Freshman hurler Julia DiMartino struck out 17 batters and retired four others to register the first perfect game in her varsity career – a 3-0 victory over Spencerport as the regular season came to a close.

DiMartino took advantage of a great off-speed delivery to keep the Rangers batters off stride the entire game.

But the winner was far from determined until late as the teams remained tied 0-0 until Brockport scored three times in the fifth inning.

Taylor Zinkiewich reached and stole second base to begin the rally. After a sacrifice bunt by DiMartino to send Zinkiewich to third, Brianna Bunch also bunted and continued on to second base. The throw to second allowed Zinkiewich to score.

Shelby Perry followed with an RBI single to score Bunch and Perry later came across on a sacrifice bunt by Anna Fisher, an error and a wild pitch.

Spencerport pitcher Elaina Evinsky allowed just four hits as the Rangers dropped to 7-12.

Brockport finished the regular season 17-2 and were the top seed in Class AA as the Section V softball playoffs began. They beat 16-seed Irondequoit 8-0 in the quarterfinals while Spencerport dropped a 7-2 decision against second seed Penfield to end their season.
