Lansdale Catholic's Mary Cate Scott and Kennedy-Kenrick's Nikki Troisi each pitched no-hitters, carrying their teams to PIAA District 12 softball championships Thursday at La Salle University.
Troisi pitched her fifth no-hitter of the season, blanking Public League champ Masterman, 13-0, in the five-inning Class AA championship game.
Troisi (15-4), a junior righthander, notched her third perfect game this spring, sending the Wolverines into Monday's state tournament against St. Pius X.
Kennedy-Kenrick rapped a dozen hits, led by Amanda Light's four runs batted in on a double and a triple, and two hits and two RBIs each by Talia Catagnus and Monica Levins.
Seven Wolverines contributed hits to the victory.
District 12 Class AAA. Scott's bid for a four-inning perfect game missed by one hit batter as Lansdale Catholic notched a 15-0 win over Franklin Towne Charter.
Scott, a sophomore, struck out six batters and helped herself by going 4 for 4 at the plate with three doubles and six runs batted in.
Megan Martin had two singles, a double, two RBIs and three runs scored, and Brittany Bray chipped in with three hits and three runs scored among the Crusaders' (16-5-1) 17 hits.
District 1 Class AAA. Nazareth Academy (23-0) met West Chester East for the District championship for the second straight year and beat the Vikings again, 4-0, at Norristown. Nazareth prevailed by 8-7 in 2009.
Righthander Erica Cipolloni struck out 14 East batters, walked four and gave up just one hit. She also had three of her team's 10 hits, and drove in a pair of runs.
Alex Sawicki tripled in a run for the Pandas, who advance to the state tournament on Monday.
District 1 Class AAA. Three seventh-inning runs and a solid combined pitching performance by Kelly Goslin and Erica Gritz carried Coatesville to a 3-0 shutout of Bishop Shanahan in the District 1 third-place game at Downingtown East.
Shanahan had beaten the Red Raiders by 3-1 and 1-0 during the Ches-Mont League regular season.
Gritz started the game, getting one strikeout in three innings, and Goslin pitched four innings with four strikeouts to get the win.
"We've been splitting games with both [pitchers] since Districts began," Coatesville coach Wendy Ford said. "We've been on a roll so we decided to stay with it."
With two outs in the top of the seventh inning and Kira Gleason on first base, Meredith Waters walked and Blake Miller lined a two-run single.
Mallory Lyons singled in Miller for an insurance run off Shanahan pitcher Kate Poppe, who had nine strikeouts.
Goslin completed the win by getting two ground balls and a strikeout in the bottom of the seventh.
