Flynn fires no-hitter as Gators roll to 14-0 win

 Xavier Prep’s team got back to business on Wednesday (March 2), rolling to a 14-0 victory in six innings over Phoenix Mountain Pointe, a contest in which senior pitcher Riley Flynn tossed a no-hitter and struck out 14.

The Gators (7-1) got four hits apiece from seniors Elliot Smith and Emma Petersen and three hits from sophomore Lauren Putz. Petersen and Putz hit home runs.

Xavier will play again next week on Tuesday (March 8) with another road game at Phoenix Sandra Day O’Connor in the north Valley. O’Connor has a long tradition as one of the area’s most consistent teams.
