It was a tough weekend for the Camdenton softball team in the capital city.

The Lakers took on the Jefferson City Tournament and dropped four games, falling to Kirksville, Fatima, Sullivan and Lee’s Summit out of the Kansas City area.

Camdenton was in a good defensive battle to start the weekend with Kirksville, but the Tigers were able to add nine runs in the fifth inning to finish with a 10-0 win.

Katy Pitts led the Lakers with two hits as Addy Clay, Zoe Lockhert and Adee Enos provided a hit each for the Camdenton bats. Gracie Coffelt went 4 1/3 innings and allowed 10 runs, one earned, on 13 hits while striking out one and walking three. The Lakers had three errors in the contest.

Up next was Fatima and the Comets scored all 12 of their runs in the second inning en route to a 12-2 win. Lockhert, Sadie Stockman, Pitts and Felicity Kirby posted a hit each for the Lakers and Enos and Pitts had two RBIs. Ryah Moore was in the circle and pitched all five innings allowing 12 runs, two earned, on 12 hits with a pair of strikeouts and four walks. Camdenton posted four errors on the defensive end as well.

Sullivan came away with an 18-0 win in the third contest as the Lakers were held to a single hit from Lockhert in five innings. Coffelt pitched all five innings allowing 11 earned runs on 16 hits and four walks. The defense also had four errors in this game.

Camdenton closed out with Lee’s Summit and dropped a 16-1 game to the Tigers. Pitts posted a hit and RBI for the Laker offense and Moore went three innings allowing 12 earned runs on nine hits with five walks and a strikeout while Coffelt pitched an inning and allowed four runs, none earned, on three hits and a walk.
