Maxwell stars in Camden's 6-3A softball win

Lauren Maxwell tossed a one-hitter with 15 strikeouts and just one walk as Camden opened the Region 6-3A softball campaign with an 8-1 win over Wilson Thursday in Florence.

Hannah Jackson had two o hits and one RBI for the Bulldogs. Camden managed just four safeties against Wilson pitcher Lauren Burt, who also had 15 strikeouts but was plagued by control problems and shoddy defensive support. Burt issued seven walks in the game, and Wilson’s defense was charged with eight errors.

Camden (2-1, 1-0) hosts Lakewood on Friday in another 6-3A outing.
