— Ashley Burnett threw a no-hitter in the opener, then won the nightcap in relief as Lawrence High swept a softball doubleheader with Shawnee Mission East, 3-0 and 8-3, on Thursday at the Johnson County Girls Athletic Assn. fields.

Burnett (3-1) struck out 12 in the first game and walked none, then relieved in the fourth inning of the Lions' comeback victory in Game Two.

"Her rise ball was working really well, and her changeup was on tonight," LHS coach Reenie Stogsdill said.

Jennifer Narcomey had four hits on the night; LHS banged 18 hits in the twinbill.

"We had 18 hits, but I was a little disappointed in the second game we had the bases loaded twice with no outs and we never scored," Stogsdill said. "We left 11 batters on in the second game and nine batters in the first game. We should have had a lot of runs. We feel good about getting away with two victories, but we left too many runners on base and made some errors. We're getting there."

The Lions (3-1) will play host to Olathe South on Monday.
