St. James pitcher Brooks Spiva scattered seven hits over the same number of innings, striking out three with only one walk to get the win. Crestwood’s lone run came in the sixth to break up the shutout.

St. James was led at the plate by Dominique Gross, who went 2-for-4 with three RBIs, two runs scored, a home run and a triple. The Lady Sharks managed only six hits but made them count.
