Harrington Pitches Second Career Perfect Game

Most pitchers are lucky to have a perfect game once in their career.

UT Tyler's Kelsey Harrington is not lucky. She's got skill and for that reason  Kelsey picked up the second perfect game of her career Monday night.

It came in a 8-0 shutout of LeTourneau. A perfect game means no walks, no hits, no wild pitches. 

Kelsey's achievement was the first in Patriot softball history. Kelsey had her first perfect game as a sophomore at Texas High.

Anyone who loves softball or baseball knows the superstition, you don't talk about a perfect game, during the game. Monday night, the Patriots were no different.

"I was very much aware of it going into the fifth knowing that I just had three more outs to go," Kelsey said. "It was kind of one of those things that everybody in the dugout knew it was coming. Everybody on the field knew, but nobody wanted to say anything."

"Even our trainer she kind of walked up and was like am I supposed to say anything. It was just kind of one of those things that you know you don't talk about but everybody knows what's going on."

Kelsey and the top ranked Patriots take on second ranked Louisiana College tomorrow.

    Red Zone Rundown: Lufkin looks to get past first round playoff hurdle

    Jackson is back for Lufkin.Jackson is back for Lufkin.

    Like Longview, Lufkin is always talented. Before the Panthers begin District 12-6A action, they'll play a loaded East Texas schedule featuring the Lobos in week 1, followed by Nacogdoches and John Tyler. Normally a 7 and 4 campaign would be considered a success, but not in Panther nation. In fact, despite making the playoffs every year, Lufkin hasn't advanced past the first round since 2012.

    Our Red Zone Rundown continues with the other two Class 6A programs in East Texas. In District 11-6A with John Tyler and Tyler Lee, who we featured Monday night, Longview figures to challenge for the league title in 2017. In fact, the Lobos and Lions shared the district championship a year ago. It's no secret, Longview is used to winning and it does so by running the football and playing sound defense.
