Softball diamond notes: Mount Si JV falls in season opener and the rest of the cuts from last night, high school and college both……

Good Saturday morning. A lot to get to, but we start with diamond cuts.

We start with softball and Mount Si High School’s JV’s opened the season with a 14-1 loss yesterday up in Bothell against the Cougars at North Creek Park. Reese MacDonald homered for BHS, and Brooklyn Harrell went 2-3 with a double, two runs scored and five RBI’s. Mount Si stats were not reported.

The two teams meet again on Tuesday. Softball scores and highlights now with our high school coverage powered by Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

Kingco/Wesco 3A: Lake Washington 10, Lynnwood 0 – LW’s Jane Wilson fired a two-hitter in the circle for the Kangs as the Kingco team handled the Wesco’s Royals at home in Kirkland. Lilly Bean doubled twice as part of a 3-4 effort leading L-Dub, driving in two runs, and Jamie Pippin added a triple and two runs scored to the Kangs cause. Haley Johnson and Alex Rieflin had the two hits for Lynnwood.

Wesco 4A/3A: Jackson 10, Everett 1 – Some of the Wesco Conference’s top pitching was on display in this one yesterday up in Everett, but it turned one-sided fairly quickly in the Timberwolves’ favor thanks to Macy Tarbox, who doubled twice, scored a run and drove in four more. Pitcher Iyanla Pennington fired a one-hitter striking out 18 Everett hitters, and she bested the Seagull duo of Kassidy Millar and Andrea Hedington, two of the best Wesco 3A will offer this spring in the circle. Hedington allowed six runs, three earned, on four hits in 4 1/3 innings of work, with the lone Everett hit being by Kendall Tebatebai.

Wesco 3A: Nathan Hale 6, Shorecrest 5 – Metro’s Hale rallied from an early 3-0 hole to stun the Wesco’s Scots at home in Shoreline. Narissa McDuffie led Shorecrest, going 3-4 with a triple, run scored and RBI.

Kingco 3A: Kentlake 16, Liberty 0 – The Falcons put this one to bed early with 10 first-inning runs as they rolled over the Kingco’s Patriots at home in Covington. Samantha Garcia and Lauren Collins were among the players with hits for Liberty.

Kingco 4A/3A: Inglemoor 8, Juanita 7 – Mary Fletcher was the heroine for the Vikings last night as she singled in the bottom of the seventh to score baserunner Kennadi Wuebel with the walk-off run for the black and gold at home in Kenmore, and this came after she also homered in the contest. Fletcher finished 2-2 with two runs scored and four RBI’s leading Inglemoor. Sophia Fike paced the Vikings going 4-4 with a run scored. Lauren Moreau tripled and scored a run to pace the Rebels.

Kingco 3A: Cleveland (Seattle) 15, Mercer Island 0 – Chloe Larson and Emily Rowe each had two hits for the Islanders as they were blown out at home by the Metro League’s Eagles on Mercer Island.

Wesco 4A/3A: Kamiak 10, Meadowdale 7 – Kateyln Sonnischen led Kamiak, going 2-3 with a double, run scored and three RBI’s as the Knights won the Wesco cross-classification clash at Meadowdale High School in Lynnwood. Kelci Studioso homered for the Mavericks, as part of a 3-3 effort. She scored two runs and drove in two more.

Wesco 3A/4A: Arlington 11, Cascade (Everett) 1 – The 3A’s Eagles won this Wesco cross-class clash at home in Arlington over the 4A’s Bruins. Tia Langley went 3-4 with a run scored and three RBI’s pacing Arlington, while Katherine Tsoukalas went 3-4 with two doubles and three RBI’s aiding the winning Eagle efforts. Ariel Rogers went 1-3 with a RBI for Cascade.

Wesco 3A/4A: Snohomish 6, Glacier Peak 4 – The Snohomish city battle goes to the Panthers this year despite the efforts of Ashley Jacobson for GP. She homered and doubled as part of a 3-3 effort to lead the Grizzlies.

Wesco 3A: Archbishop Murphy 15, Seattle Prep 2 – Brooke Jordan powered Murphy to the home rout of the visiting Panthers, homering twice, scoring four runs and driving in three more, and Alohi Elliot also added to the onslaught for the Wildcats, going 3-4 with two doubles and a triple, scoring four runs and driving in another. Meredith Lamb went 1-2 with an RBI for Prep.

Wesco 4A: Mariner 18, Concrete 1 – Mackenzie Graham went 3-3 with a triple, four runs scored and three RBI’s for the Marauders as they rolled to a non-conference win at home in Everett over the visitors from the upper Skagit Valley. Alexis Slater went 2-2 with a run scored and four RBI’s as well for Mariner.

Kingco 3A: Bellevue 12, Kentridge 2 – Montana Jones homered and Kelly Treves added a 3-4 effort with a pair of triples, two runs scored and four RBI’s as the Wolverines handled the Chargers at home in Bellevue.

Got some housekeeping on the college front this morning, with a pair of NWAACC doubleheaders from Thursday which included Valley athletes. Highlights:

Skagit Valley 9, Pierce 8 (game one, doubleheader): Skagit held on for the win in the first of two at home in Mount Vernon. Sophomore Morgan Brown, from Duvall and a 2017 Cedarcrest HS grad, allowed six runs, five earned, on eight hits in three innings of work, striking out one and receiving no decision for the Cardinals.

Bellevue 11, Shoreline 3 (game one, doubleheader): Sophomore Maddy Trout, from North Bend and a 2017 MSHS grad, went 1-3 with a walk and RBI for Bellevue as they rolled to the win in the first of two at home at Robinswood Park in Bellevue.

Skagit Valley 18, Pierce 3 (game two, doubleheader): 10 first-inning runs lifted the Cards to the nightcap win and doubleheader sweep. Brown had an uneventful – and perfect – inning of work in the circle in this one for Skagit, again receiving no decision.

Bellevue 12, Shoreline 4 (game two, doubleheader): BC cruised to a nightcap win and twinbill sweep of the Dolphins. Trout caught this one for Bellevue with no official at-bats recorded.
