TAMPA -- Chamberlain woke from its post-spring break slumber, defeating Leto 8-0 behind Amanda Cody's no-hitter to win the title at King.

Cody struck out 10 and walked three. That followed a one-hit, 13-strikeout effort in a 10-0 victory against King in the semifinals.

Melissa Zick's three-run triple keyed a seven-run first for the Chiefs, who improved to 23-6 but were only 7-5 in their past 12. Natalie Ippolito added a two-run triple during the inning.

Sharks drop Bulls

SARASOTA -- Riverview ended its seasonlong drought against rival Bloomingdale and at the same time claimed the district title with a 3-0 win.

The Bulls (23-6) won both previous contests in extra innings and held the Sharks (24-5) scoreless in 18 innings. That streak ended in the bottom of the first.

Kim Tarre started the rally with a liner off Bloomingdale pitcher Stacey Bronson. Kaycie Maines walked and Brooke Wendel followed with a sacrifice bunt. An errant throw allowed Tarre to score and Meghan Manso lifted a sacrifice fly to center for all the runs the Sharks would need.

Sharks pitcher Beth DiPietro (22-4) tossed the five-hit shutout.

Plant City sparkles

At Haines City, Plant City's Tracy Durrance said she knew it could happen, she just didn't expect it in the final game against crosstown rival Durant.

Plant City did everything it had to do from defense to pitching to hitting, beating Durant 4-0 to win the title.

The Raiders struck out only one and walked one but managed to scoop up everything Durant put in play, holding the Cougars to two hits.

Crusaders get help

The Crusaders, who received a bye into the district final and automatic regional quarterfinal berth that comes with it, started out strong by scoring three runs in the first inning. TC (14-10) had a 6-0 lead before the Warriors (9-11) got on the board and managed to hang on despite a three-run rally in the sixth inning.

Sickles routs Plant

BRANDON -- Jackie Leppla threw a complete game and drove in the game-ending runs as Sickles overpowered Plant 11-0 in six innings for the title at Brandon.

"We're really coming together as a team," Sickles coach Tammy Overcash said.

AHN edges Berkeley

TAMPA -- Sophomore left-hander Jennifer Jacobs allowed four hits and Academy of the Holy Names pulled off a clutch double play in the sixth to defeat host Berkeley Prep 1-0 for the title.

Jacobs (10-1) had a no-hitter through 4 2/3 innings and was given the lead when Kelly Glover's single drove home Frances Jacinto in the third.

-- DON JENSEN

Lancers win huge

LARGO -- Kim Rolley allowed one hit and struck out 10 as Seminole Presbyterian routed host Indian Rocks Christian 23-0 in four innings.

The Lancers face Bayshore Christian, an 11-3 winner over Lakeside Christian, in the final at 5:30 today at Indian Rocks Christian.
