Lady Raiders wrap up 2013 at state

The Lady Raiders made their second-ever trip to the state softball tournament last weekend.

The weather at the WIAA/Dairy Farmers of Washington/Les Schwab Tires 2013 2B State Softball Championships in Yakima did not cooperate on Friday, and all games were delayed till Saturday.

In the first game of the day, LR faced defending state champion Pe Ell, which showed no mercy to the Lady Raiders, defeating them 28-2.

The Ladies looked to rebound in the afternoon game against Asotin, which had lost their morning game to LaConner. But Asotin played strong and the Lady Raiders could not put runs on the board. LR lost to Asotin 19-1 to end their season.

The Lady Raiders finished with a 7-win, 16-loss overall record and did achieve a state berth in fastpitch softball. The LR team last made it to state in 1996, when LR competed in slowpitch softball.

With only one senior on this year’s squad, the Lady Raiders look to have a strong squad next season and hope to build off the state berth experience.

Coach Jamie Lezard did not respond to requests for comment by deadline.
