Hannah-Rose Peters has been Santa Monica High’s primary softball pitcher this season. Now she has company.
Sophomore Alyson Herman pitched her first no-hitter last week, a five-inning gem in an Ocean League 10-0 victory over Morningside.
It came after Peters pitched a one-hitter in a 17-0 victory over the same team. Both games were shortened to five innings by the mercy rule, where a game ends if a team is 10 runs ahead after five innings.
Samohi is 12-3 overall and 3-0 in the league. During the current spring break the Vikings will play in the El Segundo Tournament.
Peters has an 8-2 record and Herman is 3-1.
All-CIF catcher Christine Foley is leading the team in batting at .439. Peters is second with a .438 average and Herman is third at .393.
Santa Monica is the defending league champion.
