Lady Dees roll in five past Braves on senior night

ALBIA – The final week of the regular season has been a good one so far for the Albia softball team at the plate. The Lady Dees followed up their highest scoring effort of the season on Monday at Davis County by nearly matching it on “senior night” at the Albia Summer Sports Complex, routing Montezuma 14-4 in five innings as the Lady Dees evened their record in their last home game of the year.

The top two hitters in the Lady Dee lineup set the tone for the night. Sydney Weldon and Makenzie Griffin both had three hits, including a pair of home runs for both hitters, and three RBI apiece as Albia added a 15-hit attack to the 18 hits collected as a team 24 hours earlier in Bloomfield.

Albia (15-15) will be bringing that red-hot offense to Wapello County this weekend to compete in the 39th Ottumwa Softball Classic. The Lady Dees will face North Mahaska in the opening game of Saturday’s scheduled at 9 a.m. before facing Southeast Conference contender Fairfield at 1:45 p.m.

Trojans split SEC finale with Fort Madison

FAIRFIELD – It was a pretty simple two-step process to determining the Southeast Conference softball championship entering Tuesday night. Both steps included Fort Madison, who isn’t even in contention for the crown.

Playing both Fairfield and Washington, the co-leaders of the conference, in both teams final SEC doubleheaders, allowed the Bloodhounds to have a big say in which team would be crowned champion be the end of the season. The Trojans took their first shot on Tuesday, settling for a split with Fort Madison on their home diamond as Fairfield fell in game two 6-3 after winning easily in the opener 9-1.
