SCIOTOVILLE — That was quite a “Payne” in the side of the Sciotoville East Lady Tartans.

Kaitlyn Payne pitched a five-inning no-hitter as she struck out 12 and did not walk a batter as the Symmes Valley Lady Vikings routed East 16-0 Monday in a Southern Ohio Conference game.

The Lady Tartans’ only baserunner came on an error in the fifth inning.

“Kaitlyn pitched a really nice game,” said Lady Vikings’ coach Jeff “Odie” Estep. “We hit the ball and took advantage of our baserunners.”

The Lady Vikings (5-1, 5-0) parlayed nine hits with 10 walks and four East errors to rack up the runs.

Hannah Mays had two-run double in the first inning as the Lady Vikings took a 3-0 lead.

Symmes Valley erupted for 10 runs in the second inning to lead 13-0.

Hannah Maynard, Sierra Ross and Tiara Hatfield all had two-run singles during the 10-run explosion.
