5A softball: Oglevie throws perfect game for Sickles

Class 5A

Gryphons' Oglevie nabs perfect game

Supported by a sparkling defensive effort, senior Chelsea Oglevie tossed the first perfect game of her prep career Tuesday, lifting Sickles to an eight-inning, 1-0 triumph at Venice.

Sickles (23-5) snagged an unearned run in the top of the eighth when Courtney Goff scored from third on an infield grounder to beat shortstop Kelly Ott's throw home. An error, single by Danielle Rowe and Oglevie's sacrifice bunt preceded the run.

The Gryphons, who face Gaither a fourth time in Friday's region semis, left nine base runners stranded prior to converting. Oglevie, who hadn't pitched a perfect game since age 10, watched her defense convert 23 chances.

"It was all fielding," said coach Phil Giarrizzo, whose team fell to Gaither 4-0 in last week's district final. "Our defense couldn't have played a better game."
