CASTLE ROCK — South Bend won nine events in Castle Rock High School’s Gary Swanson Invitational on Saturday.

Rams 3, Bobcats 0
LACEY — Doing all its scoring in the third and fourth innings, North Thurston blanked Aberdeen in an Evergreen 2A Conference game Saturday at Lacey.
Reilly Fairchild went the distance on the mound for the Bobcats (10-7, 11-7), allowing seven hits. Aberdeen was limited to five hits.
“We did not get off the bus ready to play and had no fight left in us,” said AHS head coach William Rabung. “We were not mentally there and the team was tired after practicing or playing every day and every Saturday since the beginning of the season. We just ran out of gas. We had fought hard in every game prior to this one.”
“Unfortunately, this was a big, important game for us,” he added. “We could finish between second and fourth in the league.”
Aberdeen has two days off and then practices for a game at Chehalis on Thursday.

PUYALLUP — Pierce College got the early jump in both games in sweeping Grays Harbor College, 8-2 and 8-0, in an NWAACC Western Division doubleheader Saturday at Puyallup.
Lunden Young’s three-run homer highlighted a five-run first inning that put the Raiders in control in the opening game.
Savannah DeMoss and Angela Garcia had two hits apiece for the Chokers (8-7, 9-18).
Grays Harbor was limited to one hit — a second-inning single by Bailey Spurgeon — in the five-inning second game.
A six-run third inning put things away for the Raiders.
“We didn’t play good defensively or offensively,” Grays Harbor coach Tom Sutera said. “You can get away with a few errors on defense if you can pick it up with the bats. If you don’t do either one, it’s going to be a long day.”
The Chokers are scheduled to host Green River in a doubleheader Tuesday.
