Wilmot’s Zach Lamberson takes his run-scoring, stand-up double in stride during the second game of a doubleheader with Elkhorn (Jason Arndt/The Report).

The Wilmot Union High School baseball team split a doubleheader against Southern Lakes Conference opponent Elkhorn on May 4.

Meanwhile, on the same day, Westosha Central dropped two tightly contested games in a twin bill with Waterford.

For the Panthers, they won the first game 6-3 but lost 12-2 in the rubber match to stand 9-7 overall and 6-4 in conference.

“It was a role reversal in these two games,” Panthers’ coach Josh Pye said. “We played defense and hit in the first and Elkhorn hit and played defense in the second game.”

However, Westosha Central lost 2-1 and 9-8. The Falcons fell to 5-9 and 3-6 in SLC play.
