As if to prove that Tuesday’s no-hitter which she threw against Travelers Rest was not a fluke, Walhalla’s Taylor Crawford threw another one against Camden, one day later.Crawford, a Lander University signee, was, again, dominant as the right-hander helped put an end to the Lady Bulldogs’ AAA District III run and, their season, with a 5-0 win at American Legion Park on Wednesday.It marked the second time in as many games that the right-hander fanned 17 batters and did not allow a hit. In fact, Camden’s best chance at breaking up Crawford’s no-no came when Polly Hardin closed the game with a line drive to left field which was grabbed by the Razorbacks’ Leanne Bowers.Walhalla will travel to meet Chapman tonight in the district finals.Hardin’s line out was the only CHS hit to leave the infield. The other three outs came via a pair of ground balls and a pop fly foul ball to third base.Count CHS head coach Lynn Looney among those impressed with Crawford’s dominating performance.“She is a good pitcher,” Looney said.
