Sidney Shultz put on a dominating performance in the circle Thursday afternoon.

The senior pitched a no-hitter in a 15-1 victory over Tyrone, in a game that lasted six innings.

“She pitched well tonight,” BEA coach Don Lucas said. “Her changeup really was working well, her offspeed was her go-to pitch and she controlled the strike zone.”

Shultz faced 21 batters, struck out three, walked three and got a lot of help from catchers Morgan Nyman and Tobi Yarrison as well as the defense behind her. The only run allowed was unearned in the sixth inning in her first no-hitter of the season.

“She got a lot of ground balls,” Lucas said. “The outfield played well. She kept the ball in the zone and we did a good job backing her.”

The visiting Lady Eagles took control of the game with a 10-run sixth inning, with Shultz, Olivia Andrews, Mackenzie McCloskey and Skyler Woodward knocking in two runs apiece. Nyman, Andrews and Mikala Smith collected three hits each, with a double among Smith’s hits.

BEA (5-1) hosts State College on Friday.
