NEW LIMA – Riley Reed fired a one-hit shutout and launched a home run Saturday and the Vanoss Lady Wolves thumped Lookeba-Sickles 8-0 in five innings to capture the championship of the New Lima Tournament.

Vanoss, which improved to 17-4 on the season, made a perfect 5-0 run through the tournament. The Lady Wolves beat Asher, 7-1, earlier Saturday after defeating Stuart, 5-2, on Friday.

Lookeba-Sickles is now 14-6 after going 6-2 in tournament play.

“It was a great weekend for our team. The tournament provided a good environment with some really solid teams,” said Vanoss head coach Jonathon Hurt. “We had a lot of different kids step up in different situations. We will continue to get better the more experience we gain. This team has a high ceiling and I think people are starting to realize that.”
