South Tahoe falls to Dayton in 7th

Tribune staff report

South Tahoe High School softball lost a close game in the bottom of the seventh inning Tuesday at Dayton.

The lone run was scored on errors, but was enough to lift the Lady Dust Devils to a 1-0 victory.

Freshman Kendra Conard pitched a complete game and struck-out 16 batters and held Dayton to just four hits.

“She did very good,” said head coach Shawna Mayo. “Most hits were on errors, so she pretty much threw a no-hitter.”

Kayla Griffis had a triple off a line-drive to left field.

“She was the only person who really connected with the pitcher,” Mayo said. “We missed opportunities. We has a runner at third three times and missed eight bunt attempts.”

The loss brings the Lady Vikings to a 5-6 league record and 6-9 overall going into a home doubleheader against Fernley on Wednesday.

“We know we need to work on our short game to advance runners. That’s what we’ll be doing this week,” Mayo said.
