Four-win streak keeps Raider Ladies softball team hopeful


The Lady Raiders won four games last week, which moved them into the number-four spot in the Central Washington 2B North standings.

If they remain there, they will have a berth to the district tournament at the Ephrata Fastpitch complex starting May 14. Last night the Lady Raiders played at Tonasket in the season-ending doubleheader.

Lake Roosevelt hosted the Pateros Nannies for Senior Night April 26, when the Nannies did not put up much of a fight in the first game, which ended 16-1 for LR. But the Nannies’ bats came alive in the second game, and the Lady Raiders had to play hard to keep the 11-9 win.

In Manson Saturday, the Lady Trojans were handily defeated in LR’s best offensive performance in over a month. The Lady Raiders won the double header 25-2, and 16-5.

With LR ending its season earlier than other league schools, they will have extra practice time for districts. It means they will have to wait and see where they finish in the standings and seeding for the district tournament.

If the standings remain as they are, the Raiders could be the number-four seed from the North on the 14th, playing at 1 p.m. in Ephrata against the undefeated Warden Cougars. A win or loss against the Cougars would have the Lady Raiders playing against either Okanogan or the South’s number-four team at 5 p.m.
