April 17, 2024-- High School East pitcher Jack Mika (left) spun a gem against Central Regional High School on Monday, with 10 strikeouts to one walk and, most importantly, zero hits.

The no-hitter helped the Raiders secure a 6-0 win against their Shore rivals, moving the team up to fifth in the Asbury Park Press's latest Shore Conference rankings.

The southpaw senior's performance has drawn more attention to High School East's 7-0 start, which the Press hailed as "their most success since the heydays of the program under legendary former coach Bill Frank in the early 2000s."

Mika was able to celebrate his remarkable achievement with his current coaches (left) including head coach Keith Smicklo, and his teammates (below).

Congratulations, Jack, on your no-no, and to the HSE Raiders for their scorching hot start!
