Some high-school softball highlights from Tuesday

Less rain meant more softball games Tuesday and it looks like today will be even better!

Here’s one game you might want to go check out — Woodivinville (ranked No. 1 in 4A) at Juanita (ranked No. 4 in 3A) today at 4:30 p.m. Both are unbeaten.

In the game I was most interested Tuesday, No. 5 Holy Names beat No. 10 Bainbridge for the second time in eight days, this time 7-1. Sylvie Thomas tossed a two-hitter and got offensive support from Cara Lohman (2-for-4, 3B) and Riley Hughes (2-for-4, 2B).

And in a battle between two teams with flawless Seamount League records, Kennedy Catholic edged Highline, 10-9, despite committing seven errors. Halle Davis homered, singled and drove in three runs, while Angie Isernio and Miranda Goff both went 3-for-4 (Goff had a double). Highline’s Rayna McElwain finished 3-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored.
