Rebecca Holmes was in the circle for North Collins and tossed a complete game for the Lady Eagles. Holmes struck out seven and only allowed one earned run over seven hits.

“It’s quite a turnaround,” said North Collins head coach Jan Warren. “We hit the ball a lot and put it in play. When they do what they’re supposed to do, they can play pretty well.”
