The Charles Page High School fast pitch softball team (4-0) continued their undefeated start to the season and notched their third shutout Friday morning against Tahlequah (1-3). Freshman Nataley Crawford pitched a five-inning no-hitter with seven strikeouts and two walks in her varsity debut on the mound.

The Sandites previously beat Tahlequah 5-0 in their season opener on Monday, and repeated the feat in the first round of the Broken Arrow Invitational tournament.

Madison Lee singled and scored on a passed ball in the first inning. Jolee McNally hit an RBI single in the second to score Avery Tanner, but the Sandites stranded loaded bases as Sabrina Usher’s nine at-bat hitting streak came to an end.

Crawford struck out the side in the top of the third and sent two groundballs to first in the fourth inning. Felicity Horn hit an RBI triple and scored on a single from Lee, then Crawford singled in Lee for the final run of the game.

Sand Springs outhit Tahlequah 10-0 with no errors and only three strikeouts.
