GREAT BEND — McPherson’s U-12 Lady Express never broke a sweat in sweeping to the championship of the Great Bend Summer Blast Softball Tournament this weekend.

• Express 14, Monarchs 4 — McPherson scored six runs in each of the first two innings to take control of the game early. Seven McPherson players had one hit each, the biggest a triple by Katie Dix. Brette Doile fanned four and picked up the win and she also drove in three runs.

• Express 13, Larned 1 — The Express continued to imitate a runaway freight train, again using back-to-back six-run innings to open the game. Henson had a homer and drove in four runs. Madi Tolle added two hits and two RBIs. Henson pitched a one-hitter and struck out five.

• Express 8, Wellington 0 — Doile authored the shutout and struck out three while walking only one. Olivia Morgan and Gracie Kidd had two hits, while Kidd and Abby Hipp drove in two runs.
