PAXTON — Luke Fitton didn’t need much offensive support on Friday.
The Paxton-Buckley-Loda baseball team delivered six hits en route to a 6-0 Sangamon Valley Conference home win against Dwight, but Fitton did the rest.
Fitton struck out 11 while throwing a no-hitter as PBL (18-2) won its third straight game. Kaleb Denault went 2 for 2 with two RBI to lead the Panthers’ offense.
Mahomet-Seymour 8, Prairie Central 1. Austin Biehl started the game in style for the Bulldogs (13-9) with a leadoff first-inning homer in a game played at Mahomet. Dylan Gates was 2 for 3 with a double and a triple for M-S. The Hawks fell to 12-13.

Buffaloes relying on youth
GEORGETOWN — Colton Leake spent his first year at Georgetown-Ridge Farm evaluating raw skills, and not just during the spring season.
CATLIN — Elizabeth Everingham is in the perfect situation to start her high school coaching career.
She’s a first-year coach in charge of a Salt Fork program with no seniors and only one junior, outfielder Cadia Sands. The remaining squad members are sophomores or freshmen.
Why he was chosen: The senior hit .692 last week with a home run and 10 RBI to go along with five doubles, a triple and six runs scored in helping the Chargers post their first winning streak of the season.
