Delaney throws no-hitter for MU softball team

Sunday, March 15, 2009 | 6:56 p.m. CDT

Senior Stacy Delaney threw a complete game no-hitter for the Missouri women's softball team in an 8-0 victory over North Carolina on Sunday in the Coastal Carolina Tournament in Myrtle beach, S.C.

The No. 14 Tigers finished 4-0 at the tournament with the victory and pushes them to 23-3 this season.

Rhea Taylor and Ashley Fleming hit their third home runs of the season for Missouri, and Marla Schweisberger hit her third. Taylor's shot was good for three runs and gave the Tigers a 6-0 fourth-inning lead. Fleming and Schweisberger hit their home runs back-to-back in the fifth inning.

The no-hitter was Missouri's third of the season and the first for Delaney since her five-inning complete game shutout of Saint Louis on Feb. 27 in Columbia. Delaney (4-1) struck out six and walked one.

The Tigers are set to host Western Illinois in a doubleheader starting at 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Missouri is scheduled to open Big 12 Conference play at 2 p.m. Saturday at University Field.
