Austin Hendricks was brilliant on the bump, tossing a complete game no-hitter to lead the Knights to a 4-0 victory on Senior Night last Friday. The senior pitcher dominated the Panthers, striking out 12 to increase his record on the year to 5-3 with a 1.69 ERA and 60 K’s, only allowing 6 BB’s.
Seniors Jake Willis, Logan Spivey, and Brooks Gulley all shined at the plate contributing multiple hits each. Gulley knocked a double and a triple and Spivey’s double accounted for three of the five extra-base hits for UL.
