Fillies one-hit Fulton

MORRISON, Ill. — A double by Jenna Jones was the lone hit for Fulton, and Morrison pitcher Brooke Stralow struck out 10 batters as Morrison shut out Fulton 10-0 in five innings in Three Rivers Conference softball Wednesday.

The Fillies ran their record to 11-1, 3-0 in conference play, as their offense produced eight hits.

Shannon Finneran had two hits and three runs batted in for Morrison, and Rachel Davis added a single, a triple and two RBIs. Jaeden Workman also had a pair of RBIs.

Morrison plays its third game in as many days today, facing Amboy at home.

EP wins on no-hitter

AMBOY, Ill. — Kylie Ackerman threw a six-inning no-hitter and went 3-for-3 at the plate to lead Erie/Prophetstown to an 11-0 win against Amboy on Wednesday in the Three Rivers Conference.

Ackerman struck out five batters and walked one batter. The Panthers also committed a pair of errors.

Karlee Doege held the Panthers (12-2, 4-0 conference) scoreless for the first three innings, but her luck ran out after that.

Emily Cox and Ackerman led off the fourth with back-to-back singles. Cox scored on a one-out double by Alicia Stout, and a second run scored on Lakin Miner's groundout.

Erie/Prophetstown added two more runs in the fifth, then broke it open with a seven-run sixth.

Addison Morse reached on an error to open the inning, and Kaeli Kovarik reached after laying down a sacrifice. Stephanie Thulen, who doubled in a run in the fifth, followed with a three-run home run. Morse capped the inning with a bases-clearing double.

  • Jones leaves UNO program

    Jalen Jones is done with basketball — for now, anyway.
    The 6-foot-5 Clinton High grad who had committed to play for Nebraska-Omaha, has left the program, and according to his Facebook page, has enrolled at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids.
    The enrollment office at the community college confirmed that Jones was registered for classes this fall at Kirkwood. Kirkwood coach Bryan Petersen, a Clinton High graduate, declined to comment and gave no indication that Jones would play basketball for the Eagles this winter.
    "College basketball isn't for everybody," Clinton coach Nick Lawrence said. "A little time away might do him some good."
    Jones came home to Clinton after spending just a few days with the Mavericks, and enrolled to Kirkwood shortly thereafter.
    Jones, the Herald's Player of the Year, averaged 19 points a game for the River Kings in his senior season and finished with the second-most rebounds with 160.
    He shot 41 percent on the floor and 28 percent from 3-point territory. He committed to Omaha before last season started in October.
