There seems to be no stopping College Park softball pitcher Stephani Fairclough these days. On Tuesday she threw all 18 innings of a 4-3 College Park win over Las Lomas. Keep in mind she struck out 24 on Tuesday. Today, she had perhaps an even more impressive performance, striking out 14 in throwing a no-hitter against Acalanes. College Park won the game 3-0.
For those of you scoring at home, Fairclough struck out 38 batters in two games this week. For those wondering, it’s not close to a record but you’d have to go a long way to get to that record. Fairfield’s Alicia Hollowell, in a 30-inning game against Woodland in 2001, struck out 61 to set the record.
