Riley Potts pitched a pair of no-hitters as North Davie overwhelmed South Davie and Ellis in the first week of the middle school softball season.

The Wildcats pounded visiting South Davie 14-0 on April 20. Potts struck out 11 in five innings, and Raelyn Lankford banged out three hits. Chloe Smith had two hits and two stolen bases. Delaney Parsons tripled as North got hits from eight Wildcats and collected five triples.

Two days later, the Wildcats traveled to Ellis and beat up the Jaguars 13-1.

Potts’ pitching line was identical to the first game: five innings, no hits, 11 strikeouts. North drew nine walks and got two hits from Carliegh Croom (three runs), Ava Tomlinson and Avery Carter (triple).
