Loggerettes 19, Chitwhins 3

WISHKAH — Wishkah’s Loggerettes completed an unbeaten Pacific/Coastal League season by trouncing Taholah in the league half of a scheduled league/non-league doubleheader Wednesday at Wishkah.

The Loggerettes (9-0, 12-0) led the non-league second game, 10-0, when it was called in the second inning due to rain.

Sierra Nations doubled twice and singled, while winning pitcher Teagan Louthan collected three singles to lead the Wishkah attack. Aaryn Marbut drove in four runs. The Loggerettes stole 18 bases on the day.

“I’m just really proud of my team,” Wishkah coach Tove Reibel said. “We had an undefeated league season and the girls put in a lot of time and effort to get that.”

The Loggerettes have scheduled non-leaguers at the Hoquiam junior varsity today and at Ocosta on Monday. Taholah fell to 0-6 and 1-9.

Bulldogs split

ROCHESTER — Scoring eight unanswered runs in the final four innings of the second game, Rochester knocked Montesano out of a share of the Evergreen 1A League title by splitting a doubleheader Wednesday at Rochester.

Montesano won the opener, 4-2, but lost the nightcap 10-5. The Bulldogs (11-3, 13-4) wound up second in the league, one game behind Elma.

Riann Melton drove in three runs to stake the Bulldogs to a 5-2 lead in the second game. The Warriors, however, blanked Monte over the final five innings while capitalizing on six Bulldog errors.

“We had no pitch selection and no execution at the plate from the third inning on and we had too many errors on defense to expect to win,” Bulldog coach Pat Pace said.

Staci Schneider pitched a four-hitter and Carli Cairone delivered a two-run single in a three-run fourth to give Montesano the nod in the opening game.

The Bulldogs will face Holy Names in a non-leaguer scheduled for Friday at the RAC complex in Lacey.

Grizzlies take two

Hoquiam got off to a slow start, but pitchers Jessica Madison and Bailee Bradley combined to limit visiting Forks to six hits in two games to sweep this Evergreen 1A doubleheader finalé, 10-0 and 15-0, at Gable Park.

In the opener, Madison struck out 12 as the Grizzly offense slowly pounded out 16 hits to win. Nicole Kilmer led HHS with four RBI on three hits, including a solo home run in the seventh inning to left field.

In the nightcap, Hoquiam (9-5, 9-5) exploded with Bradley in the circle — four home runs and 17 hits overall — in this four-inning affair. Bradley struck out five as Ellie Quercia had four hits, including a solo home run in the first inning and a grand slam to left-center in the third inning, and seven RBI.

Madison also had a solo home run in the first inning, getting the offense started for Hoquiam. Chelsy Stewart added an inside-the-park home run to right field in the second inning.

“I felt like we were going through the motions in the first game,” HHS head coach Keith Reynvaan said. “We got a jump-start with the solo home runs. From there, the kids starting swinging the bats and were more aggressive at the plate.”

On Friday, Hoquiam hosts Ocosta in a non-league contest.

All four athletes may have an opportunity to compete in the league meet next week, but spots won’t be determined until the league meeting later on.

ELMA — Elma’s Alexis Keating carded a brilliant 35 in soggy conditions during a three-school match Wednesday at Oaksridge Golf Course.

Montesano outshot Ilwaco, 315-342. Elma did not field a full team.
