  • Early in the season, Girard junior Nick George no-hit Pittsburg for 5 1/3 innings and Southeast senior Aaron Lake blanked Cherryvale for 6 2/3 innings.
    On Monday night in a Crawford-Neosho-Cherokee League game between host Frontenac and Riverton, Blake Vail and Ross Edge combined for a no-hitter during a 7-0 win for the Raiders.
    In his six innings of work, Vail struck out 13 and walked one batter, throwing 54 strikes in 73 pitches (74 percent strikes). Edge faced six batters in his one inning — hurt by three walks — but Riverton could not make a dent in the runs and hits numbers on the scoreboard.
    Frontenac junior catcher Bryan Wade not only called a no-hit game, he went 2-for-3 at the plate with two singles and three RBI. Bryce Burdette, Brett Macary and Matt Standlee also drove in runs. Frontenac scored five of their runs in the third inning.
    In the other game, Frontenac won 10-3 as Frontenac accounted for 12 hits, Riverton fielders committed seven errors and Riverton pitchers walked five hitters in a more traditional early season contest.
    Austin Beckley led the Frontenac offense with two doubles and three RBI. Edge drove in two runs.
    Standlee earned the win, allowing no runs and striking out seven over his four innings of work.
    Frontenac (3-0) plays Girard (2-2) on Thursday.

    Pittsburg senior Andrew Joy returned to form after a subpar opening tournament last week and placed sixth with his round of 79.

    Tyler Busch of Grove (Okla.) won top individual honors by shooting 72.
    Colgan freshman Bailey Beykirch and senior Austin Barone made the top 10 — Beykirch tied for seventh with his 81 and Barone finished 10th with his 82.
