Softball: Johnson leads Cougars to shut-out win over Centaurus
September 27, 2017
For Niwot senior Jaila Johnson, last Tuesday was memorable for at least two reasons: it was her 17th birthday and she threw her first career no-hitter.
Johnson faced just 10 batters in the Cougars’ rule-shortened 20-0 win over the Centaurus Warriors, striking out the last two batters she faced. At the plate, she extended her hitting streak to six games, going three-for-four with two doubles and three RBI. She now leads the Cougars with 29 hits and 20 RBI, and her team-best .644 average also leads the Northern League.
