The Fort Osage softball team continued to roll in its Suburban Middle Seven Conference opener against Raytown Tuesday.
The offense was on fire, pounding out 14 hits, and the pitching was dominant in a 14-0 win at Raytown High School.
“It was nice to get our first conference win,” Fort Osage softball coach Kelly Sullivan said. “We started off a little sluggish, but we’re able to string some hits together by the third inning. Harley Vassholz did a great job pitching, and she fielded her position just as well.”

Chloe Harris led the Indians’ offense by going 4-for-4 with an RBI. Alecia Monday was 1-for-3 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored, and Kyra McIntosh was 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs. Olivia Siefker, Rachel Buntin, Brooke Doherty and Hailey Chase each added a hit and an RBI.
