Mount Si falls at Redmond on softball diamond despite homer from senior leader

A homer by senior Paige Wetherbee proved to not be enough last night for Mount Si High School’s softball team, as they fell 10-4 to the Redmond Mustangs at Hartman Park in Redmond.

The homer by Wetherbee came in the third inning and it was a three-run shot, also scoring her sister Lexi and teammate Rose Vogt, but Redmond, who had held the lead prior to the home run, responded with three runs of their own in that frame as well and cruised from there.

Kaija Gibson was 3-3 with a home run, three runs and two RBI’s to lead the Mustangs, and Sawyer Forseth added a double as part of a 2-4 effort; she scored a run and drove in two more.

Lauren Wilbourne was 2-4 with an RBI to pace the Wildcats, who were also stymied by defensive struggles; the team committed five errors on the contest. Claire Lis took the loss in the circle, allowing all 10 runs, of which just seven were earned thanks to the errors, on 12 hits in a complete game effort. She struck out one. Sophie Viola pitched a complete game win for Redmond, allowing four runs on six hits, striking out six.

Mount Si is home tomorrow against Inglemoor. Game time is 4:00 p.m. at Mount Si High School.
