After getting their record to .500 one week earlier, the Community R-VI Lady Trojans softball team struggled last week with three losses after being outscored 29-4.
The Lady Trojans started the week with a 19-4 loss to Monroe City after the Lady Panthers had 13 hits.
“We allowed too many base runners against a good team,” said Community R-VI head coach Nathan Carroz.
Both Courtney Bertels and Kate Smith had one hit and one RBI. Amber Harrison finished with two hits.
Alissa Curtis gave up 15 earned runs in the loss while Danie Jackson allowed four earned runs.
One night later, the Lady Trojans were shutout by North Callaway, 6-0.
North Callaway scored at least two runs in two of the first three innings before holding on for the win.
The Lady Trojans did have seven hits in the loss.
“We played pretty well against a good team,” Carroz said. “We had runners in scoring position three times but were unable to get them across the plate. We hit a lot of balls hard but they were right at their players.”
Smith, Harrison, and Curtis each had two hits.
Samm Jett picked up the loss on the mound after allowing five earned runs and had five strikeouts.
The Lady Trojans were also shut out 4-0 in a loss to Montgomery County.
The Lady Wildcats scored two runs in the first and fifth innings in the win.
“We had a tough time putting our bat on the ball early on,” Carroz said. “When we did later on in the game, we hit it right at them. Great game on the mound by both teams.”
Jett was dealt the loss but allowed just three earned runs with one strikout. Danielle Brooks had two hits to lead the offense.
