Twice As Nice: Guard, Lady Guard both win via no hitters

BULLARD — What's better than a no hitter? Two no-hitters!

The Brook Hill School opened up their respective district openers with a flare as both baseball and softball teams won with no-hitters for both Brook Hill pitchers. The softball gem by Taylor Schultz was a Brook Hill softball first.

The Guard, and pitcher Daniel Priddy ran away with the baseball game 15-0, while the softball Lady Guard took a 8-2 win.

Brook Hill baseball (11-4;1-0), will travel to Dallas to play First Baptist Academy on Thursday at 4:30 p.m. to continue TAPPS 3-3A play.

The Lady Guard (2-6; 1-0) will have an open date before playing again next against Sherman-Texas Christian School, on Tuesday at 4:30 p.m.

Baseball:  Brook Hill 15, Richardson- Canyon Creek 0

Lefthander, Daniel Priddy showed no pity, was one error short of a perfect game, but kept the Cougars bats silenced on the way to the 15-0, no-hit shutout over the Cougars.

Priddy sat down six batters on strikes, walked none, and the defense and bats did the rest.

Collin Mondrik was a perfect 4-for4 at the plate, with a triple, three runs scored and three RBI’s to lead the Brook Hill Guard to five-inning win.

Mondrik started off the on-sided affair as he ripped a two-RBI triple in the first inning to spot a 4-0 lead.

“I was just trying to stay back and be patient and wait for a good pitch,” said Mondrik after the game. “I have been trying to hit the ball where it is pitched and I was glad to be spreading the ball around.”

The lefty, Daniel Priddy took the win on the mound striking out six, and walking none in the no-hitter. One Brook Hill error allowed the only base-runner. The runner was erased on the next pitch, as Priddy used a pretty pick- off at first base to negate the lone Cougar threat.

“I just felt really good today and was concentrating on location mainly,” Priddy said after the mound gem. “My location was there, and the defense did a great job behind me to get the win.”

Logan Walters was 2-for-2 at the plate with three RBI’s and two runs scored in the win. Teammate, Blake Maddox was a solid 2-for-4 with two RBI’s and two runs scored.
