After these results, Scurry-Rosser ‘s record stands at 8-10 overall and 2-6 in District 18-3A play.
For Blooming Grove, starting pitcher Ava Eldridge was the star of this game as she threw a five-inning no hitter while striking out eight and walking none. The only two base runners that Eldridge allowed in this game came were two Wildcats who were at bat, then got hit by the pitcher.
