Bobcats 5, Wolves 1
TUMWATER — Aberdeen’s tennis players began a four-day, four-match march through the Evergreen 2A on Monday by sweeping the doubles and coming away with a victory over Black Hills.
All six matches ended in straight sets, with AHS head coach Ashley Kohlmeier noting the improvement of play between the first and second sets in all of the matches won by the Bobcats.
“That was pivotal,” Kohlmeier said. “The adjustments were really evident in the winning matches.”
Kohlmeier cited Claire Tangvald for her adjustments in a 6-4, 6-1 win over Alesha Rebetzer in the No. 3 singles.
Today, Aberdeen (2-3) stays home to take on Capital.

Chokers, Gators split
AUBURN — Justin Altmeyer needed to get out of a few jams, but his complete-game performance for Grays Harbor helped the Chokers earn an NWAACC Western Division doubleheader split with Green River Community College on Sunday.
Altmeyer struck out three and scattered 10 hits in the Chokers’ 6-1 win over the Gators. In the second game, a seven-inning affair, GHC’s lone error allowed Green River to score five runs in the third inning in an 8-3 win.
“(Justin) had great command on both his fastball and off-speed pitches,” GHC head coach Curtis Eccles said. “He got some run support, which was nice to see. We utilized some of their errors to manufacture some of those runs.”
The Gators, who had six errors in the first game, loaded the bases twice in the game, but Altmeyer got out of the jams without damage.
In the nightcap, a two-out error by GHC extended the third inning and Green River got a three-run double on the next pitch to take control of the contest.
Tyler Busch took the loss in the second game.
GHC (3-7, 5-22) hosts Green River in a doubleheader today at Pioneer Park.

Loggers 16, Owls 6
WISHKAH — Scoring in every inning but the fourth, Wishkah notched its first victory by trouncing Mary M. Knight in a non-league game shortened to six innings by the 10-run mercy rule.
Chris Thein had three hits, while Keigan Gardiner tripled and doubled for the Loggers (1-4).
“It was a good opportunity for them to get a win in the book and get some confidence for the rest of the season,” Wishkah coach Travis Warren said.
The Loggers are scheduled to visit the Elma junior varsity today.

Hyaks 7, Navigators 5
LACEY — Kaleb Towery and Carson Ketter each drove in two runs and Josh Takagi threw a complete game as North Beach held off Northwest Christian in this Pacific League contest at the RAC Baseball/Softball Complex in Lacey.
Takagi earned the win, striking out four and walking seven, as the Hyaks (3-4) shuffled their lineup due to academics claiming some players on the team.
“We just told them to go out and have fun,” North Beach head coach Rob Schreiber said. “We had guys playing out of position (due to the missing players). They swung the bats and put the ball in play. Defensively, we made the outs and the plays we needed to. The kids played well, the best they’ve played all year.”
Michael Beck led the Hyaks with three hits, with Justin and Jordan Chong and Tyler Turner adding two hits each. Justin Chong also had a double.
On Thursday, North Beach hosts Ocosta.

NASELLE — Caleb Tackett pitched 6 2/3 of scoreless relief in the second game to help Ocosta split a Pacific League doubleheader with Naselle on Tuesday.
The Wildcats rallied for a 6-4 victory in the nightcap after dropping the opener, 13-4. They had trailed 11-1 in the earlier contest before the game was suspended last month due to rain.
Ocosta rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the second game after losing Alex Campos, one of their top all-around players, to a knee injury on the final play of the opener.
Tackett allowed only three hits after relieving starter Kurt Bambauer in the first inning.
“He pitched awesome and everybody contributed,” Ocosta coach Jason Quinby said. “I’m really proud of the guys. They pulled together and pulled one out for Alex.”
Eight Wildcats contributed at least one hit in the second game, with Nate Krigbaum and Leeroy Rindlisbacher collecting three hits apiece.
Krigbaum homered in the first game before play had been suspended.
The Wildcats travel to North Beach on Thursday.
