HARDIN, Ill. -- No-hitters in baseball or softball don't happen often, but a pair of them by one school in single day is even more rare.

Calhoun High School from the southwestern Illinois town of Hardin pulled it off Thursday with a pair of no-hitters over Greenfield High School.

According to The Telegraph in Alton, The Calhoun Warriors baseball team blanked Greenfield 9-0. Pitcher Mitch Bick didn't give up a hit and struck out 18. He walked just one batter.

Pitcher Grace Baalman threw a no-hitter for the Warriors softball team in its 10-0 win over Greenfield.

Baalman came close to a perfect game. She struck out nine and didn't walk anyone. But one Greenfield batter reached base on an error.

Hardin is about 40 miles north of St. Louis.
