Sequim coach Michael McFarlen said his team played well defensively and pitched well, but simply could never get any offense going against either Port Angeles or North Kitsap as the Wolves dropped a pair of games at the season-culminating Olympic League tournament on May 1.
Lainey Vig pitched the North Kitsap game, giving up just the two runs, usually enough for a powerful Sequim squad, but NK emerged with a 2-1 win.
Sequim had won a pair of thrillers earlier this season against the Vikings this year, a 12-11 decision on April 3 and 6-2 on April 21.
Vig pitched another four innings against Port Angeles, as the Roughriders topped Sequim 6-2 to place third in the tourney. While Sequim played their rivals much closer, Port Angeles made it a season sweep of Sequim; PA topped the Wolves 11-6 on March 30 and 13-2 on April 17.
Bainbridge, despite being seeded fourth, topped NK for the league title.
It was a successful year for the Wolves, McFarlen, who went 10-4 in league play and 10-6 on the season, showing off a high-powered offense that posted nine games in double figures.
“We got some games in (and) we have a lot of girls coming back next year,” McFarlen said. “It should be fun.”
Sequim closed its season home and road schedules with victories earlier in the week, routing Bainbridge — the eventual league champs — 13-3 and class 3A Central Kitsap 5-4 on April 28.
Against Bainbridge, the Wolves got getting four RBIs from Greta Christianson, a 3-run home run from Jayla Julmist and a bases-loaded 3-run triple from Lily Fili.
Christianson went 2-for-3 on the day. Kiana Robideau went 2-for-3 and Kailyn Lopez went 2-for-2.
Vig pitched the entire five-inning game, picking up the win.
