Ark.-Monticello beats West Florida
Jackson tosses first no-hitter of the season
The shutout win also becomes Jackson’s seventh time to hold her opponent to zero runs this season and 29th of her career. She improves to 16-5 this year, while UAM improves to 29-9 overall and 9-8 in the GSC. West Florida drops to 19-15 overall and 8-10 in the GSC.
UAM first reached the scoreboard in the top of the second inning on a triple by senior Sarah Hayslip, who then scored on a throwing error by the UWF third baseman.
The Cotton Blossoms capitalized on another UWF error in the fourth to score their final run. Junior Jennifer Hickman started the inning with a single to center field then went all the way around the bases on a Faith Lund single, which was mishandled by the UWF right-fielder.
