Summit baseball loses

to Conifer

DENVER – The Summit High School baseball team lost 8-4 to Conifer Saturday at All Star Park in Denver.

Conifer started out strong, scoring seven runs in the first three innings. The Tigers saved their momentum for the last four, but it was too late.

“We had a couple early opportunities we didn’t capitalize on,” said Summit coach John Padjen. “Once we fell down, we played a little better. We scored four runs in the last two innings. If we would have capitalized earlier, it could have gone the other way.”

Casey Anderson continued his scoring role from the Tigers’ 14-9 win against Jefferson Friday. He followed through Saturday hitting two for four, including one with bases loaded for three RBIs. Kylor Dossett also had a good game, hitting two for three with one double and an RBI.

Tiger pitcher Garrison Green pitched the final four innings and gave up four hits and one run.

The Tigers are 1-6 for the season and seeded eighth in the Jefferson County 4A Conference. They play a double-header Monday against Englewood and Alameda.

The SHS girls 400-meter relay team also took third and Brittany Adamson took second in the girls triple jump. The track team competes again at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday against Elizabeth.
