Jackson's Perfect Game Highlights Lady Lions' Wednesday Wins

3/6/2013 — MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - Penn State Altoona freshman pitcher Hannah Jackson (Troy, PA/Troy) tossed a perfect game for the softball team on Wednesday morning, helping the Lady Lions defeat Green Mountain College 14-0. Penn State Altoona also beat Division II Malone University 10-5 later in the day.

Jackson's perfect game is the third all-time for the Penn State Altoona softball program. In five innings, she struck out eight batters while posting a spotless line.

Amanda Brennan (Jefferson Hills, PA/Thomas Jefferson), Raychel DeArmitt (Bellefonte, PA/Bellefonte), and Ala Miller (Muncy, PA/Muncy) each collected two hits in the win. One of Brennan's hits was a home run, her first as a college softball player.

In Penn State Altoona's second contest of the day, DeArmitt was the starting pitcher and earned her first win with the team. She went four innings, allowing two earned runs on two hits and one walk to go along with three strikeouts.

Jackie Smith (Hollidaysburg, PA/Hollidaysburg) added three innings in relief, yielding a pair of unearned runs and striking out five.

Gina Ricci (Garnet Valley, PA/Garnet Valley) led the Lady Lions at the plate with three hits.

Smith, Lauren Bove (Mechanicsburg, PA/Cumberland Valley), Lily Glunt (Snow Shoe, PA/Bald Eagle), and Clarissa Keller (Spring Mills, PA/Penns Valley) had two hits each.
