Purvis pitches her way to perfection

Randall Hampton

The performance put on by junior pitcher Sara Purvis in the Georgia Southern University softball team’s 1-0 victory over Southern Illinois University could only be described with one word: perfection.

Purvis tossed the first perfect game in GSU history in dominating fashion. She struck out 11 hitters to continue her unprecedented start to the season.

Purvis dominated from the outset striking out the first two batters she faced. Both hitters watched as Purvis simply over powered them with her fastball.

The first perfect game in GSU softball history came on the heels of Purvis being named Southern Conference Pitcher of the Week.

Her confidence is through the roof and the entire SoCon was just put on notice.
