Warriors overcome wind and Lady Wolves with pitching and offensive blowouts


Andrew Christiansen

SAFE: A Warrior runner slides safely under the tag of Goldendale catcher, Kiera Henderson during Saturday action.

Warrior pitching overpowered Goldendale's Lady Timberwolves on Saturday, leading to a Cle Elum-Roslyn 27-1 and 12-0 sweep in the SCAC west games.

Sami Sweigard struck out seven Timberwolves on a windy morning in Goldendale. Samantha Nunn singled in Sabrina Payne in the second inning for Goldendale's only run and Sierra Lamping singled in the fifth for the only other Timberwolf ball to leave the infield. Solid defense behind Sweigard gunned down runners on six ground balls. Sweigard also got it done with the bat, driving in five runs and reaching base four times, including on a triple in the right-center field gap.

The Lady Wolves got more bats on the ball in game two after Coach Chris Barthlow instructed the girls to be more aggressive at the plate, taking cuts at first pitches. It generated more hits, but no runs. Kailey Garrigus was 2-3 for Goldendale and Klarissa Hilkey had a three RBI game for the Warriors.

Goldendale played a make-up double-header against River View in Goldendale on Tuesday. Next up is a double-header at Zillah on Saturday at 11 a.m.
