Lady Raiders win one of four


Lady Raider softball had a tough week, winning only one of four games last week.

“We had too many defensive errors this week,” Head Coach Cassie Wendt said.

In a doubleheader against Oroville, the Lady Raiders committed 13 errors against the Hornets, then six against the Mountain Lions.

Though the team did improve by reducing the number of errors, Wendt said, “We cannot expect to win games when we give the other team that many opportunities.”

In the first matchup, April 19 in Oroville, the Hornets just held off the Lady Raiders in the first game, 12-11. In the second game, the Hornets really outscored the Lady Raiders, 13-3.

Coach Wendt said Gloria Michel “pitched well against Oroville.”

At Liberty Bell on Friday, the Lady Raiders and Mountain Lions were close in the first game. The Lady Raiders held off Liberty Bell to win the one-run game, 8-7.

“Coming back from a six-run deficit against Liberty Bell, we showed a lot of good character and fight,” Wendt said.

In the second game, the Mountain Lions exploded with a 21-run offense, defeating the Lady Raiders by over 10 runs, 21-9.

“We also had some very good defensive innings; however, we need to put all our good defensive and offensive innings together to make a complete game,” Wendt said.

She noted that “Tristan Adolph and Kourtney Harrington pitched very well.”

Last night the Lady Raiders hosted the Pateros Nannies for senior night in Grand Coulee. Saturday, the Lady Raiders will travel to Manson for a doubleheader starting at 11 a.m.

“We expect to compete against Pateros and Manson,” Wendt said. “Neither games are out of reach for us.”

She also commented on injuries that have affected the Lady Raiders. “We also hope to all be fully healthy and in the lineup as over the course of the last three outings we have been missing many starters for various reasons,” Wendt noted.

For the final games of the regular season, the Lady Raiders will go to Tonasket May 3 for a doubleheader starting at 3 p.m.
