BAR HARBOR — Mount Desert Island High School junior Emily York pitched a five-inning no hitter last week as the Trojans rolled to a blowout win over Washington Academy.

York struck out 10 batters without a single walk in last Wednesday’s mercy rule-shortened 15-0 win, during which Washington Academy reached base just once via an error. With the victory, she improved her record to 2-0 on the season.

With Washington Academy walking the Trojans 22 times, MDI had just 14 at-bats. The Trojans got base hits from Leah Carroll and Lily Cook, two stolen bases from Lindsey McEachern and RBIs from Carroll, Cook, Ruby Brown, Bailey Goodell and Sadie Sullivan.

Hermon 5 – MDI 4

MDI’s win over Washington Academy came a day after the Trojans put forth a valiant effort in a 5-4 loss at home against third-place Hermon. The Trojans carried a 4-3 lead into the seventh inning before the Hawks plated a pair of runs and closed out the win.

McEachern recorded eight strikeouts and three walks in the loss while allowing three earned runs. The loss left the senior captain 1-3 on the season with 2.33 ERA.

McEachern also led the way for MDI at the plate with three hits and an RBI. The Trojans also got two hits apiece from Cook and Hannah Hanscom and one from Olivia Gray to total eight on the evening.

The Trojans’ game against Old Town (4-2) on Tuesday was pushed back to Wednesday. MDI has upcoming games on the road against Washington Academy and Ellsworth at noon Saturday, May 11, and 4:30 p.m. Monday, May 13, respectively, before hosting Belfast at 4:30 Tuesday, May 14.
