Richfield Springs softball prevails in double no-hitter

STAFF REPORT

Schenevus softball coach Rob Spranger saw something different Tuesday.

Spranger watched as Richfield Springs’ Kaity Richvalsky, and the Dragons tandem of Dani Tefft and Sarah Mellor threw no-hitters in the Indians’ 6-0 Tri-Valley League victory.

It marked the season-opener for both teams.

‘‘I have never been a part of a no-hitter by both teams,’’ Spranger said.

RS benefitted from seven walks in the first 2 2/3 innings en route to scoring four runs.

Richvalsky struck out 11 and walked three. She also walked twice, had two steals and scored two runs.

Schenevus will host Hancock today.
