Written by Janae Rempel Tuesday, 05 March 2013 14:31The Tabor softball team faced tough competition at the Oklahoma Baptist Softball Festival Friday and Saturday, with the Bluejays dropping all four of their weekend games.
York––After missing three straight games due to weather, Tabor took to the field Friday and suffered a 2-0 loss to York College.
“The players were frustrated with the big winter storm,” coach Suzanne Unruh said. “Once the snow hit us, we were snowed in for over a week, and that slows things down a little.
“It took several innings to get the bats rolling and getting used to the dirt again.”
York scored one run each in the second and fourth innings.
Bluejays recording hits were Chelsea Nutt and Brittney Dymnioski.
On the mound, Karen Harris pitched six...

It was somehow fitting that the Hillsboro boys ended an “if only” season with an “if only” 44-43 loss to Haven in the final seconds of Friday’s sub-state semifinals.
Hillsboro, who lost five games during the regular season by a margin of four points or less, overcame a 20-8 first-quarter deficit to lead by as much as 41-35 after three quarters. But victory proved to be elusive one last time.
Haven made about everything it threw up in the first quarter to build that 20-8 lead.
“Everything they did went their way, and we missed layups in the first part of the game when we were just pressing too hard,” coach Darrel Knoll said. “If we make a couple of those, it’s a...

Before the game was over, both teams endured long stretches of minimal scoring. Haven’s came first.
The Wildcats scored the first two points of the night on a pair of free throws by Hailey Davis 1:11 into the contest, but didn’t score a field goal until MaKayla Stucky scored in the lane at the 2:29 mark of the second quarter—a 13:21 stretch...
