Boyd County 16

Fairview 0

CANNONSBURG Caitlin Coburn pitched for the first time in a year, and while she only faced seven batters, Boyd County Geoff Stewart was pleased with that as much as anything else as his Lady Lions routed Fairview on Tuesday.

Stephanie May and Bri Crooks tallied two hits apiece.
