North Vancouver's Izzy Dino throws no-hitter for University of Hawaii

North Vancouver’s Izzy Dino fired a six-inning no-hit shutout for the University of Hawaii softball team against Saint Mary’s College of California Saturday in the annual Hawaii Paradise Classic.

The freshman pitcher was making just her second collegiate start and was dominant for the Rainbow Wahine, allowing just two walks and no hits while striking out five in the 8-0 win. At one point in the game Dino retired nine straight batters.

It was the team’s first no-hitter since Stephanie Ricketts fired her final of six career no-hitters on April 29, 2012 against Fresno State.

Dino is in her first season of NCAA Div. 1 ball after graduating from West Vancouver Secondary. The 6-2 righty was one of 27 players who attended a Canadian junior women’s national team tryout camp in January. Players from that pool will be selected to play for Canada at the 2019 Junior Women’s World Championships scheduled for Aug. 11-17 in Irvine, Calif.
