Blue Springs South softball snapped a tie with two fifth inning runs and held on for a 5-3 victory against Lee’s Summit North in the Suburban Big Six at Legacy Park.

Michaela Tolliver scattered six hits and, helped by the defense, worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the sixth inning.

Stephanie Murdock powered the Jaguars (14-10, 3-5) with two doubles, a single and three RBIs. Kaitlin Schaberg singled with one RBI and scored twice and Brooke Parker singled, scored one run and stole two bases.

“The big inning was the sixth,” South coach Vickie Brummel said.

North fell to 2-6 and 16-9.

South also took the junior varsity game 8-4.

TRUMAN 13, ST. JOSEPH CENTRAL 2: Truman is the Suburban Middle Six softball titlist.

Paige Parker pitched a two-hitter with 13 strikeouts and singled and hit a solo homer in guiding Truman past St. Joseph Central 13-2 at Adair Park Wednesday.

Truman improved to 19-5 for its best record since 28-5 in 2000 when it finished third in the state. The last conference title for the Patriots was in 2005 when they shared the then Suburban Big Six crown with Fort Osage.

“Winning the conference is big for us,” Truman coach Steve Broughton said. “That was one of our goals at the beginning of the year. We did a good job at the plate. We were a little sloppy in the third inning (when Central scored both of its runs).”

Catcher Tishina Bradley singled three times with one RBI and one run scored, Olivia Brown singled twice with two RBIs and two runs scored, Tori Zorich doubled twice with two RBIs and Brooke Pollard and Emily Davis each tripled as Truman collected 15 hits.

A seven-run first inning assured Truman of improving to 9-0 in the conference with North Kansas City remaining Friday.

PARK HILL SOUTH 14, WILLIAM CHRISMAN 0: Park Hill South scored five runs in each of the first two innings and rolled to an easy Suburban Middle Seven victory at Adair Park, spoiling in the process the Chrisman Senior Night.

“The seniors got an opportunity to play and some had some nice plays,” Chrisman coach Mark Amos said.

Chrisman (6-19, 0-10) was held to four hits. The Bears conclude conference play with a doubleheader with first-place Belton Friday.
