Osage winning streak ends at Helias and Camdenton takes 5th in Ozark Conference Tournament

Osage winning streak ends with loss to Helias

The streak has finally come to an end for School of the Osage.

The Indians brought a nine-game unbeaten streak in dual play spanning over a month to Helias Tuesday night and the Crusaders ended it with a 6-3 win.

Like every other match, the night started well as Osage picked up two wins in doubles play as Eliza Koeppen and Natalie Brick topped their opponents 8-3 while Lily Davis and Zoie Turner won their match 8-6.

Singles play featured several close matches as both sides decided to go with the district format of two sets to six games. However, Lily was the lone Indian to come away with a win as she won her three-set tiebreaker 10-8.

Osage (9-1) hosts Mexico on Thursday at 4:30 p.m., and will wrap up the regular season at the Waynesville Invitational on Friday before districts start next week.

Camdenton finishes 5th at Ozark Conference Tournament

Camdenton went to battle with the rest of the Ozark Conference Tournament in Springfield on Tuesday and the Lakers finished in the middle of the pack, taking fifth amongst the 10 teams.

The Lakers, seeded fifth before the action got underway, fell to Lebanon 5-3 in the first match and swept West Plains and Rolla 5-0 to close it out.

After all the sets concluded, the Lakers had a player named among the best of the conference as Darby Roam made the All-Conference list with 10 other players.

Up next for Camdenton (7-4) is the Waynesville Invitational on Friday to wrap up the regular season before districts start next week.
