On May 16 Cambridge Christian Softball travelled to Christian Life and lost 13-10 after leading most of the game.
“We were down one starter, so I moved people around. I made a pitching change trying to be careful with Annie KinCannon’s arm. But we then struggled in pitching and fielding in the sixth inning,” noted CCS Coach Kim Aleckson.
CCS defeated 18-8 North Lakes Academy on May 6. The girls played well behind KinCannon who marked 12 strikeouts.
On May 12 the Warriors travelled to Rosemount, played in the rain and cold and lost 20-6.
Christian Life 2, CCS Baseball 1
Scrambling with two more starters lost to injuries, the Warrior baseball team still managed to battle host Christian Life before falling 2-1. Cambridge Christian is now 7-4 on the season.
The Warriors led the Hawks 1-0 out of the gate when Jake Bergman reached on an error, followed by singles from Alex Moses and Alex Lecceardone. CL’s hard-throwing pitcher limited the opportunities after that, but the Warriors did load the bases in the top of the seventh before the final out was made. Anthony Lecceardone returned from his injury to pitch four strong innings, giving up two runs in the third. Moses threw two innings in relief, striking out 5.
