GALVA - The Galva-Holstein softball team won for the 10th time in their last 12 games by defeating Storm Lake St. Mary's 7-1 in non-conference action at Galva on June 16th.

Jaime Christensen pitched seven strong innings in pitching a no-hitter for G-H. The sophomore gave up one unearned run, as she had 11 strikeouts and walked no one.

Leading the way at the plate for Galva-Holstein were Heather Joslin, who went 2-4 with a double and four RBI; twin sister Lindsey Joslin, 3-4 with an RBI and two runs scored; Brea Slaybaugh, 2-4 with two runs scored and two stolen bases; and Kara Slaybaugh, who was 2-4, drove in a run, and scored twice.

Galva-Holstein coach Scott Phelps was pleased with the victory, as his team improved to 12-7 overall. "We were happy with the strong pitching we got from Jaime,and the fact that seven of our nine hitters collected hits tonight," said the veteran mentor. "After the first inning, our defense made the plays when they had to."
