Wheeler roundup: Paride strikes out 16 in no-hitter

N. GROSVENORDALE — Jen Paride was almost untouchable as the Wheeler High softball pitcher no-hit Tourtellotte Memorial Tuesday.

Paride struck out 16 Tigers en route to a 10-1 ECC Small Division win.

“She struck out eight batters through the first three innings,” Wheeler coach Joe Cawley said. “They (Tourtellotte) started bunting a lot after that. They scored on an error, but they didn’t hit a ball to the outfield the whole game.”

Wheeler led 9-0 by the time the Tigers (2-2, 1-1 ECC-Small) got their first run in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Paride also walked four batters in her seven innings of work.

Paride has started all three games this season and has a 0.35 earned run average in those contests.

In addition to her no-hitter, Paride was 2 for 5 at the plate with a double, an RBI and a run scored.

Raven Houck had four hits, including a double, scored twice and drove in a run.

“She’s unstoppable,” Cawley said. “She almost hit one out at the start of the game. We hit her lead off just so she gets more at bats.”

Samantha Muller singled, doubled, drove in a run and scored another.

Kylie Baker singled twice scored twice and drove in three.

The Lions (2-1, 1-0 ECC-Small) host Ledyard Thursday at 4 p.m.




STONINGTON — Only two Whippets’ players completed their nine holes and the Lions took advantage with a win in Tuesday’s ECC Small Division match.

Windham (0-2, 0-1 ECC-Small) forfeited two matches and had a withdrawal from a third.

Max Reck shot a 44 out of the No.1 position and was the match’s medalist on the par-36 nine holes.

Michael Anderson was second with a 47 out of the fourth position, Peyton Mulhern put up a 48 out of the third position and Colton Lamb’s 53 in the fifth spot rounded out Wheeler’s team score of 192.

Jacob Umphlett won his match in the second spot with a 54.

Next up for Wheeler is a visit to St. Bernard today at 2:30 p.m.

Justine Gouvin accounted for the remaining goal.
