Holy Spirit wins first AHSAA Title
By WVUA 23 Sports Reporter Drew Pavan
Holy Spirit Catholic High School softball team captured their first Alabama High School Athletic Association 1-A State Championship Saturday as they defeated the Skyline Vikings 3-1.
The Saints dominated this year’s state tournament, going a perfect 4-0.
The Saints capped off their 39th win this season behind a dominating performance from UAB commit Alyssa Faircloth, who has pitched three complete games this postseason.
“It was a tight game. But Alyssa had pitched so well for us,” said Holy Spirit head coach Jeff Lobenthal. ” She’s always been so strong for us. But it was tight, it was a 3-1 game, they’re a very good team, but the girls had really come together so I had felt at peace about it.”
