RCC’s Mirangelo Muller pitched a no-hitter and he struck out eight in the win over Rainy River and RCC pitcher Brandon Hodson picked up two wins as he pitched 12 total innings and allowed just one run.

“Our pitching has been absolutely outstanding all season long and this weekend was no different,” RCC head coach Scott Koenigs said. “Brandon’s a kid who throws strikes and he hits his spots. He gets a ton of ground balls.”
