Rose catches Tech’s no-hitter

SoVaNow.com / February 13, 2013
Former Halifax County High School softball standout Betty Rose played a supporting role in a breakout mound performance by Virginia Tech teammate Kelly Heinz this week.

Heinz, a freshman, won ACC softball pitcher of the week honors when she became the first Virginia Tech player in program history to throw a no-hitter in her first collegiate start. The native of Mechanicsville, struck out 11 batters and needed only 97 pitches in the six-inning game, tossing 64 for strikes against Southern Illinois.

Rose caught the no-hitter.

Rose has started five games and the Hokies are confident in her defensive ability behind the plate.

She is batting .250, with one run scored and four hits in 16 at-bats. She has one double and two RBI this season.

Rose has a .957 fielding percentage.

Tech (4-1) is back in action this weekend, playing at the Troy Subway Invitational in Troy, Ala.
