PIKEVILLE -- Junior right-hander Jenny Jackson threw a no-hitter as Charles B. Aycock thumped North Johnston 10-0 in a non-conference battle Tuesday.
Jackson recorded seven strikeouts in a contest called after six innings due to the 10-run rule.
It was the season opener for both teams.
"A great way to start the season," second-year Aycock coach David West said. "We had a great team effort. Everybody got a chance to play."
April Vick emerged the Golden Falcons' offensive leader with three hits, including a triple, and three RBI. Sophomore infielder Kandace Burroughs provided two hits and three RBI.
Jackson delivered two hits, including a double, to go along with an RBI. Brittani Edgerton contributed two hits and an RBI.
Jennifer Williams, Rae Ann Edmondson, Kaitlyn Thomas and Chrissy Setliff also contributed to the win.
Aycock rapped 10 singles, one double and two triples as a team.
The Golden Falcons continue play Friday at West Johnston. The first pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m.
"That's going to be a good measuring stick for where we are right now," West said.
