The KMS softball team was eliminated for the season with a 7-2 loss to Lac qui Parle last Wednesday night in the consolation bracket of the Section 3A Softball Tournament.

The Saints, who were seeded first in their half of the draw, opened up the tourney with a 10-2 win over YME and 12-2 victory over Dawson-Boyd, Tuesday, May 22 before losing for the first time to Wabasso (10-7), May 26.

That sent the Saints into the consolation bracket where they stayed alive with a 9-8 win over BOLD, May 26, but the season came to an end one game later with the loss to LQP.

LQP went on to lose to Wabasso, 2-1, later the same day, and Wabasso advanced to the finals to face SWC-Edgerton.

KMS, which finished the season with a 19-4 overall record, continued its mastery of area competition over the past 15-plus seasons.  It was the 24th straight winning season for the KMS softball team, which is 199-13 in the Camden Conference over the last 15 seasons and 305-52 overall.

Eileen Suter has coached all 27 years of the KMS softball program, which is an unofficial 458-157 overall.

Seniors lost to graduation from this year’s KMS softball team are Tessa Grewe and Hannah Rosenboom....
