On the same day last week, a pair of University of Missouri–St. Louis pitching records were broken: one by softball freshman Hannah Perryman (pictured), the other by baseball senior Kyle Renaud.

The UMSL Tritons softball team closed out the regular season last week by claiming its second regular season Great Lakes Valley Conference title in the last three years as the UMSL Tritons swept past Rockhurst Univeristy (Kansas City, Mo.), winning 7-4 and 11-6. Freshman Hannah Perryman recorded 20 strikeouts on the day to set a new single season record, pushing her total to 299. That betters the 298 tallied by Ally DeFosset in 2009. With the wins against Rockhurst, the Tritons improved to 35-11 on the season with the victories, the program’s third most wins.

On the same day that Perryman set a new softball strikeout record, senior Kyle Renaud recorded two saves for the UMSL baseball team in a doubleheader against the University of Illinois Springfield. With the first save, Renaud’s 11th on the season, he tied the single-season school record in that category. He set a new record of 12 saves after saving the nightcap.

Renaud has since earned three more saves, pushing his season total to 15. He now has 16 career saves, moving him into second place on the career charts.
