St. Joseph Academy senior pitcher Maya Johnson was dominant in a 9-0 win over Huron April 3, striking out 16 and finishing with a no-hitter.

Senior pitcher Maya Johnson, a University of Pittsburgh commit, was nearly untouchable during the opening game of the St. Joseph Academy softball team’s doubleheader against visiting Huron at North Ridgeville’s Victory Park April 3.

The Jaguars (4-0) won 9-0, and Johnson fired a no-hitter. She struck out 16 in seven innings and didn’t walk a batter. She was denied the perfect game by hitting two batters. She also went 3-for-4 at the plate with 2 RBI.

Johnson’s day wasn’t done, however. She relieved Anna Erdos in the second game and threw 2 ⅓ no-hit innings to close out the Jaguars’ 3-0 win over the Tigers.

SJA has now won three games in a row via shutout. They’re scheduled to travel to Lakewood on Saturday for a doubleheader beginning at 11 a.m.
