DELPHOS — Lady Cat junior Audrey North threw a no-hitter on Wednesday to lead Jefferson to an 11-1 victory over Lima Perry. North struck out seven in her five innings of work.

“Today was a great day for Audrey on the mound even with a tight strike zone,” said Jefferson head coach Michelle Schuerman. “We executed when we need to at the plate and never let up.”

A leadoff walk by North setup an early run for the Commodores but it was light out for Perry batters after the first inning.

The Lady Cats scored six in the second inning and five more in the third to blow the game wide-open. Jayla Rostorfer went 1-for3 from the plate with a pair of runs and two RBI’s. Rileigh Rahrig also had a big day for Jefferson, going 2-for-2 with two runs and two RBI’s.

“I am very proud of the girls tonight even with battling in the cold,” Schuerman said. “We played as a team , the team I know and believe in. We had our bats hot and our defense tight for our pitcher. We used smart aggressive base running to pound in some much needed runs. These girls are improving everyday, learning from the mental mistakes and using what they know to keep on climbing. As always, I’m proud to be their coach.”

Annabell Plaughter took the loss for Perry after going four innings on the mound and giving up eight earned runs.

Jefferson improves to 2-9 (0-1 NWC) while Perry falls to 2-7 (1-2 NWCC).
