North Tahoe softball: Lakers drop two against tough Lovelock team

The Lakers lost both games of a doubleheader, 22-4 and 12-1, in their league openers at Pershing County (Lovelock) this past weekend.

North Tahoe head coach Richard Mesa said the Lakers “had a ton” of errors in Game 1 behind senior starter Christina Lane, who recorded six strikeouts against a team Mesa thinks is among the top contenders in the Northern 2A.

“It was mostly errors that killed us,” Mesa said. “Christina pitched a great game.”

Seniors Hilary Stoner, Lane and Shelby Adams had North Tahoe’s only hits.

The Lakers cleaned up their defense in the second game, commiting only two errors behind senior starting pitcher Shea Mesa, who struck out five hitters.

Lane went 2 for 2 at the plate, while Stoner, Mealani Mesa and Heidi Jimenez each had one hit.

“The second game we played better,” Mesa said, “but obviously we didn’t hit the ball very well.”

UP NEXT: The Lakers play a league doubleheader at Battle Mountain on Saturday at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
