Post 69 juniors finish fifth in own tourney
A shortage of pitching and a lack of offense sent Robinson American Legion Post 69's junior team to another defeat Wednesday morning at the First Annual Wounded Warrior Wood Bat Tournament at Robinson City Park.

As they did most of the tournament, Post 69 struggled to score runs, as they dropped their first game in tournament play to Clever, Mo., 6-2, sending Post 69 to a fifth-place finish in the five-team field.

Lady Panthers thumped by Altamont, 15-0
Every conceivable way a team could get beat happened to Oblong High School's softball team and it all took place in the same inning Saturday.

What started out as a pitcher's duel quickly turned into a one-sided affair, resulting in a 15-0 loss for the Lady Panthers at the hands of Altamont in the championship game of the Class 1A Cumberland Sectional.

"That was a good, old-fashioned, behind-the-woodshed butt whoopin," OHS head coach Galen Slover said. "I think our inexperience was a factor in this one. But, the bottom line is, when you don't get any hits and can't put up any runs, you aren't going to win a ball game."

Lady Panthers rally past Central A&M, 4-1
Getting runners on base tends to be easier than getting them across the plate.

Oblong High School's softball team didn't have a problem getting on base, but had difficulty getting runners home for most of Tuesday's IHSA Class 1A Cumberland Sectional semifinal. But, the Lady Panthers were able to break through late and it was enough to give them a 4-1 win over Moweaqua Central A&M.

"We are playing well at the time we need to be playing well," OHS head coach Galen Slover said. "I am happy all the way around. We played with a lot of heart and enthusiasm."
