Lady Raiders split with ACH

 


In their first win against ACH in 15 years, the Lady Raiders took the first softball game from the Warriors last Wednesday before losing the second contest in the doubleheader.

The Lady Raiders struggled early and were down by five before scoring seven unanswered runs to get the win, 7-5.

In the second game, Lake Roosevelt was hanging in there with the Lady Warriors when ACH went on an offensive explosion in the seventh inning, scoring eight runs and getting the 18-8 win.

“I am very proud of the girls for coming out and competing both games,” LR Head Coach Cassie Wendt said. “(Sean) Garvin played amazing defense in center, covering most of the outfield and tallying a diving catch.”

Garvin also hit on four of six occasions at the plate.

Wendt also praised Khani Priest for her offensive production and highlighted newcomer Rainy Dawn Vargas-Thomas for her debut performance.

“In the second game, Rainy Dawn Vargas-Thomas had some very nice hits,” Wendt noted.

Wendt is working on instilling “a sense of urgency” into the team’s defense.

“We are able to make great defensive plays, but are not always sure of where we are going with the ball,” something the team has been working on for this week’s games, she said.

Last night, the Lady Raiders took on the Soap Lake Eagles in the last non-league action in Grand Coulee.

On Saturday, LR takes on the Brewster Bears, who are on the top of the Central Washington 2B North League. Play starts at 11 a.m. in the doubleheader at Brewster. Coach Wendt looks for the Lady Raiders to impress at Brewster.

“We are hoping to play our best game there and come away with an upset,” Wendt stated.
