Valente Fires Perfect Game As Lady Presidents Roll

Although her teammates gave her plenty of offense to work with, it was not needed as this one was all Angie Valente.

The Black River junior-hurler fired a perfect game at West Rutland, mowing down every batter she faced in a 27-0, five-inning drubbing of the Lady Presidents over the Golden Horde.

Miss Valente's impressive numbers: five innings, no runs, no hits, no walks and six strike outs.

Coming into the game at 5-0, the three-time defending state champion Lady Presidents left no doubt about this one from the get-go, batting around the order in the bottom of the first inning and never looking back.

Coach Luigi Valente, who also happens to be Angie's father, told reporters after the game that it was the first perfect game thrown by a Lady President in his 17 seasons as their coach.

The offense was led by Katie O'Neil, Sam Norton and Sarah Hawkins, who each had two hits, while Katelyn Palmer had a big, two-run double in the onslaught.
