In Waterville on April 24, the Lady Raiders lost by one point, 6-5, in the seventh inning.

“They played well throughout but we weren’t making the same batting contact that we had in previous games, so we were lacking in offensive scores,” said LR Head Coach Alissa Mansker. “Defensively, we were able to stop most runs, only allowing five to score in six innings. Our pitching by Chasity Williams went great, with minimum walks. However, we lost in the seventh inning off of a defensive error, leading to a stolen run home for the winning score for Waterville.”

The Lady Raiders won both games against Soap Lake April 28 by landslides, with final scores of 27-4 and 22-2.

“We hit very well, with Mikaylah [Thompson] having a triple, Kyona [Edmo] with a triple and Chasity Williams with a double that hit the fence and led to two RBIs,” Mansker said. “Our team was hitting well, and defensively able to stop any hits on the other team from reaching base most of the innings.”

“Madisyn Toulou had an excellent defensive game at third base, making five plays in a row in the second game,” Mansker added. “Eighth-grader Desiree George also had a great two plays in left field.”
