For the second time this spring a former Centre County athlete has thrown a perfect game for the Penn State-Altoona softball team.
Last month it was ex-Philipsburg-Osceola standout Kate Burge.
On Saturday it was Bellefonte graduate Raychel DeArmitt who threw the perfecto, this one in a 5-0 shutout against Medaille in the first game of a doubleheader. Coincidentally, Burge pitched a two-hitter to get the win in the second game.
DeArmitt struck out 10 batters in her gem and registered her 13th win of the season, tops in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference. She has three losses.
