Friday's prep highlights: Bunnies toss no-hitter

In baseball

Fisher 1, Stark County 0. Senior Taw Fredrickson and sophomore Kyle Williams combined to toss a no-hitter in the nonconference game at the Corn Crib in Normal.

"We had outstanding defense despite a couple errors," said Fredrickson, who struck out six in five innings. "We fought back, got the one run in early and kept on them the whole time."

Bunnies center fielder Parker Perrero preserved the no-hitter with a diving catch with two outs in the fifth inning.

Williams said his teammates encouraged him.

"Before each inning in the dugout, all the players were telling me to keep the no-hitter going," Williams said. "I felt a lot of pressure to keep that going and get the win, (but) I stayed pretty calm. I just threw strikes, and my defense helped me out."
