Euphoric state


Up in Queensbury, the girls had already won their title the day before, as Marissa Diescher recorded her second no-hitter of the state tourney. Following a 3-1 win over Hamilton, the Lady Wildcats (17-1) clawed Batavia Notre Dame 8-0 to win the second state title. Diescher finishes her career with 24 no-hitters, 1,167 strikeouts and an ERA below the 0.16 she entered the tourney with. At the state track meet, Liberty’s Jessica Dunnigan retained her state title among Division II schools with a win in the 200 in 25.02. Earlier in the day, Dunnigan won the silver in the 100 with a lifetime best time of 12.02. She finished 10th in the long jump with a leap of 16-1.25, nearly two feet shy of her state qualifying leap of 18-1.5.
