The Crimson Bears beat the Wolves 10-0 on Friday and Saturday to open defense of their state championship

"It's a great start for the girls," JDHS coach Dave Massey said. "I'm very happy, considering we haven't really been able to get outside yet."

JDHS junior Andrea Doerflinger pitched a no-hitter Friday as her team beat Sitka, the defending small-school state champs, 10-0 on Friday.

Doerflinger fanned 11 batters and walked three in the win.

Offensively, Hannah Barril led the Bears with a single, a double, three RBIs and two runs scored.

Sara Manning went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored. Sammy Roguska tripled and drove in a run, and Alycia Cox contributed an RBI in the win.

Annie Hegar, Ashliegh Wilwert, Torie Powers and Kayla Janelle all had base hits, and Doerflinger aided her own cause with a base hit and an RBI for the Crimson Bears.

On Saturday, Doerflinger struck out seven and yielded one hit in four innings as JDHS defeated Sitka 10-0 in six innings.

Katie Laliberte pitched the final two innings in relief, allowing one hit.

Cox led a balanced offensive attack with a 3-for-4 effort. She doubled, tripled and drove in two runs in the win.

Also for JDHS, Madison Massey went 2-for-3 with two RBIs. Powers singled, tripled and drove in two runs, and Doerflinger added two RBIs.

Laliberte also doubled in the win.

JDHS (2-0) will open a series with Colony on Friday at Melvin Park.
