Bauer, unbeaten Sutter UHS advance to SJS D-V Final Four: Sutter extends win streak to four-year high 25 games

May 15—Olivia Bauer opened her final postseason as a member of the Sutter Union High softball team with a five-inning no-hitter Tuesday to help the top-seeded Huskies blank No. 8 West Campus, out of Sacramento, 10-0 for their 25th straight win this season — the longest team streak in the past four years.

Bauer struck out 11 and walked one, while the offense put up nine through three innings before adding one more in the fourth to ignite the run-rule — Sutter's 17th win by 10 or more runs.

Up next is a trip to the Sac-Joaquin Section Division V Final Four where Sutter (25-0) hosts No. 4 Woodland Christian (18-4) at 4 p.m. today (Thursday). Sutter is 3-0 in the MaxPreps era against WC, including a 16-0 win in last year's section playoffs. In the 2023 playoffs, Bauer, headed for Boise State in the fall, was again the catalyst in the circle with 2-hit complete-game shutout with 11 strikeouts while collecting four hits and four RBI at the plate. Alexa Carino, a junior at the time and bound for Sac State, blasted two home runs against the Cardinals with six RBI.
