SANTEE, Calif. – Kendra Kuper threw a perfect game and the San Diego Christian College Softball team swept their season openers against the University of Antelope Valley winning 10-2 in Game 1 and 8-0 in Game 2.

 

Kuper hurled the perfect game in Game 2 retiring all 15 batters in order while striking out two. It is the first perfect game in SDC history.

 

With the sweep the Hawks start off the season 2-0 for the second time in a row. In their first year as a program last year, they swept Embry Riddle (Ariz.) in the first ever games. UAV falls to 0-2 on the season.

 

In Game 1 scoring was at a premium early on, as the first runs weren't scored until the fourth inning when Ruby Barroso hit a 2-run homer off SDC starter Josie Tucker.

 

The Hawks answered in the bottom of the fifth with seven runs to take a 7-2 lead. With the bases loaded and no outs, Morgan Wheeler reached on an error by the shortstop to bring home Hannah Romanski from third. Savanna Baggett then singled to right field and plated Krystal Hoham. Hoham ended the scoring in the inning with a 2 RBI single to right.

 

A quick top of the sixth led to three more runs in the bottom half of the inning. Baggett started things with a double. Morgan Mcgee brought the eighth run home for the Hawks scoring Jazmine Hamme. Romanski's single brought the last two runners home to end the game courtesy of the run-rule, winning 10-2 in six innings.

 

SDC pounded 13 hits en route to their 10 runs. Tucker earned the win throwing all six innings. She finished with six hits allowed, two earned runs and five strikeouts.

 

The Hawks began Game 2 how they left off in Game 1 as Romanski delivered a 2-run homer to left field in the bottom of the first for a 2-0 lead. SDC added another in the bottom of the second via a Tiffany Fox single up the middle scoring Wheeler.

 

Samantha Campos doubled to left in the third to score two more runners increasing the Hawks lead to 5-0. SDC added two more runs in the bottom of the fourth. The Hawks won on a single from Ariel Rasmusson for the 8-0 victory and give Kuper the perfect game.

 

Romanski ended the day going 4-for-6 with 3 RBI, three runs, and a homer. Mcgee also went 4-for-6. Hoham knocked in 3 RBI with two hits.

 

The Hawks will travel to Cal Lutheran on Saturday for a double-header starting at noon.
