The Mustang softball team continued their dominance of the NCL II League with another 5 inning victory over league opponent Rincon Valley Christian. In winning 13-0, senior Hayley Olson pitched a no-hitter with no walks and 8 strikeouts. Olson also came through at the plate going 3×4 with 2 singles, a triple, and 3 RBIs. Other leading hitters for the Mustangs include McKenna Wilson-Kay 1×3 (2 RBI), Hannah Sarlatte 1×4 with a home run and 2 RBIs, and Kaitlyn DeLaMontanya 3×3 with a double. League record for St. Vincent is currently 9-0 with all of these games ending in five innings. In fact, the Mustangs have been so good since entering league play, that they have yet to allow a single run in those 9 games. Overall record stands at 10-7 with the next game slated for the end of the week vs. Potter Valley. Coming this Saturday should be a marquee game vs. St. Joseph of Alameda. This should be a good indicator of where the Mustangs will stand going into the NCS playoffs in two weeks.
The Varsity baseball team came out of their offensive slump by beating Calistoga 24-0 with 17 hits. Not only did the Mustangs come alive at the plate, but Calistoga committed 6 errors to aid St. Vincent to the win. Leading hitters included Tyler Sovig 3×4 (2 RBI), Chris Faulknor 3×3 (2 RBI), Ryan Lowry 2×5 (2 RBI), Dominic Pedersen 2×3 (3 RBI) and Chris Montoya 2×2 (2 RBI). The winning pitcher of record was senior Brandon Evans who tossed a two hitter. The Mustangs are currently 5-1 in league with 4 league games remaining. St. Vincent remains at the top of the league standings with Rincon Valley Christian as Tomales suffered a loss to Sonoma Academy on Friday. Due to rainouts/scheduling, the Mustangs have yet to play the Eagles this season. They are slated to play RVC at St. Vincent tomorrow and then next Tuesday at RVC. This will be the last home game for the Mustangs and the seniors will be honored before the game begins. In the meantime, a non-league contest will be played today vs. Marin Academy @ Albert’s Field in San Rafael @6:00.
