SOUTH POINT — Maybe they should call her Hurryin’ Hannah Huron.

Huron made quick work of the Portsmouth Lady Trojans as she allowed just one hit in four innings to lead the South Point Lady Pointers to an 11-0 win Thursday.

Huron struck out five, did not walk a batter and the only hit was a two-out single in the fourth inning. She also went 2-2 at the plate with a triple and two runs batted in.
