Truckee softball: Fernley allows just two hits in doubleheader sweep
April 27, 2009
The Wolverines dropped both ends of their doubleheader at Fernley on Saturday by scores of 12-0 and 11-0.

After a two-hour delay before Game 1 due to wet field conditions, Truckee got off to a tough start as each batter struck out the first time through the lineup.
Stacy Brenes ultimately broke up the no-hitter with a single in the fourth, but that’s all the Wolverines would get.
Truckee pitcher Rachel Zissimos went four innings, yielding 13 hits and two walks while striking out two.
Game 2 picked up where the first game left off.
