Katie Monroe took over from there. The junior right-hander allowed one earned run on eight hits while striking out three to notch the complete-game win in the circle for Jeff.

DRAGONS ROLL IN OPENER

LOUISVILLE — Senior Megan Ekart tossed a four-inning no-hitter to lead Silver Creek to a 17-0 win at Pleasure Ridge Park on Monday evening.

Ekart had plenty of help from her offense as the Dragons pounded out 17 hits, including a trio of home runs, in their season-opener.

Sophomore Macy Ferrell had a pair of homers to lead Silver Creek, which tallied two runs in the first inning, three in the second, two in the third and eight in the fourth to end the game early. Classmate Izzy Sad hit the other long ball for the Dragons.

Hallie Foley and Reese Decker added two hits apiece for Creek (1-0), which is scheduled to host Trimble County (Ky.) at 5:30 p.m. Friday.
