Local girls’ U14 fastpitch team plays three yesterday, and has mixed day

The Redhawks U14 girls’ fastpitch team from the Snoqualmie Valley was busy yesterday, with three games at Valley Ridge Park in Sea Tac. Here’s a quick wrap on those games.

Game 1: Redhawks fall to Ladyhawks
The Valley team opened play yesterday with a loss to the Puyallup-based club, whose older-age teams have featured Mount Si High School players in recent seasons. Morgan Brown of Tolt Middle School, Taylor Treado of Mount Si and Hailey Lacher of Cedarcrest High School had the Redhawks’ hits, but it was a tough one in the circle for their pitcher, Snoqualmie Middle School’s Claire Lis, who gave up all six runs on just three hits. Walks were not her friend, as she issued seven of those in her four innings of work.

Game 2: Redhawks and Flash engage in a slugfest that ends in a draw
The Redhawks and Flash bats both put on a hitting display in the second game, and the two teams finished in a 9-9 tie. Treado had two hits and scored three runs, and Brown had a hit, scored twice and drove in three more. Lacher also drove in three runs in addition to her two hits and one run scored. Bear Creek School’s Michelle Kahue had a nice game, with two hits, a run scored and a second run driven in, and Lis rebounded from her tough opening game to get a hit in this second contest and score a run.

Brown pitched the game for the Redhawks, and of the nine runs she gave up, only three were earned as the ‘Hawk defense committed three errors on the game. Brown struck out five Flash hitters.

Game 3: Redhawks fall to Lady Pirates
A balanced offensive attack was not enough for the local girls as they fell 6-2 in their nightcap to the Lady Pirates. Lis was in the circle for the Redhawks and had a mixed showing; she gave up all six runs on six hits in 4 2/3 innings, but struck out 10 Flash hitters. She, however, walked eight hitters.

Offensively, Treado, Brown, Lacher, Maddie Nixon of Tolt Middle School, Rachel Kent of Cedarcrest High School and Mount Si High School varsity player Rose Vogt all had hits for the Redhawks. Nixon and Brown drove in a run each, while Treado and Issaquah player Sienna Otley scored the two runs for the Valley team.
