Prep Roundup: Breaux pitches no-no, breaks K record

DACULA - A no-hitter. Not a bad way to finish the season.

Zach Breaux pitched a no-hitter and also broke the school's single-season strikeout record as Dacula beat Clarke Central 1-0 on Wednesday. Breaux (4-4) allowed one runner to reach base. It came on a walk. He finished with nine strikeouts, ending the season with 64 to capture the school record.

Breaux received just enough support from his offense. Dacula scored its only run without the benefit of his a hit in the second inning. Frankie Miller drew a bases-loaded walk to score Jeremy Kien with two outs. Kien and Billy Judd had the game's only hits.
