Prairie View 10, Riverdale 0

RAYVILLE — Rachel Hankins unfurled a five-hit shutout as the Prairie View Lady Spartans handled Riverdale 10-0 Saturday evening in the 10th annual Riverfield Tournament.

Prairie View (1-2) gave Hankins all the run support she would need in the bottom of the first.

Anna Grace White singled down the left field line and Chloe Halterman and Elle Morgan were hit by pitches to load the bases with nobody out. Hannah Billings followed with a sacrifice fly to center field and Kayla Hawthorne lashed a two-run triple to center. Hawthorne later scored on a wild pitch, bringing the score to 4-0.

Prairie View tacked on three more in the second and third frames.

Elle Morgan's two-run double highlighted the second as the Lady Spartans moved ahead 7-0.

Prairie View used a base hit by Emma Goss, four walks and two hit batsmen to wrap up the scoring in the fourth.

Hawthorne tripled, Morgan doubled and White and Goss singled for the Lady Spartans.

Hankins (1-0) struck out seven and walked one to gain the win in the four-inning contest.

Prairie View is home for two games next week vs. Riverdale on Monday and Union Christian on Tuesday. Starting time both days is 4:30 for the JV with the varsity to follow.
