Amanda Freed

Perfect games aren't anything new to Freed. She had three heading into the first round of the Southern Section Division III playoffs. But she struck out 15 to pitch her fourth perfect game and seventh no-hitter, a 1-0 victory over Valencia. She also drove in the game's only run, walking with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh.
