Renegades end season at divisionals

The Stillwater Renegades’ season came to a close on Saturday after the team lost out of the double-elimination divisional tournament in Glasgow.  

The tournament began on a high note Friday morning as the Renegades rolled past the Great Falls Central Mustangs.

Stillwater’s offense was sparked by an Erin Campbell triple in the top of the third, and by the bottom of the fourth inning the Renegades were up 5-1.  The lead was only lengthened, and Stillwater continued on the championship side of the bracket with an 8-3 win.

Friday afternoon was a different story as the Renegades faced the Huntley Project Red Devils, a team unbeaten against Stillwater in the regular season.

The Renegades gave up a big inning early, and going into the top of the fifth the team found itself down 12-5.  In the next two innings Stillwater out-scored Huntley 5-1, but it was not enough.  The 13-10 loss to the Red Devils landed the Renegades in the consolation side of the bracket for the second day of the tournament.

On Saturday, Stillwater faced the Stillwater Fillies.  During the regular season, the teams split the two games they faced each other, with the Renegades coming from behind to win the first, and the Fillies handily wining the second.

Unfortunately for Stillwater, the team’s bats never seemed to warm up.  A couple runs in the fourth and again in the sixth put the Renegades within striking distance going into the last inning, down 7-4.  The Fillies then put up a big seventh inning, scoring four runs.  Stillwater was unable to come up with an answer, however, falling 11-4.

This second loss knocked the Renegades out of the bracket, ending any hopes of a trip to state one game short as only the top four teams advance.  The four teams representing the eastern division at state this week are: Glasgow, Huntley, Shepherd, and Great Falls Central.

The Renegades end their varsity season with a 7-11 record.

Coach John Smith felt his team played well overall at divisionals, simply giving away one pretty big inning per game that they were unable to come back from.

He said that it was a fun season, and a lot of valuable experience was gained for the sizable group of junior and sophomores on the team.

Both of the Renegade seniors will play ball in college – catcher Shelby McMillen at the University of Great Falls and shortstop Erin Campbell at Dawson Community College in Glendive.

Smith is proud of the seniors, and mentioned that while they will be tough to replace, both girls will have a great opportunity to play ball and reach success at the next level.
