TOWSON, Md. - The Tigers return home to the Tiger Softball Complex Wednesday when the team hosts the Howard Bison for a doubleheader beginning at 3 p.m.
Towson (16-21, 3-6 CAA) recorded a rare feat in its 2-0 victory over Drexel Saturday, as junior starting pitcher Katie Lingmai threw the ninth no-hitter in school history to earn the win. Lingmai, who had also pitched a no-hitter in 2010, struck out four Dragons en route to her 10th win of the season.
Lingmai and Jessica Fisher are the only players in school history to throw multiple no-hitters. Fisher threw both of hers in 2005.
It has been a historic season for Lingmai, who earlier in the season became the program's all-time leader in career strikeouts.
Freshman shortstop Hailey Balk has been swinging a hot bat recently and is on a seven-game hit streak. Since March 31 when the streak began, Balk has raised her batting average from .287 to .333. Her current average is sixth in the Colonial Athletic Association.
Senior second baseman Haley Stueckler has played well over her last five games, collecting five hits and scoring five runs. She also hit a pair of home runs against the Dragons in game two of a doubleheader Friday.
