Lady Spartan, Carol Forbes, pitched a perfect game Friday for the Spartans, facing 21 batters and striking out nine in a 4-0 victory over WAC foe, Louisiana Tech, in Monroe, La.

It was Forbes' first perfect game, and the senior right-hander became the only Spartan to record two no-hitters.

``Carol is a very good pitcher,'' San Jose State Coach Dee Dee Enabenter-Omidiji said. ``She has always given us a good effort, and the timing is right for everything to come together for her.''

Notable past:

San Jose State University pitcher Carol Forbes led the Spartans during the 2003 season with the most strikeouts in a game.

The record of 10 in a single game was set against Wright State University on March 25th.

Forbes led the Spartan pitchers during the 2003 season with a record of 19-15 and a 1.44 ERA.

This is not the first time that Forbes has performed like "nolan ryan". She threw her first career no-hitter against Menlo College on April 2nd, 2003.

Before settling on SJSU as her college of choice, she visited Texas Tech University, St. John's University, Arizona State University and the University of Arizona, as well as SJSU.

Forbes was quoted when she arrived at SJSU in regards to selecting SJSU as stating: "The coaches were nice, and I liked the girls. This felt right".

Congratulations to Carol Forbes and the Spartan womens softball team on the combined "perfect game" and earning a win over the lady bulldogs of LA Tech!
