Iowa Park’s Lady Hawks improved to 5-1 on the season this past week with an impressive 4-1 run at the Henrietta ASC Softball Tournament.

On Thursday, the Lady Hawks beat Seymour 12-1, and Pampa 9-2.

On Friday, Iowa Park earned a 13-7 win over Petrolia, and blanked Nocona 13-0.

Their only loss of the season so far came in a 10-0 win for Windthorst on Saturday.

“Last week’s tournament really gave us some confidence,” said Coach Amy Garcia. “The three freshmen we have on the varsity (Raylea Parsons, Rylee Go-ins, and Payton Murray) are really giving us a fire in the lineup. They are aggressive and go-getters.

“The upperclassmen have really set a good example, and meshed well with the younger girls,” the Lady Hawk coach continued. “We seem to have great chemistry and a good start on the season. We have a lot of work to do, but we are excited to put it on. We are looking forward to hosting our tournament this weekend, and seeing some good competition.”

The 2019 Iowa Park Tournament is today through Saturday, and being played at Lady Hawk Field and in Henrietta.

The Lady Hawks will host all five of their games, starting at 12:50 p.m. today against Archer City, and at 4:10 against Springtown.

Tomorrow, Iowa Park will play Liberty Christian at 5:50 p.m.

The Lady Hawks play Stephenville Saturday at 11:10 a.m., and Windthorst at 2:30 p.m.

The freshman Lady Hawks made an impression early in the Henrietta Tournament, as Parsons threw a no-hitter in a 12-1 win over Seymour. Parsons went four innings, allowing one run on no hits with 11 strikeouts.

Jade Martin led at the plate with two hits in three at-bats.

Erin Fairchild earned a 9-2 win on the mound against Pampa, allowing two runs on three hits with three strikouts.

Kristina Diaz homered, and had multiple hits along with Murray.

Parsons earned a 13-7 win against Petrolia on the mound, striking out nine and allowing seven hits and seven runs.
