Lynden's Tanner Olson threw a no-hitter in a 14-0 Northwest Conference baseball win at Squalicum on Monday, April 1.
"He was a bulldog on the mound today, and he looked sharp from the beginning," Lynden coach Cory White said in a phone interview of Olson.
After surrendering a walk to the second hitter of the game and committing an error on a infield fly, Olson settled down and retired the final 19 hitters, including striking out the side in the bottom of the seventh. He finished with nine strikeouts while walking just one.
Olson got some help defensively, too. Ryan Mouat made an impressive running catch in left field, and Zach Vis snared a line-drive after timing his jump perfectly, White said.
If the no-hitter wasn't enough, Olson also went 3 for 4 at the plate with a double and an RBI. Mouat also chipped in with two hits and two RBI.
Lynden (7-1, 2-1) travels to River Ridge on Wednesday, April 3, while Squalicum (1-8, 0-2) goes to Friday Harbor on Tuesday, April 2.
