Samantha Allen, Saint Rose softball pitcher

Golden Knights softball player Samantha Allen ’22 pitched her first college no-hitter at Saint Rose on March 28.

The first-year student from Latham, New York, learned she was pitching that day against Le Moyne. Beginner’s luck? We think not. The right-hander was subsequently chosen the Northeast-10 Conference Rookie of the Week.

Allen aspires to be a state trooper after graduation, so that explains her coolness under pressure. Check out our video with Allen, in which she and her catcher share what it feels like to achieve this dream of every pitcher.
