BOERNE – A big inning by the Lady Antlers was not enough to counter an even bigger inning by Boerne Champion and the end result was a 12-10 loss to the Chargers Tuesday night in District 26-5A softball action.

Champion erupted for seven in runs in the third inning and went up 10-2. Tivy scored six of its own in the fourth but four errors and six stranded base runners during the game hampered Tivy's efforts to stretch its win streak to five. The Lady Antlers are 13-2 in district play (21-10-2 overall).

Alyssa Hickman provided the power for Tivy by blasting a grand slam and accounted for six RBIs in the game. Marissa Medina and Lexi Perez totaled two hits each of Tivy's 10 in the game. Amber Pintsch, Lexi Callcott and Medina all scored twice..

Medina was the starting pitcher, going two and two thirds innings, where she allowed five hits and five earned runs. Kaitlyn Secor relieved for three and one thirds of work, giving up two hits.

Tivy hosts Harlandale on Thursday, April 18 at 7 p.m. in the final regular season home game of the year. The team's senior players will be honored prior to game time.
