DAYTON, Nev. — The South Tahoe softball team got back on track with a lopsided road victory Tuesday, May 3. The Vikings routed Dayton 23-4 in five innings to complete a series sweep and end a three-game losing streak.

South Tahoe (11-11, 11-10 I-A Northern) trailed 3-2 after the first inning, but quickly turned things around. The Vikings scored 16 runs over the next two frames and took a commanding lead after a 10-run third.

The Vikings had 18 hits in Tuesday’s win, including eight that went for extra bases. Junior Kendra Conard led the way offensively, finishing 4-for-4 with a home run, two doubles, seven RBIs and four runs.

Junior Drue Chapman went 3-for-4 with a double, four RBIs and three runs against Dayton while senior Bailey Barcellos was 3-for-3 with a double and four runs. Junior Brooke Erdody went deep with a home run for South Tahoe, and finished 2-for-2 with three RBIs and three runs — senior Nora Anderson also collected multiple hits, going 2-for-3 with a double, four RBIs and three runs.

In the circle, Conard threw 5.0 innings and allowed four runs (two earned) on three hits. The right-hander struck out 11 and walked two for a third win this season over Dayton (2-22-1, 2-19). The Vikings outscored the Dust Devils, 48-6, over the three games.

South Tahoe’s weekend series at Spring Creek was moved up to avoid potential inclement weather. The Vikings opened their three-game set against the Spartans with a 14-2 win Wednesday, May 4, with a doubleheader scheduled for Thursday, May 5.
