Hope Nelson was sharp from the rubber, and her teammates were having a slugfest around her.
Nelson fired a no-hitter on Monday, as visiting Johnson County blitzed Cloudland 14-0 in non-conference prep softball action. Nelson struck out eight, and only an error by herself in the fourth inning prevented a perfect outing.
The Lady Longhorns ripped 16 hits in the shortened five-inning affair. Jayme Jennings belted a three run homer and Nelson unleashed a two-run shot.
