Claar one-hits former teammates
Exactly one year ago to the week, Kelly Claar struck out 15 batters and threw a no-hitter to help the Federal Way fastpitch team to a 10-0 win over Decatur.
On Monday, the two teams met again: Claar struck out 15 and nearly pulled off another no-hitter except this year she is playing for Decatur against Federal Way.
Claar, a junior who transferred to Decatur after last season, allowed just one hit and didnt walk anybody as the Gators beat Federal Way 8-0 and stayed in second place in the South Puget Sound League.
Decatur improved to 10-3 and keeps pace with first-place Jefferson, which is 10-0.
Federal Ways Megan Freshour was the only Eagle to manage a hit off Claar.
