Columbus State pitcher Erin Tyson pitched a five-inning no-hitter in her college debut on Friday afternoon as CSU defeated Miles 8-0 at Cougar Field.
Tyson, a former Ledger-Enquirer All-West Alabama Softball selection at Central-Phenix City, was the first CSU pitcher to toss a no-hitter since Jennifer Isasi threw a perfect game on March 8, 2008 against Charleston. There have been 16 no-hitters in CSU softball history and three perfect games, according to the CSU athletic department.
Tyson walked two while striking out eight of the 18 batters she faced.
CSU (3-0) hosts Lynn at 5 p.m. tonight.
