LEXINGTON, Ky. – Junior lefty pitcher Meagan Prince threw her third no-hitter of the season on Tuesday afternoon, guiding the No. 12 Kentucky softball team to a shutout 9-0 win over the Northern Kentucky Norse. Prince becomes the first player in Kentucky history to throw three no-hitters in the same season. No pitcher had ever thrown more than one in a season coming into 2016.
Prince’s no-hitter is the fifth for UK pitching this season, which leads all teams in the Southeastern Conference. With the win, Prince moves her perfect record on the season to 12-0 in her 14 appearances in the circle. Her 12 wins leads the Kentucky staff, and now sports a new career-best 1.38 ERA this season.
