Fastpitch: SHS crushes 3A Cougars, stay unbeaten

Bigger schools? No problem.

Sequim’s fastpitch squad earned a trio of wins last week, including a pair against 3A Kitsap schools, to remain undefeated in Olympic League play (2-0) and overall (6-0).

The Wolves capped the week with a 15-0 rout of Central Kitsap’s Cougars in a non-league match-up on March 26.

Hanna Bates was 3-for-3 with three runs scores, Christy Grubb batted 3-for-4 with a double and 2 RBIs, Lili Fili drove in three and Michaela Green had a home run in the win.

Angel Wagner tossed five shutout innings, giving up just three runs and striking out six. At the plate, Wagner drew three of Sequim’s eight walks.

Spurning the Spartans, Knights

Wagner earned the win on the mound for Sequim in an 8-4 home victory over 3A Bainbridge on March 22, as Sequim opened Olympic League play with a win.

“Christy Grubb hit the ball really well and Mia Pozernick had some hits for us,” Sequim coach Mike McFarlen said.

“We didn’t play our best, but a win is a win.”

The Wolves also picked up a big win at Bremerton on March 24, winning 22-1 in five innings.

The Wolves pounded out nine doubles, two triples and two home runs — along with 16 singles — in demolishing the Knights.

Senior second baseman Addie Smith homered, doubled three times and drove in five runs to lead the pack of hungry Sequim hitters.

Grubb also homered and doubled as part of a three-hit day, while Fili tripled and doubled and drove in four runs on four hits.

Pozernick and Katelyn Glass also had multi-extra base hit games with each batter hitting a pair of doubles.

Winning pitcher Lainy Vig helped her own cause with three hits and two RBIs.

Sequim was also scheduled to host North Kitsap on March 29 — results were not available at press time.

Coming up

The Wolves are at North Mason on March 31 just prior to Spring Break. They are back on the diamond at home against Kingston on April 12.

Sequim is at Olympic on April 14 and hosts rival Port Angeles on April 19.
