Clear Creek’s pitcher Megan Lee threw a no-hitter, as the Wildcats defeated the Clear Brook Wolverines, 5-1, on Tuesday at Clear Creek High School.

Lee walked six batters Tuesday, but also had 13 strikeouts and pitched a complete game.
The Wildcats scored two runs in the first inning. Jessica Skladal reached home on a passed ball after she got on base due to a walk by the Wolverines’ Jade Dickens.

“All preseason we have left runners on base,” said Cash. “In this district you want to get the lead early because every team in this district is good and that was huge for us tonight.”
The Wildcats added three more runs in the third inning. Ramber had a two-run single, but was thrown out at second. The next batter, Petrella, hit a moonshot over the left field wall.
The Wolverines were able to get one run in the fifth inning. Lee walked four in the inning, which brought home a run. Lee struck out the Wolverines’ Persephanie Gallegos to end the inning with the bases loaded.
