MINFORD — Starting off with nothing.

The Rock Hill Redwomen started the season with nine freshmen on the roster, but junior Jazel DeAutremont took charge by pitching a five-inning no-hitter in an 11-0 win to open the season Monday.

“We played well,” said Rock Hill Mary Harper said. “A lot of it is a learning thing right now because we have so many young ones.”
