Greene 8, Delhi 0

GREENE – Greene senior Megan McDermott certainly made the most of her first opportunity to pitch this season.

McDermott, last year’s starting pitcher, deferred to freshman Rebecca Hanrahan the first 16 games while recovering from an off-season injury. She made a triumphant return to the mound Monday tossing a no-hitter against the Bulldogs striking out 10 and walking two. “She’s been throwing the last four days in practice and she’s looked good,” said Greene coach Rick Smith. “I wanted to give her a chance to pitch a home game. She’s been a great teammate through her injury and she was going to be our number one pitcher until she was injured. What a nice tandem (of pitchers) we’ll have going into sectionals.”



Greene (15-2), who clinched the MAC Division One title last week, received three hits, three runs scored and one RBI from Caitlin Willis. McDermott helped herself at the plate with two hits and one ribbie.

Greene is at B-G Wednesday.
