The Skyview softball team was swept by host Kodiak on Friday and Saturday in Northern Lights Conference play.
With a 17-4 loss Saturday and an 11-1 loss Friday, Skyview drops to 1-2 in the conference and 2-5 overall. Kodiak is 5-1 in the conference and 5-5 overall.
Saturday’s game went five innings.
Sam Reynolds was 3 for 3 with a run, while Cat Schoessler was 2 for 3. Bree Lahndt, Mykaela Ryback, Jessie Lester and Kristen May added hits.
“We hit a little better, but we’re not making as much contact as we should,” Skyview coach Steve Schoessler said. “We had eight strikeouts last night and eight strikeouts today.
“I’ve never had a team with eight strikeouts before in three years. There’s something going on with the bats and we’ve got to figure it out.”
Reynolds took the loss on the mound.
Skyview travels to Homer on Tuesday for a 6 p.m. game.
