The Davis Demons’ U14 softball team won six games last weekend to win the championship at the Hot Bats All World Tournament, contested at Freedom Park in McClellan.

Davis’ Audrey Defresne opened the tourney by pitching a no-hitter with six strikeouts in a 13-0 win over the Swaggerz. In that game, the local offense was paced by Evelyn Andrews, who smacked a double and a triple to knock in three runs. Defresne also reached base three times and had two RBIs, while Savana Meyer (two), Abbie DeWit, Rosey Heilmann and Madison Furton added hits.

Demon pitcher Morgan Price took the mound in the next outing and tossed a two-hit shutout to beat NorCal Athletics, 6-0. She struck out seven batters and had a hit of her own, as did Eliana Hupe, Julia Irwin-Garza, Paige Domgaard and others.

The Davis offense was even better in a 13-2 win over the Sac Hitterz as Defresne blasted the first or her two homers on the weekend and Heilmann — who had five strikeouts and gave up just one hit in the circle — doubled and knocked in a run. Alyssa Osborne also had an RBI in the win.

Next, the locals edged NorCal, 4-3, in a rematch and topped the Sparks Storm, 7-3, to reach the title match. There, the Demons defeated the Valley Heat, 8-4 to capture the championship.

In the finale, Heilmann started and got the win, played sparkling defense — included an alert catch in the circle that she turned into a double play by throwing to Price at first — and added a double and RBI at the plate. Also for Davis, Defresne smacked her second home run out of the park, had three RBIs and closed out the game in the circle, while DeWit collected three hits.
