Fastpitch: SHS rebounds with wins
Senior Alexas Besand and her fellow Wolves aren’t going to let a little thing like a loss to rival Port Angeles spoil their season.
Sequim’s fastpitch squad rebounded from a 5-0 loss to Port Angeles on April 28 with a pair of key Olympic League wins, including a come-from-behind victory at upstart Olympic.
Down 4-2, the Wolves exploded for six runs in the fourth inning and knocked off the Trojans on April 30. Besand started things off in the fourth with a solo home run and was 2-for-2 in the inning. Tia Bourm had a two-RBI single and Olivia Kirsch added a run-scoring single. Shelby Lott added a solo home run in the sixth. Sequim starter Makayla Bentz struck out eight and gave up five hits in seven innings.
Sequim followed that with a 22-4 thrashing of North Mason at home on May 2. Besand was 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and five RBIs, Lott had three hits, Kirsch drove in four runs while Melissa Lewis and Alysen Montileus drove in two runs each.
Lewis picked up the win on the mound, going three innings, and Kirsch tossed two innings of two-hit, three-strikeout ball.
North Mason committed nine errors and Sequim knocked around Bulldog pitchers for 14 runs in the third inning alone.
Sequim head coach Mike McFarlen said the girls responded well to the P.A. loss.
“They decided to start hitting the ball,” he said.
Sequim was scheduled to host Bremerton on May 5 — results were not available for this section. The Wolves get a rematch with rival Port Angeles on the road on May 8.
Against Port Angeles, McFarlen said his team knows how to hit, they just need to relax and play the best they can.
