Lady Raiders defeat Manson, lose to Okanogan


The Lady Raider softball team defeated Manson last week by 10 runs, then suffered that fate twice against Okanogan on Saturday.

At Grand Coulee, Lake Roosevelt defeated the Manson Trojans by 33-23 in a long game Thursday.

Sean Garvin pitched one inning when she threw 72 pitches for three strikeouts and nine walks. Kourtney Harrington took the mound for two innings and threw 85 pitches for six strikeouts and four walks. Cassi Palmer also pitched, hurling 83 pitches for five strikeouts and eight walks.

At the plate, Lake Roosevelt had 27 hits off 42 at bats for 33 runs. Lady Raiders also picked up 22 walks/hit by pitch free bases. LR recorded 31 of the 33 runs as RBIs.

Kiana Oliver hit five of seven at the plate with four runners batted in, a double and a triple. She also stole a base.

Savannah Marin was 1.000 at the plate, hitting four of four with five RBIs. Eighth-grader Kelsi Olbricht was six of seven at the plate with two doubles and five RBIs. Olbricht also stole a base.

In a doubleheader At Okanogan on Saturday, the Lady Raiders could not get anything going offensively. Both games ended in the third inning due to the mercy rule. In the first game LR lost 16-1 to the Bulldogs.

Kourtney Harrington pitched all three innings, throwing 110 pitches, striking out three and walking eight.

At the plate in the first game, LR had 13 at bats with seven hits, one run, and batted in one runner. Six Lady Raiders were left on the base path.

Head Coach Jamie Lezard highlighted three girls for their performance in the first game.

“Khani Priest and Savannah Marin both went 2-2 at the plate,” he noted. “Khani also did a great job behind the plate catching. She picked out a couple base runners for outs.”

Lezard said Olbricht “ also had a good game out in center field, catching everything hit her way for outs.”

In the second game, the Bulldogs shut out the Lady Raiders 18-0.

Cassi Palmer took the mound, throwing 102 pitches for three strikeouts and seven walks. At the plate the Lady Raiders were held to only 10 at bats and three hits.

Savannah Marin recorded two of the three hits, going two for two in the second game, with a steal.

This week, the Lady Raiders look to rebound with a home doubleheader last night against struggling Oroville. On Friday the Lady Raiders travel to Liberty Bell to play the successful Mt. Lions in a doubleheader starting at 3 p.m.
