  • The Blue Springs South baseball team continued its impressive start to the season Saturday despite tallying just two hits.
    The Jaguars downed Lafayette-Wildwood 1-0 in the Sedalia Smith-Cotton Tournament as Austin Nordike tossed a complete-game four-hitter and Dominic DeFeo singled in Reece Eddins with the game’s only run in the bottom of the seventh inning.
    Eddins reached on a fielder’s choice, stole second and advanced to third on a passed ball.
    That set the stage for DeFeo’s heroics.
    “It was a great job by the guys and a great job by Austin,” South coach Ben Baier said. “He had seven really solid innings.”
    South went 3-1 in the tournament to improve to 6-1 overall.
    JEFFERSON CITY 8, BLUE SPRINGS 2: Jefferson City used a five-run seventh inning to clinch the Capitol City Classic victory Saturday.
    Zach Robinson singled twice, Corbin Hare doubled and tripled and David Stober doubled to lead the Wildcats (4-4).
    “We have to put that (tournament) behind us,” said Wildcats coach Marc Hines, whose team went 2-2 in the tournament. “We have a big week coming up.”
    ROCKWOOD SUMMIT 15, OAK GROVE 3: A 3-0 Oak Grove lead lasted only one inning Saturday.
    Rockwood Summit, the defending large-class state champion, scored six runs in the top of the second inning and went on to defeat the Panthers in the Sedalia Smith-Cotton Tournament.
    Oak Grove finished 1-3 in the tournament to fall to 6-4 overall.
    Corey Bolin doubled in two of the Oak Grove runs. The Panthers were held to three hits.
    “This was our fifth game in five days and we are proud of the way the kids battled through the week,” Oak Grove coach Kirk Sears said. “Three of our losses were to Class 5 teams. We were able to learn a lot about our team as well as get a lot of guys some time on the field in some really tough situations. The tournament will only make us better.”
    Austin Nibarger took the loss on the mound.
