Gilbert's No-Hitter Leads Brevard To Grand Strand Title


April 24, 2017

The Brevard Lady Blue Devils made the most of their spring break, as the team traveled to Myrtle Beach, S.C. and captured the Grand Strand Classic title last week. It was the team's second Grand Strand championship in the past three years.

The beach is always a popular spot for spring break, but most don't return with a trophy to show for it.

For the second time in three years the Brevard Lady Blue Devils traveled to Myrtle Beach, S.C. and won three games in three days to capture the Grand Strand Classic title.

Brevard defeated Newark High School, of Newark, N.Y., 12-4 on Monday and beat Greenbrier East, of Lewisburg, W.V., 8-6 on Tuesday.

In the championship game, freshman pitcher Sydney Gilbert tossed the first no-hitter of her career as Brevard rolled past Sauquoit Valley, of Sauquiot, N.Y, by a final of 12-0.
