Sydney Littlejohn (a University of Alabama signee) pitched a perfect game in her team's 4-0 win over Richland on Friday.
Rusk also picked up wins over Magnolia (7-3), San Antonio Holmes (5-0) and Bryan (8-6).
The Lady Eagles' loss came to Schertz Clemens (3-0) and to the Lady Deer of Deer Park (5-0).
