PROCTORVILLE — Temperatures weren’t that high and the sky was overcast with rain falling on Wednesday.
But things were heating up on the softball field as the Fairland Lady Dragons shut out the Chesapeake Lady Panthers 4-0 in an Ohio Valley Conference game.
Fairland’s Kaylee Salyer amassed 16 strikeouts while Erikka Bowman racked up 10 in defeat for Chesapeake (1-15, 0-12).
Salyer continued her late season surge as she went the distance with no walks while allowing just two hits to get the win.
Bowman only gave up four hits and walked just one. All four hits went for extra bases.
