DePaul's Adix Throws First Career No-Hitter

CHICAGO – Junior Tracie Adix threw her first career no-hitter and helped the DePaul softball team to a 8-0, five inning victory over visiting Loyola-Chicago, Tuesday at Cacciatore Stadium.

Adix's no-hitter and sixth win of the season was a walk shy of a perfect game. The junior's struck out four with her only base runner aboard in the second inning.

The Blue Demon bats scattered eight hits. Sophomore Sandy Vojik had a perfect day at the plate and tallied three singles; while freshman Jackie Tarulli-Fisher and sophomore Marcy Wilus each registered a pair of hits. Tarulli-Fisher also led the DePaul with three RBI.

DePaul (20-14) added single runs in the first and third innings, but a six-run fourth pushed the Blue Demons to victory.

Junior Linda Secka blasted a two-run home run to ignite the Blue Demon bats in the fourth. Following the home run, senior Sara Polensky singled to the left side and junior Jessica Evans was walked by Loyola's second pitcher of the day, Laura DeLeon.

Wilus notched a RBI single on a shot to right field. One batter and a pitching change later, Tarulli-Fisher smashed a base clearing double to give the Blue Demons 6-0 lead.

The final two runs of the ball game crossed the plate on a Loyola error and a DePaul double steal.

Krista Cosson (5-19) took the loss for the Ramblers. She threw the first three innings and gave up three runs on four hits. DeLeon and Katie Schupbach combined for the final inning and surrendered five hits and five runs.

Loyola-Chicago falls to 11-33 on the season.

The Blue Demons will return to the diamond on Thursday and take on city rival Illinois-Chicago at 4:00 p.m. in Lincoln Park.
