UMSL Tritons weekly rewind

Diogo Dias GLVC champion February 2016

UMSL freshman Diogo Dias’ winning time of 49.33 in the 100-yard backstroke just beat Drury’s Ramiro Olivares, who touched second in 49.40 during the Feb. 12 GLVC Championships.

No. 7-ranked University of Missouri–St. Louis went 6-0 last week, shutting out all six opponents it faced. The Tritons took a doubleheader from Christian Brothers last Tuesday before winning four games at the 8-State Classic in Bentonville, Ark., Friday and Saturday. Senior Hannah Perryman was 5-0 in the circle, surrendering just seven hits in 33 innings of work, while striking out 64. She tossed her 12th career no-hitter in Saturday’s game one against Southeastern Oklahoma, moving into a tie for fourth place on the NCAA Division II career charts for that category. Perryman followed up that performance with a one-hitter against Northwestern Oklahoma, throwing 18 strikeouts, tying the third best seven-inning single game performance in DII history. Offensively, junior Sara Kern batted .500, recording 11 hits, including four homeruns, and added 10 RBIs and seven runs scored. The Tritons (10-0) are idle until six games in Clermont, Fla., from Feb. 27 to March 2.
