HONOLULU  - The Red Foxes began the Chevron Hawai'i Spring Fling Tournament on Wednesday with a pair of matchups versus nationally ranked Texas A&M and Hawai'i. Marist had strong efforts in both games with Alyssa Zahka (Lexington, Mass.) reaching base in each games and pitchers Melanie White (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) and Emily Osterhaus (Suwanee, Ga.) throwing back-to-back complete games. The Red Foxes fell to #22 Texas A&M in the first game 5-0 and 6-0 to #18 Hawai'i in the second game of the evening.

#22 TEXAS A&M 5 - MARIST 0: Coming in with a 16-7 record and two Preseason All-Americans in senior Natalie Villarreal and junior Mel Dumezich on their squad, the Aggies posed a tough challenge for Marist in the first game of the Spring Fling Tournament.

After starting pitcher Melanie White shut down the Aggies with a three-up, three-down first inning, Texas A&M was able to manufacture some offense in the second inning. With three extra-base hits, the Aggies plated four runs to give them the early lead.

This scoring would be sufficient as A&M's Lindsay Sisk minimized Marist's offensive effectiveness throughout the rest of the ball game by allowing just three hits.

The Red Foxes' best scoring opportunity was in the fourth inning when senior Nicole DiVirgilio (Aston, Pa.) singled into right field for Marist first base hit. The next batter junior Sarah Carmody (Camarillo, Calif.) then advanced DiVirgilio to third with a single up the middle. Sisk had other plans for Marist and quickly extinguished the two-out rally with a strike out of the next batter.

Of note, Marist had runners on base in five of the seven innings.

An additional run in the fourth inning would give Texas A&M a 5-0 lead that would hold over throughout the remainder of the game.

In the circle, White went the full seven innings for her team-leading fifth complete game of the year. The freshman did an excellent job controlling the dangerous top of A&M's batting order. The 1,2,3,4 and 5 hitters combined to go 4-18 with four singles, no RBIs and four strike outs.

#18 HAWAI'I 6 - MARIST 0: The Red Foxes came into their nightcap of Day 1 action with revenge on their minds as just three day earlier the Rainbow Wahine pulled out a 4-0 win. Unfortunately, for Marist, Kaia Parnaby was in the circle again for Hawai'i and she was in no mood to see her third-lowest ERA (0.48) in the nation go anywhere, but down.

In one of the most dominate performances by a pitcher versus the Red Foxes in program-history; Parnaby earned a complete game, no-hitter victory by a score of 6-0. The junior left-hander retired 14 Red Fox batters via the strikeout on the way to the Rainbow Wahine's 22nd win of the season.

Though Parnaby was the story of the game, Marist was not without its fair share of highlights. Outstanding defense and pitching led the Red Foxes throughout the first half of the game. In the circle, Emily Osterhaus kept the Rainbow Wahine off-balanced and out of the hit column with three hitless innings. She was aided by stellar defensive plays in each of the first three innings.

Junior Christina Lausch (Lancaster, Pa.) and sophomore Haley Birnbaum (Lido Beach, N.Y.) hooked up for the first web gem nominee as the Lausch snagged a hard hit line drive at third base and quickly fired to Birnbaum at second base to double off the Rainbow Wahine's Kelly Majam and end the inning.

In the second inning, the duo of Osterhaus and DiVirgilio connected for the next defensive highlight. With the pressure on and runners on first and second, Osterhaus got Makani Duhaylonsod-Kaleimamahu to sharply ground out to her and in a close play at first, DiVirgilio received the ball in a full split, while hanging on to first base.

The third defensive gem, that helped keep Hawai'i off the scoreboard was a fly out to left field, that senior Ashley Corriss (Sayville, N.Y.) caught on a full sprint with her glove extended over her head.

Hawai'i did the majority of its offensive damage in the bottom of the fourth inning with a five-run two-out rally.

For the game, both senior Megan Lamoureux (Woonsocket, R.I.) and Alyssa Zahka reached base for the Red Foxes, with Lamoureux reaching via an error and Zahka a walk.

In the circle, Osterhaus went the complete game with seven hits allowed in six innings, while striking out three.

The Red Foxes will continue their action in the Chevron Spring Fling Tournament on Thursday evening with a 7:30 p.m. EST matchup versus  #6 Texas.
