With a perfect game and a no-hitter under her belt, Maidenâ€™s Hannah Callahan has helped position the Lady Blue Devils for a successful season.
The junior pitcher is 5-1 this season, including a season-opening no-hitter against Lincolnton and a perfect game Tuesday against Newton-Conover.
Callahan said the two performances are a product of her hard work.
â€śMy pitching means a lot to me,â€ť Callahan said. â€ś I work on spins on my pitches, locations and different pitches. I work on my infield, too, because I struggle with that. I work hard at it so I can help my team out.â€ť
For the second time in three days, the Newton-Conover golf team won a non-conference match.
The Red Devils notched a 148 to win by 12 strokes over Maiden in a nine-hole match held at Catawba Country Club.
Newton-Conoverâ€™s Alex Hefner earned medalist, carding a 33 in his nine holes.
Teammate Lee Mitchell wasnâ€™t far behind on the scoreboard with a 35, while Chris Ziogas (39) and Perry Davis (41) also had solid rounds.
Bunker Hillâ€™s Tyler Lail and Maidenâ€™s Thomas Lilly finished tied for third with a 36.
Austin Shuford was the leading golfer for Bandys with a 52.
PITTSBURGH (AP) â€” Reserve forward James Southerland had 15 points and a season-high eight rebounds, and Syracuse avoided becoming the first No. 1 seed to lose to a 16 when it rallied for a 72-65 victory over North Carolina-Asheville on Thursday in the East Regional.
The Orange entered the tournament without starting center Fab Melo, who was declared ineligible for academic reasons, and they almost left early with a piece of history no team wants. Instead, Syracuse (32-2) will play eighth-seeded KansasÂ State in the third round Saturday.
