Lady Tigers break the Broncs, 28-2
Tomlinson hurls four-inning no-no

KINGMAN - It looked like a game after one inning with the Kingman Academy softball team ahead, 3-1. But then the Lady Tigers exploded for 16 runs in the second to break the spirit of the Parker Broncs Tuesday in Parker, 28-2. Junior pitcher Kylie Tomlinson hurled a four-inning no-hitter to get the win. She walked only two, struck out eight and the two runs were unearned.

All that was without star catcher and senior Ashlea Tomlinson, who has signed to play with Yavapai College in Prescott next season. Freshman Tara Sherwood took over behind the plate and didn't commit an error or allow a passed ball. Offensively, Sherwood went 3-for-4 with three triples and five runs batted in to lead the Lady Tigers.

"I think the girls had more anxiety than I did about Ashlea being gone," said KAHS coach Amber Freed. "Tara did great behind the plate. She's a great athlete and adapts well."

Kingman Academy (4-0) belted out 19 hits in the game, including Sherwood's three triples. The Lady Tigers also had four doubles - two by Ashteyn Whirlow and one each from Kiersten Kinsey and Maddie McKowan.

Freed used the game to do some experimenting with Tomlinson absent. Kelly Harter played first base, Kinsey moved from second base to shortstop, and Abbie Boss got action at second base.

"Kelly is learning first base, which is a new position for her," Freed said. "Overall, it was a good game to make changes."

The Lady Tigers host Bourgade Catholic (0-1) in a Section 2 game at noon Saturday at Centennial Park.

The Golden Eagles are 7-3 overall - which includes tournament games - and could prove to be a real test for Kingman Academy.

"Because we are new to the AIA, we are playing every game as if we are the underdog," Freed said. "The strategy has worked so far, so we are going to stick with it."

The Lady Tigers follow up with Kingman at 3:45 p.m. Tuesday at Centennial Park.
