The Lady Lyons have faced more opposition from rain and roller coaster temperatures than competition to start the 2017 season.
The Lady Lyons played their first game at home Thursday against Henderson County. Sophie Bingham threw 15 strikes and allowed just two hits during the 9-0 win. Lyon's bats ended the contest early, taking the win in six innings.
It set the tone for Lyon County's weekend as they went 3-1 at the Meade County Softball Tournament on Saturday. Lyon won 7-0 over St. Anthony of Effingham, Ill., and 16-0 after three innings over Valley from Region Six. The Lady Lyons defeated Henderson again, this time 6-0.
Newcomer Allye Culp pitched a no-hitter against Valley to give ace Bingham a rest during the competition.
Only Collins of Region Eight blemished Lyon County's run, defeating the Lady Lyons 6-2.
The Lady Lyons were slated to host Madisonville-North Hopkins on Monday, but the game was rained out.
