Pacific was eliminated from the Class 4 District 3 Softball Tournament with a first-round loss Wednesday at Parkway South, 10-2.

Third-seeded Parkway South (15-9) lost to second-seeded Lafayette Thursday in the semifinals, 3-2.

Lafayette (17-7) and top-seeded Eureka (17-1) were scheduled to play for the district title Friday.

“South hit the ball with authority and were dominate in all aspects of the game,” said Pacific Head Coach Traci Dewert.

Marissa Tate, a freshman, pitched all six innings for Pacific (9-12).

She allowed 10 runs, nine earned, on 10 hits with seven walks and no strikeouts.

Lizzy Almo led Pacific’s attack by going 3-4 at the plate with a home run, one RBI and one run.

Madison LeClaire added two hits and scored one run.

“Madison is going to be one of the players we look to for leadership in the years to come,” Dewert said.

Mary McDaniel, Meagan Wakefield and Amber Zurliene each finished with one hit.

“We would like to thank the seniors for the four years they have played for the program,” Dewert said. “They definitely have left a mark here. It will be very hard to replace them.”
