Prep Softball: Valdivia tosses no-no in Kingman’s win at Parker
KINGMAN – It was a special Wednesday for Kingman High’s Lilianna Valdivia.
The sophomore pitcher tossed a no-hitter with five strikeouts and two walks to help propel the Kingman High School softball team to a 14-0 shutout at Parker in five innings due to the run rule.
“I’m very proud of the girls,” said Lady Bulldogs head coach Craig Lee. “Our defense showed up and we got our bats going again. Our bats had went cold for a few games, but after the last two games I think we’re seeing the ball well again.”
Anastasia Tanner led the way with a 3-for-4 performance, highlighted by two RBI and a run scored. Arianna McKowan added two hits and drove in two runs, while Cassidy Hobbs went 2-for-3 with a RBI.
No. 18 ranked Kingman (7-4, 4-2 3A West Region) is back on the road at 3:45 p.m. Friday against top ranked River Valley (10-0, 5-0).
