Sleith no-hits Indiana
Yough senior Nicole Sleith had a hard act to follow coming off back-to-back one-hitters.
It didn’t turn out to be a problem for one of the WPIAL’s top pitchers.
Sleith tossed a no-hitter with 16 strikeouts and no walks in the unbeaten Lady Cougars’ 6-0 Class AAA Section 4 win over visiting Indiana.
The no-hitter was the 11th for Sleith, the school’s all-time winningest pitcher with 47. It was her 35th shutout.
Sleith has 67 strikeouts in 28 innings this season and has allowed only one run.
Yough (4-0, 3-0), which was limited to five hits by Hannah Harley, did all the scoring in the fifth inning.
Shyanne Sanders’ two-run homer opened the scoring with Karlie Tomich adding an RBI double.
Yough is scheduled at Uniontown Monday.
