Softball Victim of Perfect Game

March 29, 1998

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Notre Dame's softball team was the victim of a perfect game for the first time in the 10-year history of the program as Rutgers' Juliette Brooks hurled the Lady Knights to a 5-0 perfect-game win over the Irish on Sunday in BIG EAST softball action. The win concluded the three game BIG EAST series after the teams split on Saturday. Notre Dame now stands at 12-16, 1-2 in the BIG EAST while Rutgers is now 9-5, 4-2 in BIG EAST games.

The Lady Knights scored two runs in the first and three in the second off Irish starter Jennifer Sharron who fell to 5-5 with the complete-game loss. She allowed seven hits, walked just one batter and allowed just three earned runs in a solid outing but was outdone by Brooks.

The junior from Ontario, Canada, who took the loss in Notre Dame's 5-4 win on Saturday, allowed just one ball to reach the outfield with a fly out to centerfield. The game also marks her second career shut out against the Irish. She allowed just five hits in a 7-0 Rutgers win over Notre Dame on April 27, 1997.
