Loggerettes 8, Hyaks 7
WISHKAH — Down 7-3 entering the bottom of the seventh inning, Wishkah scored five runs with two outs to knock off rival North Beach in this non-league contest on Wednesday afternoon.
With two outs, Emily Olson and Aleha Park hit back-to-back RBI doubles. Ally Ancich stroked an RBI single, then substitute Allison Cushing ended the game with a two-run double for the Loggerettes (12-2).
“We were struggling defensively to start the game,” Wishkah head coach Tove Reibel said. “The rally in the seventh brought us together and we fought hard to win it. It was nice to come out of this game with a win.”
Teagan Louthan picked up the win for Wishkah, striking out 14 and walking two. Cora Pope got the loss for North Beach (10-3), striking out three and walking one.
Coach Reibel cited Cushing for her focus coming off the bench late in the game to provide the game-winning hit.
On Monday, Wishkah hits the road to take on Forks in a doubleheader.

Kyle Standstipher’s pitching gem in the second game gave Hoquiam a 6-1 victory over Tenino and a split of their Evergreen 1A League doubleheader Wednesday at Olympic Stadium.
Tenino won the opening game by an identical 6-1 count.
The split relegated the Grizzlies (12-6, 13-6) to the league’s fourth seed and a date with top-ranked Woodland in the opening round of district competition at noon Tuesday at Castle Rock.
Standstipher threw a six-hitter, striking out 12, in the second game Wednesday.
“Kyle was spectacular,” HHS coach Steve Jump said. “Probably the best game I’ve seen him pitch since last season’s postseason.”
The Grizzlies provided all the necessary support with a four-run first inning. Singles by Josh Bishop and Jerod Steen, a walk to Blake Kelly and Joel Brydon’s run-scoring fielder’s choice grounder produced the first run. Tristan Stutesman then delivered a two-run single and later scored on a passed ball.
Kolton McKittrick limited Hoquiam to three hits in the opening game. The Grizzlies committed all four of their errors in the first four innings.
“Their pitcher did a great job,” Jump said. “Tenino played with a lot of enthusiasm and we couldn’t match that.”
Sammy Lowder’s single drove in Jack Skinner with Hoquiam’s lone run in the second inning.

Navigators 11, Wolfpack 0
AMANDA PARK — Matthew Thomas pitched a five-inning no-hitter as Northwest Christian blanked Twin Valley on Wednesday to end the Lake Quinault-Wishkah combine’s inaugural season.
The Navigators scored in every inning but the second in earning a tie with North Beach for the league title. In a coin flip conducted earlier in the day, Northwest Christian will be the top seed and North Beach second in district competition.
The Wolfpack ended its season with a 3-9 record.
Thomas struck out nine. Twin Valley’s Kobe Kalama and Gavin Baltzell came close to hits in the fourth inning, but their hard shots were right at the second baseman.

Aberdeen freshman Katie Cournoyer, elevated from junior varsity doubles to No. 1 singles, won her singles match in straight sets.

Bobcat junior Miguel Galeana placed fourth in the boys 400 meters. Aberdeen’s Sophie Hillebrant was fourth in the girls shot and teammates Savannah Stolen and Ashlynn Everson took fourth and fifth in the girls javelin.
Jeran Paris was sixth in the boys 3,200 meters, while Maddy Van Blaricom was sixth in the girls discus.
The meet was limited to those who had not qualified for subdistrict competition.

The Bobcats will compete in Tumwater’s Shaner Invitational on Friday.
