FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) - Connor Noland has been nearly unhittable during his senior season at Greenwood. Forget scoring multiple runs on him. In fact, forget scoring a run on the Arkansas signee.
Noland struck out 12 in a complete game shutout as the Bulldogs claimed the 6A state championship with a 4-0 win over Benton at Baum Stadium.
During his senior year, Noland went 10-0 with a 0.42 ERA while striking out 123 compared to just 14 walks. Noland allowed 21 hits in 66 2/3 innings.
Greenwood, like they did in the 6A semifinals against Jonesboro, jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning on a Colton Sagely RBI single then a second run scored on the play thanks to a Benton error.
Peyton Holt went 3-for-4 with a RBI for the Bulldogs and finished the season .531.
