Emma Mazzarone  |  Providence Grove, softball

Mazzarone dominated in three games, notching the pitching victory in each of those games for Providence Grove. She was extremely productive at the plate as well.

It began in a 10-0 whipping of host Jordan-Matthews, when the left-handed pitcher struck out 14 batters for her second no-hitter in a row. She ripped two triples in that game.

In a 5-1 non-league victory against Chatham Central, Mazzarone fanned 17 from the circle. At the plate, she homered.

She capped the week with nine strikeouts in three perfect innings of a 15-0 pounding of visiting Trinity in a game shortened by the mercy rule. Mazzarone also contributed three runs batted in and a triple on offense in the Piedmont Athletic Conference game.

Through three weeks of the season, the Patriots held an 8-0 record, including a 3-0 PAC mark. They had notched six shutouts.
