Experience at Hummer’s a bummer for Bears

Oskaloosa’s Maddy Miller (#18) rounds second base in the Bears’ state softball game against Lyons-Chase High School in Topeka May 29. This was an RBI hit that put the Bears on the scoreboard.The teams were tied at 1 going into the seventh inning. Lyons-Chase scored two runs in the top of the seventh and Oskaloosa was unable to answer, losing 3-1. Despite the loss, the Bears did have an enviable overall record this season ending with 23 wins and only this one loss.

I left Topeka’s Hummer Sports Complex with a “souvenir” last Thursday evening: a small red mark on the back of my right hand consisting of the letters “THUR” (for Thursday) surrounded by a circle. The only trouble is, the girls I’d come to watch, the members of the Oskaloosa High School softball team, left the site with tears in their eyes, their hopes for a state championship dashed, meaning I wouldn’t be returning to the capital city the next day to get another “souvenir” so I could see the Bears play two more games.
