Merilli Tosses Perfect Game

NYU-Poly Takes Two From Mount Saint Vincent

Sophomore Miranda Merilli

BROOKLYN, NY -  The NYU-Poly softball team won their games in a Skyline Conference matchup against Mount Saint Vincent on Saturday. But, the real story was sophomore pitcher Miranda Merilli (Altoona, PA), who pitched a perfect game in the second contest. She struck out 13 of the 15 batters, as NYU-Poly cruised to the 13-0 win in five innings.

The perfect game was the sophomore's second in her career. Last year she tossed a perfect game against Lehman College.

In game one, freshmen Brianna Feist (San Diego, CA) pitched a three-hitter as the Lady Jays tagged Mount for 11 hits en route to an 10-1 win in six innings. Feist struck out eight. Freshmen Megan Moran (Reno, NV) had a triple and drove in two to lead NYU-Poly. Freshmen Sadie Hoeschen (Huntington Beach, CA) was 3-for-3 with a double and two RBI.

Game two saw sophomore Shelby Bruns (Elko, NV) erupt for a 4-for-4 performance, including three doubles, three runs scored, and and RBI. Feist added a double and a triple for the Lady Jays.

The Jays improve to 7-9 overall and 3-1 in the conference.
