HAMPTON—Freshman Ryland Edwards recently threw a one-hitter as the Apprentice School swept Fulton-Montgomery CC 10-0 at War Memorial Stadium.

That was the fewest hits allowed in a game since May 12, 2010, when Tim Kehoe threw a no-hitter against Penn State-Greater Allegheny in the U.S. Collegiate Athletic Association National Championship.

Edwards, a 2011 Southampton High School graduate and electrician apprentice, threw 74 pitches in the seven-inning game stopped by the 10-run rule. He gave up a two-out single that was just out of the reach of three Builders trying to preserve the no-hit attempt. Edwards forced a groundout to end the contest as he struck out five and walked one to raise his record to 2-2.

This season, he has pitched 23 innings, gotten 5.48 strikeouts per game and has a 3.52 earned run average.
