Swain pops two out of yard for Inglemoor in softball rout of Mount Si, plus all the high school and college ladies’ diamond action of note from last night on this Thursday morning…..

Mount Si High School’s softball ladies ran into a buzzsaw known as the Inglemoor Vikings last night, or more specifically, senior Sophia Swain.

Swain hit two homers, one a grand slam, and drove in seven runs last night, aiding Inglemoor’s 17-6 win under the lights at home in Kenmore. Swain finished the game 3-4 with the two homers, three runs scored and seven RBI’s, and Hannah Shimek pitched in a 2-3 effort, scoring three times and driving in another run.

Mackenzie DeKay was the winner in relief for the Vikings (3-0 league, 6-1 overall), allowing one hit and striking out five over 2 2/3 innings of work in the circle for black and gold. Heather Hinton homered for the second straight game for Mount Si leading the Wildcats; she went 2-2 and drove in four runs to pace scarlet and gray. Maddy Trout also went 2-2, walked twice and scored two runs to aid Mount Si’s efforts.

The Wildcats, now 1-3 in Kingco and 3-4 overall, are at Spanaway Lake to complete their non-league schedule tonight. First pitch is at 5:00 p.m. at Spanaway Lake High School.

Here’s the softball scoreboard from last night.

High School
Kingco 4A-Skyline 2, Eastlake 1 (8): Round one of the Plateau rivalry series went to extras last night after the two teams finished regulation scoreless. Skyline took care of business with their two runs in the eighth innings. Lauren Lo went 2-4 with a run scored to lead the Spartans (2-0 Kingco 4A, 4-2 overall), while Caroline Bowman and Taylor Juenke both had RBI’s pacing green, silver and white. Bowman outdueled Eastlake star ace Julie Graf as both pitchers went the distance in the circle; Bowman allowed one unearned run on five hits, striking out eight, while Graf allowed two runs on four hits, striking out 13. Georgia Robinson doubled and drove in a run to lead the Wolves (2-2 league, 4-3 overall).

Kingco 4A-Redmond 5, Bothell 1: Mara Kipnis homered, doubled, scored a run and drove in three runs to lead the Mustangs to a home win over the Cougars at Hartman Park in Redmond. Rachel Robinson and Lindsey Tsujikawa both had two hits apiece as well to pace RHS, and all of that offense aided Redmond pitcher Kiki Milloy, who picked up right where she left off from Monday’s strong relief appearance in the circle against Mount Si. Milloy went the distance last night, firing a one-hitter and striking out nine. Amber Powers’ double was the lone Bothell hit. Redmond moves to 3-1 league, 4-3 overall with the win, while Bothell drops to 1-3 in conference, 3-4 overall with the loss.

Kingco 4A-Woodinville 17, Newport 2: The Falcons routed the Knights in Bellevue behind a 3-4 effort from Bailey Burger-Moore in which she scored twice and drove in four runs. Skylar Hein had two doubles for Woodinville as part of a 3-5 performance, and Paige Grover added a triple as part of a 2-3 effort in which she scored a run. Taylor Woodey had two hits, including a double, to lead Newport (0-4 Kingco, 1-5 overall). Olivia Riener went the distance in the circle for the Falcons (2-0 league, 4-1 overall), allowing two runs – one earned – on five hits, striking out three, and earned the win.

Kingco 3A-Lake Washington 30, Liberty 0: Not a misprint, folks, this was the actual score in Kirkland as the Kangs scored 21 runs in the second inning alone and cruised to the win, remaining unbeaten in league play at 5-0, 5-2 overall. Tori Bivens did much of the damage, too – at the plate, she was 3-3 with two doubles, a walk, four runs scored and five RBI’s to lead LW, and in the circle, she pitched three innings of one-hit ball, striking out six. Sydney Baity had that lone hit for Liberty, now 1-3 in league, 1-4 overall.

Kingco 3A-Juanita 13, Mercer Island 5: Kristina Warford went 3-4 with three runs scored and three RBI’s, also walking once, to lead the Rebels over the host Islanders at South Mercer Playfields. Briar Swayne added two hits, a walk, a run scored and RBI to the JHS cause as the Rebels (3-2 league, 3-4 overall) kept pace with Bellevue for second place in the league standings. Maddie Rowe went 2-2 with a triple and run scored to lead MI (2-3 league, 2-4 overall), while Jessica Ramseyer and Dana Berejka also added two hits each to the Islander cause. Rowe and Juanita’s Eden Radke both went the distance in the circle for their respective sides, with Radke getting the win allowing five runs – four earned – on nine hits, striking out three.

Kingco 3A-Bellevue 12, Sammamish 10: The Wolverines (3-2 league, 3-3 overall) won the slugfest at home over a game Totems team, behind a triple, three runs scored and an RBI which came from Stuart Buxton as part of a 2-4 effort, and a double, two runs scored and four RBI’s from Kama Boswell, who went 2-3. Maria Smith led Sammamish going 4-5 with a double, two runs scored and three RBI’s. Colette Liston also doubled, walked twice, scored two runs and drove in another to pace SHS (1-3 league, 2-3 overall).

College
Assumption 5, Merrimack 0: In the first of what was supposed to be two in Worcester, MA, the visiting Warriors were shut out only getting five hits. Junior Tamarra Crowe, from North Bend and a 2013 Mount Si HS grad, went 0-3 with one defensive assist playing outfield for MC. They held a 3-0 lead after 5 ½ innings in the nightcap game of the twinbill, but the game was suspended due to darkness and will be finished next week when the two teams meet at Merrimack’s home field.
