Baseball, softball seasons end at regionals

Baseball season ended Monday in the regional tournament. The tournament was held at Ottawa University due to a flooded Lyndon field.

The Chargers had to play in the play-in game against Burlingame. The Chargers won decisively 24-1. The Chargers had to face the #1 seed Mission Valley right after. The Chargers lost to the Vikings both times earlier this year. The Chargers kept it close until the 5th inning when the Vikings pulled away, winning 9-5. 

The Chargers ended the season with a record of 2-20. The Chargers will lose four seniors: Isaac Lira, Eli Mumpower, Peter Stuhlzatz, and Hunter McCollugh. 


Softball had its season end yesterday in the regional tournament as well. The tournament was held in Wathena. 

The Chargers were able to escape the first round with a 5-4 win over Riverside on Monday. The Chargers were down 4-1 early, but were able to come back. The Chargers faced the second seed Troy in the regional semi-final yesterday, falling 5-2.

Softball ended the season with a 11-11 record. They will lose two seniors: Jordan Magette and Ryleigh Jones. Jones will play softball at Cloud County Community College and Magette will play softball at Barton Community College. 

“We had a good season,” said head softball coach Joe Dee Tarbutton. “It was productive. We are very young. We lost two seniors that were very good and we’ll miss them. We will have a very good team next season.”

The track team is the final group competing this season, and will head to regionals at Valley Heights Friday afternoon.
