The No. 4 ranked Humboldt softball team closed out its regular season in impressive fashion Monday night at home by shutting out the Spencer Tigers in three innings, 13-0. Humboldt jumped on the Tigers for nine runs in the first inning en route to their 28th victory over the season with just four losses. Ellie Jacobson pitched a no-hitter for the Wildcats, who hammered the Tigers for 13 hits and had no errors. Carlie Thompson made three hits to lead Humboldt, which also got home runs from Taylor Gidel and Jacobson.

Humboldt begins post-season tournament play at home on Wednesday night when they face Gilbert in a 7 p.m. contest. The winner will play Friday night against Roland-Story or South Hardin in Humboldt.
