Sydny Howell had a pretty good birthday on Tuesday.
Howell tossed a seven inning no-hitter, striking out 13 and walking two on her birthday to help the Conway softball team defeat West Florence 3-0.
“She was pretty dominant,” Tigers coach Mike Skipper said. “She threw a lot of strikes with her screwball and inside fastballs. She spots the ball very well and she kept them guessing all night.”
Seventh grader Neci Hemingway drove in DeAnna DeLuca and Madison Gore on a three-run home run in the first inning to propel Conway.
“Neci got the big hit,” Skipper said. “She came through with a long ball.”
