   The softball team had one of their best games of the season, and added a little history to it as well. Winning both games of the doubleheader via scores of 0-12 and 0-11, they threw a perfect game in the match and a no-hitter in the second. 

   The Bulldogs scored five runs in the bottom of the first inning in game one and kept going from there. Junior Zoey Van Fleet started it off via a two-run triple in the bottom of the first inning, making the score 2-0. Isabella Frank helped bring her home with an RBI single in the bottom of the second.

   Freshman Cailyn Trusdale would hit an RBI single of her own, scoring Frank and making it 4-0. Junior Danielle Guzzardi tallied nine strikeouts and scored a run herself as a batter. 

   The Bulldogs wound up scoring more runs and beating the Yeshiva University Maccabees, and in the process, Guzzardi threw a perfect game in five innings. This ended the Bulldogs’ seven-game losing streak, doing so with a perfect score.


No-Hitter Sweep: Softball Continues Winning Streak

   After an incredible first game where the Bulldogs mercy ruled the Yeshiva University Maccabees via a score of 12-0, pitcher Danielle Guzzardi threw a perfect game in five innings. The Bulldogs’ mercy ruled them again with a score of 11-0, and Guzzardi threw another great game in the process. 

   Guzzardi would hit an RBI double in the first inning making it 3-0, making it her first hit of the season. Zoey Van Fleet would hit a triple in the bottom of the second inning and would wind up scoring due to an error in the outfield making the score 7-0. She ended the game with a perfect 3-3 stateline.

   In the third inning, freshman utility player Jelissa Palenque hit an inside-the-park homerun and scored two runs. Later in the fourth, she would come back again and hit a two-run double that sealed the deal for the Bulldogs. Palenque ended her day with a perfect 3-3 as well and 4 RBIs.

  On top of that offensive, pitcher Guzzardi would throw a no-hitter in five innings and finish off a historic feat in the game. Guzzardi threw the no-hitter after previously throwing a perfect game in game one. The Bulldogs hope to keep this momentum going and continue their winning streak.
