Down in Auburn, the Valley’s best U14 girls’ softball players are back at it……

Top U14 girls’ softball players from the Valley are back in action this weekend in local ASA club competition at Game Farm Park down in Auburn. Here’s a wrapup on yesterday’s play.

Hellervik accomplishes big feat for Flame Abraham
Mount Si High School freshman Tori Hellervik, who pitches for the Wildcat junior varsity team, will have something to tell her friends about tomorrow in the halls at school. Hellervik tossed a no-hitter yesterday for her team, the Issaquah Flame Abraham. The special performance came in the nightcap of their three games yesterday, against the Cloverdale Fury from north of the border in Canada. She struck out four in the three-inning no-no, as the Flame rolled to a 17-1 win. And Hellervik helped her own cause at the plate as well, going 2-2 with a double and run scored.

The Flame team split their other two games yesterday, beating the Washington Speed and falling to the Washington Explosion. In the 6-5 loss to the Explosion, North Bend’s Heather Hinton had two hits offensively, but had a mixed bag in the circle, giving up all six runs, four of which were earned, on just five hits.

The Valley strikes in a big way for Flame Zacher
The Issaquah Flame Zacher has four players from North Bend on its roster, and three of them combined to help their team score a win yesterday.

A fourth-inning double by North Bend’s Emily Webb with fellow Valleyites Bayley Barnett and Maddy Trout on base scored both of them, breaking a 2-2 tie and lifting the Flame Zacher to a 4-2 win over the Northwest Sidewinders. The win was one of two on the day for the Issaquah team; they also won their opener over the Blaze Dynamite 10-4, with Barnett throwing a nice game in the circle. The Mount Si freshman varsity pitcher pitched a complete game, giving up the four runs, all earned, on just four hits. Trout’s bat was the hot one among the Valley contingent in that game, as she had two hits, including a double, and drove in two runs in addition to scoring one herself. IFZ fell in their nightcap 4-1 to Lake Breeze out of Lake Stevens. The Valley foursome of Webb, Barnett, Trout and C.J. Howatson all went hitless in that game against one of the top clubs from Snohomish County.

Redhawks get huge efforts from Vogt
The Redhawks team from the Valley went winless in three games yesterday (two losses and a tie), but one player in particular had a good showing.

That would be Rose Vogt, a freshman from Mount Si. Vogt had the lone Redhawk hit in a 12-1 loss to the Washington Ladyhawks of Puyallup, then she had three hits, two of which were doubles, along with a run scored and run driven in, in a 9-6 Redhawks defeat to the Blaze Intensity. In that game, Cedarcrest High School’s Devin Gastelum had a triple and scored a run.

The nightcap proved to be a barnburner that ended in a draw. The Redhawks and Kirkland-based Northwest Ladysharks, who have several Mount Si players associated with them in their U18 Gold program, finished in an 8-8 tie, with Bear Creek School’s Michelle Kahue leading the way. She had two hits for the Redhawks, with a run scored and run driven in. Tolt Middle School’s Morgan Brown and Cedarcrest’s Hailey Lacher both doubled, and Brown drove in three runs.

Play is continuing today.
