Maryland senior softball pitcher Trinity Schlotterbeck made history Friday, tossing a perfect game in the Terps’ 10-0 win over Texas A&M-Commerce.

It was the first perfect game for Maryland softball since 2013 and the seventh in school history. It was also the program’s first no-hitter since Brenna Nation did so on March 12, 2016.

Schlotterbeck was on point all game long, retiring all 15 hitters she faced and striking out eight. The win moved her record to 5-0, but she suffered her first loss Saturday against Minnesota. She’s thrown 35 innings in seven appearances this season, striking out 30 with an earned run average of 2.40.

The Terps have been putting together one of the best starts to a season in recent program history, currently ranked No. 21 in the country with a 10-4 record. Over the weekend, though, they went 2-3, beating Texas A&M-Commerce twice but falling to Baylor once and Minnesota twice.

Maryland will be at the East Carolina Tournament this upcoming weekend, slated to face both Saint Joseph’s and East Carolina twice and Monmouth once. The event will span March 3-5 and will be hosted by East Carolina in Greenville, North Carolina.
