Nicoletti had one of her best pitching efforts of the season, limiting the Black Knights to five hits and striking out 11.
After its big win over Auburn on April 30, Cicero-North Syracuse returned to action Thursday, at Oswego, where Sydney O’Hara again proved strong in a 5-0 shutout of the Buccaneers.
Two days of rest helped O’Hara stay sharp, and she held Oswego to three hits, striking out 12. This more than made up for a rare quiet day at the plate, where O’Hara walked once and got a hit.
C-NS picked up all of its runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings. Lindsey Silfer and Jenna Tartaro each had three hits, while Morgan Phillips gained two hits and an RBI. Brittany Paul and Brooke Szabo also drove in runs.
