Pitching for seven innings, allowing zero walks, zero hits and shutting down batters with eight strikeouts, softball player Erin Caviness achieved what no pitcher at UNC had done in the NCAA Division I era. She pitched a perfect game. Caviness, a graduate student, was a force against the University of California, Santa Barbara. The team won the February 23 game 1-0. 

The Bears went on to once again sweep the Big Sky Conference Championship, both the regular season and tournament, crowning them as back-to-back champions. Perfect!
