Perfect Ending For Viking Seniors

It was Senior Night for the Woodbridge softball team May 20, an evening to honor the contributions of three upperclassmen who'd served on the Vikings' varsity.

All three of those seniors showed they weren't yet done contributing.

The Vikings wrapped up the regular season with a 10-0, five-inning toppling of traditional rival Gar-Field. Senior Ariana Aysanoa whacked three hits, stole two bases and drove in a pair of runs. Senior Allison Lott plated three RBIs on a couple hits while turning in a defensive gem, throwing out a would-be single from left field.

More than anyone, the night belonged to senior Aliyah Stone. The right-hander pitched the first perfect game of her life, sending down all 15 Indians she faced, nine via strikeout.

"I'd never pitched a perfect game before, ever in my life," said Stone, who tossed a non-perfect no-hitter two days earlier. "But it's the fact that it was Senior Night and everybody was up for it, I played like it was my last."

For good measure, Stone helped her cause offensively with two hits and a walk.

"All three of them, unbelievable," gushed Woodbridge's first-year head coach Steve Cadolino. "If you're going to go out on Senior Night, this is the way to do it. They all have a game to remember by."

Sophomore Molly Cowden chipped in with two hits and two RBIs, while Julia Sinnett collected three hits.

For Gar-Field, freshman Danica Spencer battled in the pitcher's circle. But it was Stone who shined.

The public address (PA) announcer boomed through the speakers around Woodbridge's softball field.

"Congratulations to Aliyah Stone," it blasted, "for pitching a perfect game on her Senior Night!"
