Maxwell's Perry and Wells set national and state baseball marks

Maxwell High School is a Division V baseball school of 142 students, which is small by even Northern Section standards.

But the duo of seniors Steven Perry and Tyler Wells helped the Colusa County school put together a memorable 27-0 regular season.

Among the major team and individual records set or broken, according to Kevin Askeland of Maxpreps.com:

• Most no-hitters by a team in a season - Tied the national record of nine no-hitters set by Biloxi Notre Dame (Miss.) in 1961.

• Most shutouts by a team in a season - 16, which breaks the previous mark of 15 set by Fresno in 1958 and Fowler in 2001.

• Most runs in a career - Tyler Wells, 207, breaks the mark of 2003 set by Lowell of San Francisco's Charlie Cutler in 2005.

• Most consecutive Wins - Tyler Wells, 33, tied the mark set by Mike Pill of Edgewood of West Covina from 1975 to 1977.

• Most No-hitters in a Season - Steven Perry, 5, ties the mark set by Tony Ankerson of Mater Dei-Santa Ana in 1957.

Entering tonight's playoff game against Hayfork, these were the final regular season stats for Wells and Perry.

• Wells - 10-0, 0.00 ERA; 101 strikeouts in 51 innings; .639 batting average, 72 runs batted in, 13 home runs.

• Perry - 9-0, 0.00 ERA, 104 strikeouts in 48 innings; .537 average, 40 RBI, 4 HR.
