SALISBURY, NC - Five days ago, Fayetteville State's Misty Huber hurled the team's first no-hitter of the season.
Olivia Peavey got the second one in the very next Broncos' start.
Peavey, who was hung with a hard-luck 1-0 loss despite striking out 17 against St. Augustine's on Wednesday, returned to the rubber and mowed down the Livingstone Lady Blue Bears' lineup, working a no-hitter as Fayetteville State cruised to a 16-0 victory in the first game of a doubleheader on Monday.
Huber (Jr., Orlando, FL), who threw her first career no-no in the nightcap of last week's twinbill against St. Augustine's, picked up the victory after seven effective innings in the Lady Broncos' 10-3 win over Livingstone in Game 2 on Monday.
It is the first time in school history that the Broncos have hurled back-to-back no-hitters.
Peavey (So., Siler City, NC) allowed just one baserunner - Alexis Johnson drew a walk with one out in the fourth inning. Peavey (10-10) struck out 12 in just five innings of work and faced only one batter over the minimum.
The Lady Broncos (16-25, 9-4, 5-1), who struggled offensively shaking off the rust following an 11-day layoff last week, had little trouble with Livingstone (7-16, 2-15).
Maya Washington (Fr., Red Springs, NC) drove in four runs while Demarius Pankey (Sr. Laurinburg, NC) continued her resurgence with three hits and two runs driven in. Tiffany Locklear (Fr., Maxton, NC) and Jessica Randolph (Fr., Pinetops, NC) each had two hits and two RBI while LaTonia Gatling (Jr., Suffolk, VA) had a pair of hits and an RBI.
In all, Fayetteville State clubbed 12 hits and benefitted from six Livingstone errors, breaking the game wide open with 10 runs in the third inning.
The Lady Broncos kept up the pressure in the second game, taking a 7-3 lead through five innings. Huber (6-12) scattered five hits and gave up three runs - one earned - while fanning seven and walking none.
Lashanda Washington (Fr., Hope Mills, NC), Peavey, Locklear, Pankey, Ashley Wlezen (So., Charlotte, NC), Maya Washington and Clara Davis (Fr., Naples, Italy) each had runs driven in for the Lady Broncos.
