GENOA, Ohio (WTVG) - Last Thursday marked a perfect start to Kaylin Shields sophomore campaign. The pitcher tossed a perfect game against Cardinal Stritch struck out 14 batters in the Comets 13-0 win over the Cardinals.

“I wasn’t really trying to think about it. I was trying to stay focus and continue to do my job. I was really focused on hitting my spots with my movement. Knowing after the game I did have the perfect game it was really exciting, because it was my first one so it was a really happy moment,” mentioned Shields.

For the sophomore, the milestone has served a motivation to add to her already impressed resume.

“I do want to break the doubles record this year and I’m trying to go for the hits record as well,” noted Shields.

Along with tossing a perfect game, Shields had a strong performance at the plate as she drove in six runs.

“She does a good job, we get a couple runners on base I’m confident with Kaylin and the few batting behind her as well. They’re coming together as a team and she ignites that,” said Head Coach Troy Susor.

Despite being sophomore, Shields serves as a leader for the Comets. A responsibility that also comes with high expectations.

“We just have to keep up the positivity, I have a feeling I’m going to have a good season, but it’s also going to help my team out in the end.”

It’s just the beginning for the Shields and what better way to start.
