Camdenton tops Springfield Central in first round of districts

Camdenton finished the night with eight hits and Skylar Sederwall, Sadie Stockman and Brandi Sloan led the charge with two hits each. Emma Rakes drove in three runs and both Sederwall and Katy Pitts added two RBIs each.

Camdenton (6-19) was scheduled to meet the top-seeded host Bulldogs in the district semifinals at Rolla on Thursday. A win would place the Lakers in the district championship game on Friday at 6 p.m.
Versailles falls to Calvary Lutheran to end the season
Versailles had the privilege of playing host in the Class 2 District 9 Tournament on Wednesday night. Unfortunately, the fifth-seeded Tigers would not get to advance after a 2-1 loss to No. 4 Calvary Lutheran.
Calvary Lutheran broke the deadlock in the defensive battle with a single run in the second inning. After Versailles tied it up with a run in the third, the visitors added just one more run in the bottom half of the inning and that proved to be just enough.

Marriott was in the circle and pitched all six innings allowing four hits to go with a strikeout and two walks.
