Wildcat fastpitch news

Mount Si’s varsity fastpitch ladies have hit another rough patch in their season. The Wildcats have now fallen in three straight games after yesterday’s heartbreaking loss at Liberty.

The Patriots rallied from a 3-0 deficit with three runs in the sixth inning to tie the game, then scored once more in the bottom of the seventh to stun Mount Si 4-3.

Tamarra Crowe and Rachael Picchena both had two hits each to lead the Wildcat offense, and Picchena was among those who also drove in runs. Freshmen pitchers Rose Vogt and Bayley Barnett both pitched well, with Vogt giving up only one earned run on four hits in 5 2/3 innings, and Barnett giving up two runs in relief on four hits as well in approximately an inning. Vogt struck out two Liberty hitters.

Mount Si fell on Tuesday to Lake Washington 10-4, so yesterday’s loss pretty much ended their chances of getting a Kingco title. The Wildcats look to rebound today against Bellevue at BHS.

Wildcat JV on a roll
Mount Si’s junior varsity team is making waves this spring, and they did so again Tuesday, with a 17-0 rout of Roosevelt at Centennial Fields in Snoqualmie.

Abby Lord and Brooke Covello both had two hits apiece to lead the Wildcats, who scored 11 runs in the first and never looked back. Sara Fielder doubled and drove in three runs and Makayla Turpin tripled and brought in two herself to aid the efforts.

Natalie Luchtel went 1-3 with two runs scored and three driven in to pace Mount Si, who moved to 8-4 on the season with the win. In their last four games, all victories, the Wildcats have outscored foes 65-11, an over 5-1 ratio. That continued offensive success helps their pitching, who themselves does their part, as it did in this game. Wildcat hurlers Tori Hellervik and Emma Mischke combined on a two-hitter, with Hellervik starting in the circle and pitching three no-hit innings.
