Adrian opened defense of its MIAA championship in convincing fashion on Friday March 25th with 9-3 and 8-0 wins over visiting Olivet. Adrian sophomore starting pitcher Tommy Parsons became part of school history in the second game of the doubleheader, throwing what's believed to be the program's second no-hitter ever. Parsons' no-hitter was completed in just 88 pitches, 62 went for strikes. He faced just two over the minimum 27 batters, issuing a walk to Jimmy Schoof who was the second batter of the contest. Parsons retired the next 19 men he faced before Stephen Botti reached on a throwing error in the seventh.

In game one of a SLIAC doubleheader, MacMurray's starting pitcher, Luke Jarvis, no-hit the Webster Gorloks for the seven inning contest on March 26th.  The closest Jarvis came to allowing a hit was in the seventh when Mike Golich laid down a one-out bunt that Jarvis fielded on his knees, but his throw pulled the first baseman off the bag for an error. The only other runner to reach base for Webster was Jeff Kammer when he was hit by a pitch in the first.

Marc Iseneker became the first pitcher at St. John Fisher to throw a no hitter since 2011, as the Cardinals downed host Elmira 9-0 on Saturday in the second game of a doubleheader.  The junior struck out 11 batters in the win and allowed just one batter to reach base – a lead-off walk in the second inning that was quickly erased by a double play.

Bryan Roberts tossed a seven-inning no hitter Wednesday afternoon in a 4-0 win at Wittenberg on April 13, 2016. Wabash swept the Tigers with an 8-6 victory in the series finale. Two Little Giant errors and a hit batsman prevented the perfect game for the righthander.

Felix Baez threw a no-hitter on Friday April 15, striking out 16 batters to lead Keystone to a 1-0 victory over Marywood in a CSAC game at Christy Mathewson Field.  The senior right-hander tossed the first no-hitter for the Giants since Blaine O'Brien held Penn State Behrend hitless on March 10, 2012 in Fort Pierce, Florida.

Lasell pitcher Daniel Petr pitched a no-hitter to lead the Lasers to the win in game one on Saturday April 16.

Freshman pitcher Ben Atkinson tossed a seven inning no-hitter on Saturday April 16th. Atkinson, making his fourth career start, had dominant stuff, but also had to battle through six walks and two hit batters. He finished with six strikeouts and improves to 2-1 on the season. It was the first no hitter for Fredonia since Angelo Sciandra and Zach Murray combined to shut out Skidmore on March 16, 2012 in Fort Myers, Fla.

Vince Santarsiero's no-hitter was the highlight of a sweep of Eureka on Saturday April 23. Santarsiero and the Griffins won 5-0 in the no-hitter opener with a 13-1 win in game two. Santarsiero's only struggle was in the second inning as he walked two but his defense backed him up with a double-play after the first one. The Florida native totaled seven strikeouts and two walks in the no-hitter.

Kalamazoo's Ryan Orr threw a no-hitter in a 2-0 win in the first game of a doubleheader at Olivet on Saturday April 23. Orr faced the minimum number of batters while throwing the fourth no-hitter in school history. The only Comet to reach base reached on a fielding error to lead off the bottom of the third inning. He was quickly wiped off the bases attempting to steal. Orr struck out a career high nine batters while getting eight ground outs and three fly outs.

Alma's Alex Valasek is having quite a string of games. With a no hitter over Olivet on Friday May 6, he has allowed just four hits over his last three starts. In the seven inning no-no, he walked two and struck out six. This is the third time Olivet has been no-hit this season by a MIAA rival.

Junior Richie Ferguson tossed the second nine-inning no-hitter in school history as the Kean blanked St. Joseph's College-Long Island, 5-0, in game one of a split doubleheader. Ferguson (7-4) pitched the minimum allowing just one walk along the way which was erased via a caught stealing early in the first inning.  He struck out six in the 88 pitch outing, his sixth complete game of the year.
