Jordan Weaver throws a no-hitter as Pioneers defeat Comets 3-0

Coming into Wednesday’s game, the Lady Pioneers' softball team knew Penn Manor’s Brittany Hook would challenge their offense. A battle between two of the best pitchers in the entire Lancaster-Lebanon League, Jordan Weaver and Hook led their teams with two phenomenal outings.

In Weaver’s best performance of the young season, she threw a no hitter and struck out 19 on the day allowing only two balls be hit into play off of the Comets' sticks.

Bri Garber began the offensive push in the bottom of the first by beating the throw to first on a slap to the shortstop. The team was able to place enough runners to load the bases, but failed to capitalize on the inning.

With the score still tied Weaver led off the fourth inning when she was hit by an inside pitch. Advancing to second on a sacrifice bunt, Weaver then scored on Caroline Braungard’s single to center. The Pioneers carried a 1-0 lead into the bottom of the fifth when Kate Rohrer’s triple down the right field line and Hanna Garber’s single manufactured two more runs for the Pioneers.

With a strong start to the season, Weaver notes that the Pioneers have many more challenges yet to be faced.

“All we can do at this point is take it one game at a time,” she says.

The Pioneers look for back to back wins today as they travel to Ephrata and take on the Mountaineers.
