Witt tosses perfecto
in UH sweep

Star-Bulletin staff

University of Hawaii freshman Felicity Witt threw a five-inning perfect game and the Wahine swept Winthrop in a softball doubleheader at Wahine Stadium last night.

Witt (9-2) struck out five of the 15 batters she faced in a 10-0 rout.

It was only the second perfect game in UH history. Wahine senior Desiree Duran and former All-American Kelly Gentle combined for the other gem against BYU-Hawaii in 1998.

The last no-hitter for the Wahine was thrown by Gentle in 1999.

Sheri Oronoz (2-1) followed Witt's performance with a one-hitter in an 8-0 nightcap win.

April Crowell hit a three-run homer in the first inning to pace UH in the first game.

Stacie Hirano and Trisha Ramos each knocked in two runs in the second game.

Hirano and Ramos both rapped four hits on the day and the Wahine (14-6) pounded out 24 against the Eagles (0-5).

UH next hosts the Malahini Tournament, which begins today and runs through Sunday.

Minn wrestles on

Hawaii's Vail Minn of Southern Colorado College had a third-place finish in last week's NCAA Division II West Regional wrestling tournament to qualify for this week's NCAA championships at Greeley, Colo.

Minn, an Iolani School graduate, was 3-1 in the 157-pound weight class.

UH divers in zone meet

Four divers from the University of Hawaii will compete in the NCAA Zone Qualifying Meet beginning tomorrow in Seattle.
