Elks 2, Acorns 1

OAKVILLE — Jeffrey Diggle’s two-run single to right field was Lake Quinault’s runs for the day and Richy Carlile made it stand up on the mound as the Elks survives a pitcher’s duel with Oakville in this District IV 1B independent contest on Wednesday.

Carlile scattered four Acorn hits, struck out 12 and walked two in the win. Sean Youckton, on the other side of the duel, struck out 15 Elks, walked one and gave up just two hits.

Both of the Elks’ hits came in the fourth inning — a lead-off single by Carlile and Diggle’s two-run single. Diggle drove in Carlile and Dalton Lines for the runs.

Sean Youckton had a lead-off triple in the second inning and he scored on a squeeze bunt from Trey Brown for a 1-0 lead.

“Both teams played well; we got one more timely hit than they did,” Lake Quinault head coach Keith Samplawski said. “Both teams should be proud of the way they played today. This was two very good teams playing each other.”

Cougars sweep

OLYMPIA — Aberdeen capped its Evergreen 2A dual meet season with a trip to Capital High School and picked up some solid marks and runs on Wednesday afternoon.

The Cougars used their depth to sweep the meets — 88-57 in the boys meet and 112-38 in the girls meet.

Poli Baltazar was Aberdeen’s lone individual double winner, claiming the 1,600 and 3,200-meter runs. Teammate Joseph Bowley claimed the 800m, while Brock Struthers won the javelin.

In the girls meet, Shayne Wilson continued her dominance in the javelin, with McKenzie Brooks wonning the 300 low hurdles.

“Even though it didn’t show in the score, it was one of those meets where we were very happy to be coaching the kids we have,” AHS head coach Sherrie Green said. “It was a good day. Many of the kids were in events they normally don’t run and we got a lot of good performances.”

On Saturday, a select group of Bobcats will go to the Shelton Invitational.
