RINGLING — Hope McLemore threw her fourth no-hit game of the season and her second in only four days, leading Ringling to a 10-0 win over Temple on Thursday.

It’s also the second time in four days McLemore’s been a part of a two-no hitter day in southern Oklahoma. In Wilson, Paige Reed kept Empire hitless in an 8-0 Wilson victory.

Shelby Gandy added to the offensive fireworks with a three-run home run in the second inning. Mary Jane Farris also tripled.

Christina Figueroa hit a double for Ardmore’s lone extra-base hit.

They scored one run in the first inning on an RBI single from Courtney Cardenas in the bottom of the first inning, then added three more in the second on the account of RBI singles from Sarah Codner and Molly Raley, and an error that permiited Miranda Brady to cross the plate.

Raley let at the plate with a 2-of-2 effort, and Codner was 2-for-3. 

Wilson 8, Empire 0: Reed pitched her first no-hitter of the season Thursday.
“She kept them off-balance and they had a lot of weak ground balls,” Wilson coach Scott Hartman said. “We played good defense except we had two errors back-to-back.”
