(Kimballton) The dominance of Exira-EHK junior pitcher Rachel Smith was on display again Monday night when the Spartans beat West Harrison 8-0 in Kimballton. The junior pitcher didn't allow a walk or a hit in 7 shutout innings.
On the season Smith has not given up an earned run, just three unearned runs is all that the Spartan opponents have been able to manange. Exira-EHK is 5-0 on the season. Smith struck out 17 batters in the dominant pitching performance Monday night. Her 17.8 strikeout per game rate would be a single season state record if she can continue the pace.
Offensively R. Smith and Kennedy Madsen each had three hits for Exira-EHK. The 8 runs was a new season high for the Spartans who will be back in action at home tonight against Audubon.
