Prep softball roundup: Van Batavia tosses no-hitter, MCA wins 2


BENSON — Morris/Chokio-Alberta picked up a pair of shutout wins at Benson on Thursday in the West Central South.

The BraveOwls fell 5-0 and 7-0.

McKenzie Van Batavia threw a no-hitter in the first game with five strikeouts.

Only one BraveOwl reached base, in the sixth, on a grounder that caromed off the pitching slab and to the shortstop, who mishandled the ball — a tough play but the scorer ruled it wasn’t a clean enough hit to break up a no-hitter in the sixth.
