The Bonner Springs softball team lost its fourth in a row in a sweep at Lansing on Tuesday.

After Bre Tendick provided what appeared to be a promising start with a leadoff home run in the first game — her second this season — the Lions shut down Bonner Springs’ batters the rest of the day. From there, Lansing cruised to 16-1 and 10-0 victories.

Coach Denise Chowning said she was able to use some players who, up to that point, had limited-to-no varsity experience.

Freshman Hannah Fehlafer came into the second game to pitch, and held Lansing to just one run in her brief appearance on the mound.

In the first game, much of the Lions offense came from a 12-run first inning to effectively put the game away from the onset.

In the loss, Tendick provided the Braves’ only two hits. Similarly, Bonner Springs was held to just two hits in its second outing, as Samantha Ricci-Weller and Cassady Holloway each reached base.

Bonner Springs’ four-game skid puts the team at 6-4 on the season with a pair of home double-headers against fellow Kaw Valley League contenders, Mill Valley and Basehor-Linwood, on deck next week. The Braves will look to turn things around when they host a doubleheader against the Jaguars starting at 4 p.m. on Tuesday.
