Tanner Holliman followed with five no-hit innings in a 10-0 win over Lindsay on Thursday, striking out six and walking three on 71 pitches.

Calyn Halvorson held Community Christian hitless in a five-inning 10-0 win Saturday, striking out five, walking one and hitting another on 65 pitches.

Class 3A No. 16 OCS enters Tuesday’s regular-season finale at Meeker with a 17-4 record.
