North Tahoe softball drops a pair vs. Quincy

Sun Staff reports

The North Tahoe softball team lost both games of a nonleague doubleheader, 18-2 and 13-5, against Quincy on Saturday.

Laker head coach Richard Mesa said his team is still committing too many errors, as North Tahoe had seven in Game 1 and 10 in Game 2.

“Plus,” he said, “(Quincy) was crushing the ball,” hitting four or five home runs in the first contest.

Junior Christina Lane pitched Game 1 and Shea Mesa threw Game 2. Each had two strikeouts.

Offensively in the first game, Lane, Hillary Stoner, Alexa Andrews and Mealani Mesa each had one hit for North Tahoe.

Mesa said that while the Lakers played better across the board in the second game, they dug themselves a hole by giving up nine runs on seven errors in the first inning alone. The coach said his team should have gotten the first three batters out, but instead allowed each to reach base on errors, leading to the big inning for Quincy.

Shea Mesa, Alyssa McElwain and Lane each had two hits, while Shannon Stack, Michelle Harley and Andrews each had one. Lane, Shea Mesa and McElwain each picked up an RBI.
