Backed by home runs from Dani Nordyk in the first inning and Jenna DiLorenzo in the third, Amity High junior lefthander Katie Koshes struck out 15 and took a no-hitter into the seventh inning on Saturday night, as the No. 5 seed Spartans defeated No. 2 Lauralton Hall, 3-0, to win the Southern Connecticut Conference softball playoff title at West Haven’s Frank Biondi Field.
“Katie’s a big-game pitcher,” said Amity head coach Loren Purcell. “She likes to get the ball in situations like this.”
