The Bulldogs picked up a District 1-A doubleheader sweep on Tuesday evening against neighboring foe Cloudland.

In the first game, CHS opened up with a 1-0 lead in the top of the first, but Hampton quickly answered with two runs of their own. The Bulldogs broke the stalemate with two runs in the home side of the fourth before Cloudland used a run in the fifth and sixth inning before HHS tallied four runs in the home side of the sixth to take full control.

Parker Henry was 3-for-4 at the plate for Hampton, while Weston Street and Caleb Royston added two hits for the Bulldogs cause. Dillion Johnson led Cloudland with a 3-for-4 performance, while Brayden Christman was 2-for-4.

In the second game, Hampton saw Josh Owens and Dalton Rouse combine to throw a no-hitter. The duo tallied 10 strikeouts to limit the CHS offense. Johnson had a strong showing for Cloudland on the mound as he allowed just four earned runs on seven hits with six strikeouts.

The Cyclone bats got hot early and never cooled down.

Elizabethton jumped to a 5-0 lead in the first inning and added three more runs in the second to leave no doubt. After South tacked on a run in the top of the third, EHS answered with seven runs in the third to erase any thoughts of a South rally.

Jaden Anderson, Lawson Wagner, Matthew Dailey, Evan Perkins and Evan Carter had two hits a piece to lead the Cyclones.
