WEST IREDELL PITCHER THROWS PERFECT GAME
STATESVILLE– A West Iredell High School pitcher fired a perfect game in baseball action on Tuesday.
Luke Elliott of West put his name in the NCHSAA record books with his performance, pitching a seven-inning 7-0 victory over Statesville.
Elliott struck out 10 while keeping any Greyhound batter from reaching base.
Although a perfect game is exceedingly rare, there have been over 50 documented and recorded in the NCHSAA record book.
Congratulations to Luke Elliott on his achievement and our thanks to Brian Meadows of the Statesville Record and Landmark for documenting the performance and informing the NCHSAA.
