Columbus Discoverers

Columbus High softball season came to an end on Wednesday during the district tournament at Omaha Marian. 

CHS defeated Omaha Bryan in its most lopsided win of the year, 12-0, in the first round but then fell to top seed Omaha Marian in the next round. Omaha Burke leads defeated Columbus 9-6 to end the Discoverers season. 

Burke controlled a 4-0 lead after two innings, but singles by Tayler Braun and Addison Huele in the top of the third closed the gap to 4-2. 

Burke stretched the lead to 5-1 in the bottom of the inning, but CHS answered with three in the fourth to tie the game at 5-5. 

Burke then scored four in the bottom of the sixth to take a 9-5 lead.

CHS scored one run in the seventh, but wasn't able to close the gap any further. 

Columbus started Wednesday with a bang, scoring four first-inning runs against Bryan then tacking on nine more in the third and ending the game early on the mercy rule.
