Caitlin Noble No-Hits Kansas

Feb. 26, 2005

CATHEDRAL CITY, Calif.-- Freshman pitcher Caitlin Noble tossed a no-hitter this evening to lead No. 12 Washington to the 4-0 victory over Kansas (6-7) at the Palm Springs Classic. It marked the first no-hitter of her career and the 22nd- ever no-hitter in Washington history. The last no-hitter thrown by UW was a 4-0 decision by Ashley Boek vs. Morehead State on March 22, 2003. Noble is just the third freshman in Husky history to throw a no-hitter.

The Huskies struck first, using a pair of two-out singles to score one run. Freshman Ashley Charters kicked off the rally with a bunt single and moved into scoring position with her 12th stolen base of the season. Sophomore Dominique Lastrapes then drove a single into centerfield to score Charters and give the UW the 1-0 lead.

Washington tacked on an insurance run in the fifth inning when Lastrapes hit a leadoff triple and scored on a bases loaded walk to pinch hitter Callie Bergan.

The Huskies added two more runs in the top of the seventh inning with a two-run home run by Sarah Hyatt. The homer marked the fourth of the season for Hyatt and her second in as many games. Hyatt's 23 career home runs rank seventh on the UW all-time list.

Noble (3-3) picked up her third shutout win of the season as she struck out eight and walked two.

Washington closes out tournament play Sunday with a 9 a.m. game vs. Oklahoma State.
