Maddie Robinson having a dominant pitching performance is old news for the Natchitoches Central softball team. But when her strikeouts account for 17 of a possible 21 outs in another one-hitter, Robinson is an absolute show-stopper.

Tuesday, her pitching and another steady offensive performance by the Lady Chiefs produced a 6-0 District 1-5A victory over visiting Parkway.

In a nine-hit attack, Desi Robinson, Sydney Terrell, and Ehren Guidroz each had multiple hits for Natchitoches Central. Desi Robinson collected three hits in four at bats.

In the second inning, NCHS got going when Mallory LaCour’s sacrifice fly scored all the runs Maddie Robinson needed.

Only a sixth-inning single denied Robinson a no-hitter as Parkway dropped to 6-3.

The Lady Chiefs (13-3) will travel to Haughton today for a 5 p.m. district contest.
