RAYMORE-PECULIAR 5, BLUE SPRINGS SOUTH 0: In a battle of Class 4 heavyweights, visiting Blue Springs South could not get past the Panthers as all-state pitcher Camryn Stickel threw a five-hit shutout.
“We hit the ball hard,” South coach Kristi Williams said after her Jaguars fell to 9-2 overall and 2-2 in Suburban Big Six play. “But we couldn’t find the gaps.
“Our hits were scattered and Ray-Pec had a string of three hits in their four-run fifth inning off Kierra Goos, who allowed five runs on seven hits.”
South’s Addie Lightner had two doubles, Regi Hecker added a triple and Lauren Rogers finished with two singles.
“We are still learning about our team,” said Williams, whose Jaguars are the reigning Class 4 state champions. “I think when Ray-Pec comes over to our place, we will be in a better place, with more experience.
“Ray-Pec played a solid game and is a great, experienced team.”
