— Janesville finished fourth in its 5-Star Father’s Day American Legion tournament, which was won by Madison on Sunday.

Janesville lost to Sun Prairie, 5-0, Sunday morning, and then fell to Beloit, 11-2, in the third-place game Sunday afternoon.

“We faced some pretty good pitching,” Legion coach Bob Schenk said. “(Jameson) Lavery is good, and (Adam) Bihun was Madison Memorial’s best pitcher. We just didn’t hit.”

Bihun allowed just a single by Justin Graham a seven-inning shutout.

Lavery allowed six hits in the third-place game, and Beloit used a six-run third inning to take control.

“Our pitching was very good during the weekend,” Schenk said. “I’m very happy the way the kids are pitching. Our hitting will come around.”

Injuries have sidelined four pitchers who Schenk counts on for innings.

“I don’t think Wyatt Olson has pitched since Little League,” Schenk said.

Olson pitched the final inning against Beloit.

Will Theisen led the offense with two doubles, a run scored and an RBI.

Janesville, which has lost three straight games after opening the season with four victories, is scheduled to play at Genoa City on Wednesday.
