Junior ace Alea White tossed her first career no-hitter for the UCF Knights softball team, as they stopped Coastal Carolina 1-0 on Friday:
A first-inning RBI single by Jazmine Esparza was all White needed to clinch the win.
It’s the 17th no-hitter in UCF Softball history and the first since 2015.
The last one was a 5-inning run-rule no-hitter by Mackenzie Audas against Houston. Audas threw five no-hitters for her career, which is more than any other Knight.
The last 7-inning no-no for UCF was also in 2015 by Shelby Turnier against UConn, some two weeks prior to Audas’ no-hitter.
UCF followed up White’s spectacular performance with a 9-1 run-rule victory over Pittsburgh, capped by a Cassady Brewer 3-run double.
We got strikeouts, doubles, and pickoffs! We had it all tonight! Check it pic.twitter.com/rw54FgcPnx— UCF Softball (@UCF_Softball) February 23, 2019
UCF is now 6-4 on the year. They play Pitt again followed by Penn State Saturday at home in the Knights Classic.
