In a spring season where weather has been several teams' most formidable foe, no one's been bitten harder by inclement conditions than Centerville softball.

The Elks finally made their season debut Sunday at Gahanna Lincoln, falling 6-0 to the Lions (9-1).

Junior Ella Esterby pitched a shutout and doubled for the Lions, while fellow junior Nicole Waters homered and hit an RBI single.

Each team played a doubleheader Sunday, with Hebron Lakewood being the third team that spent the day in Gahanna.

Gahanna Lincoln went 2-0 on the day, Lakewood went 1-1 and Centerville started its season 0-2.
