Coming within one out of a double no-hitter, Hoquiam swept aside Rainier, 15-0 and 17-0, in an Evergreen 1A League doubleheader Thursday at John Gable Park.
Bailee Bradley pitched a three-inning no-hitter in the opener. Hannah Hliboki threw 3 2/3 perfect innings in the second contest, before a two-out double in the fourth spoiled her no-hit bid.
Both games were shortened by the 15-run mercy rule.
Kayla Hilliard and Ellie Quercia had three hits apiece for Hoquiam (6-2, 10-3) in the first game.
Hilliard drove in five runs and Brandi Creviston hit an inside-the-park homer in the second contest. Rainier suited up only nine players.
“We went out and played good defense,” Hoquiam coach Keith Reynvaan said. “Our pitchers threw strikes and we were very patient at the plate.”
The Grizzlies host Tenino in another doubleheader Thursday.

Nick Camenzind allowed four hits over five innings to pick up the victory in the nightcap.

Wolfpack 7, Comets 6
WISHKAH — Jace Anderson pitched a five-hitter as Twin Valley withstood a late Naselle rally in a Pacific League game Thursday at Wishkah.
Anderson authored his first-ever complete game for the Wolfpack, striking out seven.
“Jace pitched exactly how we needed to pitch all year,” Twin Valley coach Keith Samplawski said. “He was changing speeds, he was hitting his locations. He was doing everything a pitcher does and he was really hitting his groove today.”
Kobe Kalama led the Wolfpack attack with three hits, including a lead-off triple that sparked a two-run Twin Valley first inning. Seven players contributed to the Wolfpack’s 10-hit attack.
Leading 6-3 after five innings, Twin Valley (3-7) caught a huge break in the sixth when a Naselle runner missed the plate while coming home on a bases-loaded walk. He was called out on appeal.
“That ended up being a huge part of the game,” Samplawski said.
The Comets scored twice with two outs in the seventh and had the potential tying run on third base when first baseman Jacob Gardiner caught a pop fly between the mound and second base for the final out. Gardiner was cited for his overall defensive work.
Twin Valley faces Ocosta today in a makeup game at Lake Quinault.

TRACK & FIELD
North Beach meet
OYEHUT — North Beach’s boys and Willapa Valley’s girls capitalized on outstanding weather conditions to take team honors at a multi-school meet Thursday at Ed Garity Track.
The Hyak boys, with 188 points, finished 46 ahead of runner-up Ocosta. Valley’s girls topped North Beach, 166-132.
With temperatures near the 80-degree mark, marks were very good for all schools.
North Beach honored its four seniors — Quay Sotomish, Carson Ketter, Chris Horn and Briason Moses — prior to the meet. The first two celebrated with multiple wins.
Sotomish established personal bests in all four of her girls events, winning the 100 hurdles and long jump and running strong legs on the 4x100 and 4x200 relays. The latter foursome was clocked in 1:54.1, falling just short of a school record.
Ketter won the 100 meters, ran on the winning sprint relay foursome and established a personal best in the boys javelin.
“The day belonged to our two seniors,” North Beach coach Bob Wiley said.
North Beach’s Caleb Bridge took the shot and discus. Wiley cited the performance of his male discus throwers, who swept the top five places.
Willapa Valley demonstrated its characteristic strength in the girls field events. Lauren Friese cleared 9-6 in the pole vault and the Vikings also received field-event victories from Kate Rockett in the javelin, Shania Barton in the high jump and Brooke Spoor in the triple jump.
Valley’s Matt Konigsberger took more than a second off his previous best in the boys 400 meters.
Taholah’s Jon Jackson, however, edged Konigsberger in a battle of reigning state champions in the javelin.
“I’m pleased with where we’re at in the season and the weather helped out a lot,” Viking coach Dave Ege said. “It was nice to go out to North Beach and not have it rain sideways and be 45 degrees.”
Ocosta’s Alex Herrera was a triple winner in the three jumps, clearing 6 feet in the high jump.
Wildcat coach Aaron Anderson commended McKenzie Ballo, who set a PR in the girls 1,600, and Luke Anderson, who doubled in the 800 and 1,600. Recovering from a quadricep injury, Anderson ran the 1,600 for the first time.

NASELLE — A strong effort by Raymond’s boys claimed this six-team small-school meet, while the South Bend girls stayed close to rival Northwest Christian, at Naselle on Thursday afternoon.
In hot weather that affected distance runners, but forced all of the competitors to adjust, the meet featured strong marks with postseason meets on the horizon.
Raymond’s Rayce Newman used the good weather and strong field to match or possibly break the school record in the 100-meter sprint — officially at 11.04 seconds electronically. Jesse Buchanan, in the mid-1990s, set the school record in the event at 11.1 seconds. Seagull coach Mike Tully described Newman’s effort as tying the school mark.
“Overall, it was nice to have some warm weather and get some good times and marks,” Tully said.
Tully cited Newman for his run in the 100m, along with Alex Vaca in the 400m; Hunter Borden for sweeping the hurdles, including a first-time run in the 110m high hurdles that beat his best time from last season; the boys 400-meter relay and Patty Rojas, who won the pole vault.
Makenzie Russell won the high jump and triple jump for South Bend in her first meet back from a knee injury. Head coach Steve Lazelle cited her, along with freshman A.J. Sanchez in the 300 intermediate hurdles and Spencer Case in wins in the javelin and high jump.
Wishkah head coach Bob Eager was pleased with his athletes, singling out freshman Will Fultz, who was third in the 100 and 200 sprints and anchored the Loggers’ second-place 400m relay team, and Ryan Anderson, who hit PRs in the 100, 200 and triple jump.
On Saturday, teams will send some individuals to the Shelton Invitational before returning to dual meet action at Raymond on Thursday.

ELMA — Montesano used superior depth to edge Elma, 226-230, in a Southwest Washington 1A League match Thursday at Oaksridge Golf Course. Rochester also participated in the match.
Elma’s Lauryn Keating predictably took medalist honors with a 38. The Bulldogs, however, had four players break 60, led by Madi Besaw’s 52 and Joa Yun’s 57.
“Those are by far our best individual scores of the season, so it was nice to see all the kids come together at the same time,” Monte coach Lloyd Aldrich commented. “I think they enjoyed the opportunity to play in some nice weather.”
