Vinson went 3-0 in the circle and came five outs away from a no-hitter on Thursday. The freshman from Union, S.C., earned a win on Tuesday in 5-2 victory over Emmanuel, then held Southern Wesleyan without a hit for 5.1 innings before tossing her first complete-game shutout in Thursday's 6-0 win.  She limited Young Harris to one run on four hits with four strikeouts in 6.0 innings to give the Bearcats a sweep over the Mountain Lion.  Vinson has won each of her last four starts and now ranks fourth in the Peach Belt Conference in ERA.
