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.
