cleared the bases with a three-run triple in a five-run second inning for the Cougars. Falkner added a two-run triple in a six-run fifth inning and an RBI triple in the sixth inning. Lexi Ruiz added three hits, including a double, and two RBIs while Savannah Nickerson chipped in a pair of singles.

"It's kind of nice to be on a little bit of a ride again," Balling said. "We have a nice group of girls that can play."
