Bentonville High 21, Springdale High 0
McKenzie Vaughan threw a no-hitter over five innings, and Bentonville belted six home runs as the Lady Tigers rolled past Springdale and gave coach Kent Early his 350th career coaching win.
The game was originally scheduled for today but moved to Monday because of the storms expected to hit the area.
Morgan Nelson had four hits and four RBIs and finished a triple short of the cycle, and her solo home run and Vaughan's three-run blast in the first inning helped Bentonville (17-6, 11-1) jump out to a 5-0 lead. Cailey Cochran added a solo shot in the third, while Emmy Carter hit two home runs and Emily Perry added another during a 12-run fifth.
Vaughan struck out seven of the first nine batters she faced and never had a ball leave the infield during a 56-pitch performance. Springdale's only baserunner reached on a Bentonville error.
Paris 7, Perryville 3
The Eagles locked down the conference title and No. 1 seed in the 3A-2 Regional Tournament as Sydney Ward and Jadyn Hart combined for 16 strikeouts.
Ward went 4.2 innings and allowed two hits with 10 strikeouts, and Hart went 2.1 innings and struck out six.
The duo also torched Perryville pitching as Ward was 3-for-3 with two doubles and five RBIs. Hart was 3-for-4 with a triple and double. Karsyn Tencleve and Lexy Lee also had two hits each for Paris (23-5).
