Trojans fall in no-hitter at state

The Hillsboro Trojans softball team, most of whom have played together since they were 8 years old, came up empty-handed Monday against defending 3A softball champion Silver Lake, dropping the state title game, 5-0, in Manhattan.

Silver Lake pitcher Megan Deiter did almost all the damage on her own, striking out 19 Hillsboro batters on the way to her second no-hitter of the tournament. In three tournament games, she struck out 48 batters.

Hillsboro coach Stephanie Sinclair focused on her team’s 24-2 record, second only to Humboldt, whose only loss was inflicted by Silver Lake in a state semifinal game.

“It’s still a fantastic year for the girls,” Sinclair said. “Nobody’s going to be happy with second place, but when you get to say you’re second among all the 3A schools, that’s awesome.
