IONA STUNS #16 HAWAI'I

SARAH JACKSON STRIKES OUT 13


IONA 1
#16 HAWAI'I 0 (9)


This just in...

Sarah Jackson was masterful in shutting out #16 Hawai'i on their home field. She struck out 13 and scattered 4 hits against the 2010 World Series team.

The Gaels had only one hit themselves (Katie Jansson), off of Stephanie Ricketts, who also struck out 13.

Iona scored the only run of the game in the top of the 9th inning, with the international tiebreaker rule in effect. Eileen McCann bunted Erin Kyle from 2nd to 3rd base; then Erin scored on a passed ball. Sarah Jackson retired the side in the bottom of the 9th inning to complete the major upset.

The Gaels continue in Hawai'i tomorrow...well, today!, against Cleveland St.

I'm going to pay for staying up late for this one!

But it was worth it.
