Peshtigo pitcher Grace Meyers fired a no-hitter in an 11-0 win over Sturgeon Bay on Monday.
Meyers struck out six batters, allowing seven walks on the day. No runner made it past third base however, preserving her shutout.
"No one was thinking no-hitter," coach Tom Christensen said. "She was not happy she gave up some walks, but I told her "you walked a bunch, but that's why you have all these other girls behind you to play defense,' and then realized after the game that the no-hitter was there, so we're happy for her, and [let's] keep it rolling."
On the offensive side of things, Peshtigo's bats were somewhat quiet until the fifth inning, when the Bulldogs ended things early with seven runs. Peshtigo did score a couple of early runs, which Christensen said was important.

Grace Wickman was 1-for-2 with two runs and McKenna Evancheck was 1-for-2 with two runs.
Karli Cahill had two RBIs. Mattie Lacoursiere ended the game early with a bases-clearing double in the fifth.
Wickman and LaCoursiere are two more players that Christensen mentioned as hitting the ball well lately.
The Peshtigo Bulldogs defeated the visiting Bonduel Bears Tuesday night 11-1.
The win came behind some amazing hitting from the lineup as well as superlative pitching from the circle where Grace Wickman showed off her dominance.
"It was a chance to get some players that don't get a lot of playing time out there, said Peshtigo Coach Tom Chriottensen. "I feel the girls stepped in and played one heck of a game. Everybody played and did well. Everybody that played contributed and give us some great performances. Pitching is working for us and the girls are just having fun right now."
Peshtigo got the boards blinking over the second inning with a strong five run showing. Karli Cahill walked to get the scoring run going with a walk. Gabby Blohowiak was hit by a pitch while Paige Dolota walked. Mattie Lacoursiere swatted a two RBI single while Dreya Detry hit a two RBI double. Grace Wickman made it a 5-0 game with an RBI single .

It gives her so much confidence and helps her relax knowing that her defense won't let her down."
Noellle Champagne took the loss for the Badgers allowing 14 hits, 13 runs (12 earned) and one walk while string out five.
