Leighty tosses no-hitter as Pacers cruise past Irish


The Delaware Hayes softball team broke things open with a four-run second inning and never looked back, cruising to a 10-1 win over visiting Dublin Scioto Monday night.

Bronwynn Leighty led the Pacers (11-4-1) from the dish, finishing 2-for-4 with three RBI. Grace Singleton, Zee Brown and Lexi McCabe knocked in a pair of runs apiece while Kami Pelletier-Harris had a team-high three hits and scored three times.

As good as Leighty was at the plate, she was even better in the pitcher’s circle, tossing a no-hitter despite surrendering an unearned run. She struck out 15 and walked three.
