FARGO, N.D. — UNO and pitcher Kamryn Meyer made a spectacular debut at the Summit League softball tournament Thursday afternoon.

Meyer threw a no-hitter as the second-seeded Mavericks picked up a 5-0 win over sixth-seeded North Dakota.

Meyer struck out eight and walked one — the walk came with two outs in the third inning. North Dakota had one other base runner reach on an error in the fifth, but UNO promptly turned a 5-4-3 double play to end the inning.

Meyer, who was a second-team All-Summit selection, is the first Maverick to throw a seven-inning no-hitter since 2011. It was her fifth shutout this season and second against North Dakota — she one-hit the Fighting Hawks in late March when she struck out 13.

Offensively, UNO got four singles in a two-run rally in the third inning. Emily Klosterman, who singled and scored in the third, delivered an RBI single to center in the fourth, scoring Lexi Burkhardt.

The Mavs secured the win in the sixth when Hailey Bartz brought home two with a single.

The bracket also opened up for the Mavs (19-26), who have won 12 of their past 16. Earlier Thursday, UMKC stunned top-seeded South Dakota State, which had won 25 of its previous 26 games. UNO will play UMKC at 1 p.m. Friday, with the winner advancing to the championship game.

UNO won three of four against the Kangaroos during their regular-season series two weeks ago.
