WATSONVILLE — The Monte Vista Christian High softball team was all smiles after moving back above .500 in nonleague play on Friday afternoon.

And they did it in front of their home fans.

In the first game of their own nonleague tournament, the Mustangs blanked St. Francis Central Coast Catholic 11-0.

With the win, Monte Vista Christian improved to 4-3 on the season while staying on the positive side of the tournament bracket.

Their win was highlighted by a couple of big offensive innings as well as a few slick defensive stops.

The Mustangs scored in the four innings they batted. Mara Arroyo scored in the first to give the home team a 1-0 lead.

In the second, Jessi Sternat, Brook Hiura and Kelli Graham all scored to give the Mustangs a 4-0 lead.

Sternat hit a double to start the inning. Hiura then walked. Graham singled in Sternat while Hiura took third base. Cisneros then singled in both Hiura and Graham.

The run support was more than enough for Whitney Cisneros, who pitched all five innings and got the shutout.

Cisneros allowed three hits and received a couple of stellar defensive stops. With two outs in the fourth, a screaming line drive looked to have a destination of left field. Instead, shortstop Hillary Guerrero dived to her right and caught the ball.
