Bibler tosses no-hitter as Alta romps over M-NW

Thursday, June 28, 2007

Jessy Bibler fired a no-hitter, and Alta's softball team waxed Manson-Northwest Webster 6-0 Tuesday to pick up its 11th win of the season.

It was the second career no-no for the Cyclone sophomore standout pitcher, whose team improved to 11-7.

Pitching a complete seven-inning game, Bibler struck out 11 batters.

"Kelsie Peterson called a good game at catcher and Jessy Bibler hit her spots," said Cyclones first-year coach Dave Turnquist. "Kelsie had some good at-bats. The team had no errors, and they are playing with confidence."

Peterson led the Cyclones at the plate, going 2-for-3 with two runs scored, two RBIs and a triple.

Teammate Hannah Glienke went 2-for-2 and scored a run.

One night prior, on Monday, Alta handed the Storm Lake St. Mary's softball team an 8-2 loss Monday in Storm Lake.

Geneva Heschke led the Cyclones offensively, going 2-for-3 with a pair of runs, and teammate Toshia Jones went 1-for-2 with two runs.

The Panthers, who slipped to 4-11 overall and 3-6 in league play, got a pair of singles each from Robyn Bredvick and Annette Frank.

Becky Lenhart and Jess Lussman added one single apiece, and Rylee Paterson hit a triple.

Paterson took the pitching loss, giving up five hits to go with 12 walks and eight strikeouts.
