Saranac 7, Saranac Lake 0

SARANAC — Kourtnie Campbell went the distance, tossing 14 strikeouts in a shutout performance for the Chiefs.

Saranac scored six of its seven runs through the first three innings.

“We got some hits early and ran the bases fairly well,” Chiefs coach Sam Campbell said. “I was very happy with Kournie’s performance on the mound. I thought she located the ball well. She was a little off (Monday), but was able to bounce back.”

Ashley Terry slapped three hits, including a double, while sophomore teammate Summer Gillespie added two hits, including a double.

Saranac travels to Ticonderoga today for its third game in as many days.

“At this level, it’s a tough thing to do, especially with the bus ride,” Campbell said. “I’m hoping we’ll be ready.”

The Red Storm registered four hits, but no player accounted for multiple hits in the contest.

Brittany Tschirhart was tagged with the loss.
