Unbeaten Monarchs down Skutt for title

Papillion-La Vista stayed undefeated through 14 games by beating No. 5 Omaha Skutt 4-0 for the Papillion-La Vista South Invitational softball title Saturday in a matchup of the top-ranked teams in Classes A and B.

Brooke Dumont hit a two-run homer over the scoreboard, Haley Wielweding had an RBI double and Kaylee Wagner an RBI single to back Jordyn Bahl’s 15-strikeout shutout. Skutt stranded two runners at second after each hit a double.

“We played overall pretty well,” Papio coach Todd Petersen said. “Skutt has a good team, Ruby Meylan is a good pitcher and they have a few other very good ballplayers.

“We put pressure on them every inning. We got runs early and held on.”

Spartans take 3 of 4 top spots

Lincoln East freshman Berlyn Schutz led a 1-2-4 finish in cross country for the Spartans in Saturday’s Titan Invitational at Papillion-La Vista South.

Jenna Muma was about 14 seconds behind her new teammate and Kylie Muma, her freshman sister, was fourth as East scored 22 points to 47 for Papio South.

Tyler Boyle and Trevor Acton went 1-2 as Lincoln Southwest won the boys title 22-43 over the Titans. Like East girls, the Silver Hawks captured five of the top 10 places.

At the Omaha Burke Invitational at Walnut Grove Park, boys champion Adam Murphy led Millard West to a win over the host Bulldogs. The girls winners were Allison Louthan of Millard North and Millard West, which edged Kearney by one point and Millard North by seven.
