The no-hitters were the second and third in school history. The duo combined for 26 strikeouts — 14 by Gadient and 12 by Larson over 14 total innings. Gadient was only three batters away from throwing a perfect game with 2 errors and 1 walk stopping back-to-back perfect games.

bulletOF Shawn Herlihy, Colby-Sawyer College: Herlihy belted 5 home runs over six games during the past week with 9 runs scored and 11 RBIs. He became the first player in school history to hit 3 home runs in one game against Gordon College and missed a fourth by inches when a long drive hit the top of the fence.
