The Grain Valley softball team fell behind early, but quickly recovered to earn a 12-6 decision over visiting Harrisonville on Tuesday. The comeback sealed the Missouri River Valley Conference West championship for the Eagles.

Harrisonville scored four in the first inning, but Grain Valley (18-4, 8-1) exploded for six in the second, four in the fifth and two more in the sixth as Brooklynne Simbeck picked up the win.

“It was good to see the girls be resiliant and pull back in it right away,” Grain Valley coach Jim Oliver said.

Sydney Fry finished 2 for 3 with a triple, three runs scored and three RBIs. Taylor Mays doubled in a 2 for 4 effort, scored once and drove in a run and Kelsi Hill went 2 for 4 with a double, a run driven in and a run scored.

BELTON 13, BLUE SPRINGS SOUTH 2: Visiting Belton was too much for the Blue Springs South softball team.

The Suburban Middle Seven leader cracked 13 hits in a victory over the host Jaguars Tuesday.

Kelsey Schifferdecker held South (19-7) to four hits, including two Maddie Giles singles. Brooke Parker singled and scored both South runs. Alyssa Schallenberg suffered the loss.

“We lost our focus when we didn’t have our varsity pitcher on the mound,” South coach Vickie Brummel said. “We didn’t back her with good defense. Schifferdecker kept our best hitters off the bases.”
