New Life Christian continued their winning ways Monday afternoon sweeping Jemison’s Chilton Christian 16-0 and 17-0.
The Eagles rattled off a combined 32 hits in the two games.
Logan Jozwiak was the Game 1 winner, giving up one hit in three innings of work with eight strikeouts.

Austin Figurin rounded out the New Life assault with three hits, three runs, three RBIs and three stolen bases.
“We had 10 stolen bases in the game,” said Todd McCutchin, coach of the Eagles. “We wanted to be more aggressive. We wanted to go on and get it done. We had eight runs in the first inning. And they were all off hits. Chilton didn’t have an error. Our bats were just hot all the way through the lineup.”
Russell picked up the win in the second game, returning to the pitching rubber after a three week layoff.
“He hit the first batter and I thought we were going to be in for a long day,” said McCutchin.
Russell found his grove and struck out 12 to record the no-hitter.

The Eagles will end the week Friday afternoon against Marion Academy, starting at 4.
