Earlham beat Glenwood 2-1 late Saturday night in the championship game of the Thomas Jefferson softball tournament.

The all-day, 15-game tournament started at 8 a.m.

Treynor won all three of its games but did not reach the championship game because of a run-differential tiebreaker.

Of the city teams, Lewis Central went 2-1, Thomas Jefferson 1-2, Abraham Lincoln 1-2 and St. Albert 0-3.

THOMAS JEFFERSON: The Yellow Jackets fell 8-2 to Bedford and 13-3 to Lewis Central before coming back to top St. Albert 9-2.

T.J. scored all nine of its runs against the Saintes in the sixth inning.

“We just kind of strung some things together, base hits, fielder’s choices, and were aggressive with our baserunning,” T.J. coach Amy Anderson said.

The big inning wiped out a 2-0 St. Albert lead.

“I told them I was proud of them for how they fought back after being down the whole game,” Anderson said. “They showed a lot of resilience.”

ST. ALBERT: The Saintes fell to Central Decatur and T.J. and were no-hit over five innings by Earlham’s Madeline Jansen in a 10-0 loss.

“I think we have to come out expecting to win, and I don’t know if they have that expectation yet,” St. Albert coach Lyndsay Daley said.

Maddy Horvath was 2 for 2 against Central Decatur.

TREYNOR: The Cardinals’ Sydni Huisman compiled 37 strikeouts over the three games, including 16 while throwing a one-hitter in a 2-1 win over Lewis Central. L.C.’s only hit was Haley Bach’s fourth-inning bunt single.

In the two other games, the Cards shut out Abraham Lincoln 7-0 and Bedford 10-0.

“I thought against A.L. and Bedford, they did a good job of getting a hit when they needed one,” Treynor coach Kara Huisman said.

LEWIS CENTRAL: The Titans went 2-for-3, falling to Treynor but beating Thomas Jefferson and Central Decatur 9-8.

“They’re coming around. They’re a pretty young team, but they’re making strides,” L.C. coach Don Wittstruck said.

The Titans beat Central Decatur when the game went to international rules in the seventh. Maddie Howard started out on second base. Megan Elam sacrificed her to third, and Howard scored on Paige Rodewald’s bloop single.

Against Treynor, Wittstruck said, L.C. played strong defense.

“That’s a 2-1 loss to, what, the No. 5 team in 3-A? (Treynor is No. 7) That’s a good game for us,” he said.
