SFIS PITCHER THROWS 1ST PERFECT GAME IN PROGRAM HISTORY
Santa Fe Indian School junior Shade Phae Young threw a perfect game against Raton on Tuesday. Young was the winning pitcher in a 15-0 shutout in game one of a doubleheader with the Tigers. Phae Young racked up 10 strikeouts in the 12 batters she faced.
“She’s one of the best pitchers out there, regardless of class,” said head coach Oliver Torres.
It was the first perfect game in school history. “It meant a lot to our program and team,” said Torres.
It was an eventful 72 hours for the SFIS team captain. Just a couple days before throwing her perfect game, Phae Young won the teen division of the 32nd Annual World Championship Hoop Dancing Contest in Phoenix.
Santa Fe Indian School (8-4, 2-0) will face Taos in a doubleheader on Thursday.
