Friday, March 29, 2019 | 12:14 AM

Alyssa Cappa was in the zone Thursday: the strike zone.

The Riverview junior tied the school record with 17 strikeouts in a 10-7 walkoff win over Valley in a nonsection game. Cappa pitched a complete game, giving up six hits and seven runs — a handful of which were unearned.

In 12 2/3 innings this season, Cappa has 26 strikeouts. She also hit a fourth-inning home run Thursday, her second of the season.

Mikaela Collins’ three-run homer in the bottom of the seventh inning gave Riverview (1-1) the walkoff win.
