JOURNAL STAFF

Primrose Aholelei has had an amazing season for Bossier Parish Community College and Monday took on another milestone with the sophomore tossing a perfect game in a five-inning 12-0 win at Kilgore.

The Lady Cavaliers swept the doubleheader as Aholelei came on in game two to preserve a 2-run lead in an eventual 13-4 win.

In her perfect game, Aholelei retired all 15 batters she faced with five strikeouts and was also 2-for-3 at the plate.

BPCC had five hit batsmen in a 6-run second inning and Nicolette Blenker finished the scoring with a 2-run single.

Bossier Parish added five more runs in the fifth inning. Dylian Sanay had a 2-run double and Kennedy Cox a 2-run home run to give both three RBI in the game. Haylee Ladner was 1-for-1 with two RBI.

In the second game win, the Cavs had six more hit batsmen to give them 12 for the two games.

Ladner was 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI. Sanay had a single and home run and drove in two runs. Cox delivered two hits and two RBI and Blenker contributed a home run and two RBI.

Aholelei (26-2) got the win in the second game as well after she entered the game in the fourth inning with the Cavs leading 6-3. Kilgore had the bases loaded with no outs and Aholelei retired the next three batters, allowing just one run. She finished off the game working four innings, allowing two hits, walking one and striking out two.

BPCC responded by scoring three runs in the fifth and two in each the sixth and seventh innings to pull away.

Bossier Parish is now 38-10 overall and 20-2 in Region XIV and has a clear shot at winning 40 games in a season for the second year in a row and fifth time in the last six seasons. The Cavs were 20-7 in 2020 when the rest of the season was cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Lady Cavs will host Paris Junior College in a doubleheader Wednesday to close out region play and finish the regular season by hosting LSUE Friday.
