Strong pitching, timely hits and solid fielding contributed to an impressive two game sweep, as Del Norte High trounced McKinleyville on the road on Saturday.

The two victories, by scores of 9-0 and 18-1, improves the Warriors to 15-2 for the year and 5-1 in the conference.

The only other one-loss team in the Big 5 is Eureka, which is set to play in Crescent City Wednesday afternoon, weather permitting.

Del Norte will play on Friday in a doubleheader against Arcata. Originally, the games were set for Saturday, but were moved so members of the team will have time to prepare for the prom Saturday evening.

In the first game, sophomore pitcher Alyssa Bergquist continued her dominating season by throwing a one-hitter with 15 strikeouts. She carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning.

"It was really exciting," Bergquist said. "I was just in a zone." She said she tried to remain calm and not think too much about it, which she said helped her throw a good game.

Head coach Jackie Heuberger said even when the other team made contact, they could not get any hits good enough for a single.

"She just threw really well," Heuberger said.

In the first game, Tasheena Natt went 3-for-4 with three runs batted in. McKinnze Holden went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a walk.

In the second game, Holden continued the Warriors dominating pitching, throwing seven strikeouts and giving up only three hits in the 18-1 trouncing of the Panthers.

She also went 4-for-4 with three RBIs. Michelle Stacey continued her strong hitting for the season, going 3-for 4 with three RBIs.

Katie Rinkevicz went 2-for-2 with two RBIs. Jackie Engelsma went 2-for-3 with a single, a triple and an RBI.

Heuberger was pleased with the lack of outfielding errors, which has been a problem at times this year.

There were no errors in the first game, and only three in the second game.

time for the girls "to step it up now if we want to win league," Heuberger said.
