ALTA - The Galva-Holstein softball team lost a 5-0 non-conference game to a good Alta team on a cool night May 28th.
Although Galva-Holstein's Jaime Christensen took the loss on the mound, she threw seven strong innings, giving up just four singles and walking no one, while striking out 10.
"The defense let us down in a couple of innings by booting the ball around," said veteran G-H coach Scott Phelps. " We put the ball in play at times, but we couldn't find the holes."
"I was disappointed with the errors," continued Phelps, "but was happy with the pitching. We believe if the kids will continue to work hard, the defense will come around."
The loss dropped the Lady Pirates' season mark to 2-3. They travel to Remsen tonight to take on Remsen-Union in a Maple Valley Conference contest.
