Loggerettes 9, Wildcats 8
WISHKAH — Sam Bernhardy’s RBI triple in the bottom of the seventh gave Wishkah a dramatic come-from-behind victory over Ocosta in non-league play Monday at Wishkah.
Down 8-2 after 4 1/2 innings, the Loggerettes (2-0) rallied to tie it with a four-run fifth and back-to-back homers by Teagan Louthan and Hannah Olson in the sixth.
Sophie Marchant was hit by a pitch in the Wishkah seventh. She stole second and third and cruised home with the winning run when Bernhardy unloaded her three-bagger to left field.
“In the fifth inning, we got our bats going,” Wishkah coach Tove Reibel said. “We have a really young team and they have to learn fast — on-the-job training.”
Wishkah’s roster includes six eighth-graders.
Pitching despite flu-like symptoms, Louthan struck out 11 but walked an uncharacteristically high eight.
Mikayla Sunde tripled and doubled and Tiana Parker doubled for Ocosta (0-2).
“My kids are fighting, but we’re struggling to find the plate when we need to,” Wildcat coach Jason Barnum said.
The Loggerettes visit North Beach on Wednesday. The Wildcats travel to Taholah on Thursday.

Eagles 10, Highclimbers 0
ELMA — Sparked by a trio of triples, Class 1A Elma mauled Class 3A Shelton in a non-league game Monday at Eagle Field.
Regan Wollen and Izzy Cristelli ignited the Eagles (3-1) with back-to-back triples in the third inning to open the scoring. Brooke Goldsmith’s bases-loaded triple highlighted a six-run Elma fourth.
“The bottom of our order got on base and (Brooke) got them in,” Elma coach Janene Todd reported. “We came out a little bit slow with our bats (but) we finally got our timing down.”
Ashley Cooper and Goldsmith combined on a five-inning one-hitter.
The Eagles host Hoquiam in an Evergreen 1A doubleheader on Thursday.

Chitwhins 18, Acorns 12
TAHOLAH — A 10-run first inning helped propel Taholah past Oakville in a non-league game Monday at Taholah.
Taholah’s freshman pitcher Karlena Walther walked only one batter and struck out five. The Chitwhins, meanwhile, capitalized on 13 Acorn walks.
“We’ve been trying to teach our kids patience at the plate and good discipline,” said first-year Chitwhin head coach Frieda Waugh.”It was a good team effort for the win.”
After the first inning, Acorn batters Desirray Klatush, Heather Daniels, Natosha Lewis and Cydney McElvain combined for a total of 13 of Oakville’s 19 hits.
“The Taholah pitcher rattled us in the first inning and once we settled down, we played good ball,” said Oakville head coach Casey Doyle.
Waugh cited Desiree Markishtum for fine all-around play and freshman Walther for a good outing on the mound.
Taholah (1-1 after an 11-7 loss last week at Quilcene) travels to Hoquiam today to play the Grizzly junior varsity. Oakville (0-2) hosts Naselle on Wednesday.

Wahl and Cristian Ibarra hit doubles for the Wildcats (3-4). They also combined for seven RBIs, with Wahl collecting four.
Kevin Gardiner doubled for the Loggers (0-2).
“Our pitching was fantastic,” said Wildcat head coach Jason Quinby. “We threw only 51 pitches in five innings and a lot of those were strikes.”
Quinby commended Wahl and Bambauer for their fine work on the mound.
On Wednesday, the Wildcats host Mary M. Knight. The Loggers travel to North Beach that same afternoon.

Navigators 8, Elks 6
AMANDA PARK — Northwest Christian capitalized on Lake Quinault’s seven errors to topple the Elks in non-league play on Monday at Amanda Park.
The Elks (1-1) committed three of their errors in a four-run third inning.
The Navigators took the lead permanently after a two-run sixth inning. Those were their only two earned runs of the game.
Dalton Lines had three hits for the Elks.
“We have players who are being forced to play out of position right now, but there’s no excuse for some of the errors we’re making,” said Elks head coach Keith Samplawski. “It’s frustrating when you feel like you should compete a little better and you don’t.”
Samplawski cited Austin Peters for fine defensive play at third.
The Elks will travel to Florida and Georgia for their annual road trip later this week. They’ll visit Bell High School of Florida (about an hour from Gainesville) on Saturday afternoon.

The Aberdeen doubles teams of Rachael Schermer-Ali Morris and Jamie Peterson-Alex Schultz each won their matches in straight sets.
Chehalis, however, swept the singles and won the third doubles match.
Nevertheless, the Bobcats (0-2) demonstrated progress on all fronts.
“I was very impressed with the improvement in our singles matches and with the JV players,” Bobcat coach Ashley Kohlmeier said.

CENTRALIA — Grays Harbor College split four games in the Centralia Inter-Region Tournament last weekend.
The Chokers came from behind to beat Chemeketa, 5-4, and Skagit Valley, 4-3, on Saturday. They fell to Southwestern Oregon, 8-5, and Lower Columbia, 7-2, on Sunday.
Grays Harbor pitcher Jill Johnson helped herself considerably with a grand slam in the fourth inning to produce the winning markers against Chemeketa. She then blanked the Oregon club over the final three innings. Johnson finished with three hits.
The Chokers rallied from a 3-1 deficit against Skagit Valley. Erica Rydman singled and scored the deciding run on a wild pitch in the fifth inning. The Chokers had tied it by stringing together four straight hits in the fourth, with Amanda Anderson’s double, Jasmine Gilmore’s single and Shannon Glenn’s two-run single the key blows. Rydman and Glenn had two hits each for GHC.
Anderson slugged a three-run homer in the first inning against Southwestern Oregon, but a five-run fourth by SWOCC proved the difference. Anderson went 3-for-3 and Gilmore added two hits for the Chokers.
Lower Columbia, last year’s NWAACC runner-up, downed the Chokers in the final game of the tourney. Grays Harbor did all its scoring in the first inning, on RBI singles by Gilmore and Glenn. Anderson, Gilmore and Amanda Swarts had two hits each.
Choker coach Tom Sutera cited the relief pitching of Jenny Benn, who allowed only one run in four-plus innings against LCC.
The Chokers will be off until April 5, when they visit Green River.
