Columbus High lost a pair of games and Lakeview also stumbled in its softball opener last night. 

Playing a doubleheader at Lincoln North Star, the Discoverers were edged 6-5 in the opener and were out-slugged 11-9 in the nightcap.  Columbus has another twinbill on tap next Tuesday at Lincoln Southwest.

Meantime, Grand Island Central Catholic used a five-run second inning to down Lakeview 7-5.  The Vikings out-hit the Crusaders 12-4, but Lakeview left nine runners on base.  The Lady Vikes will compete in tomorrow’s Freeman Invitational at Lincoln.
