Thursday’s high-school softball highlights

Just a heads up that I’ll be posting the first Class 4A and 3A state softball rankings on Monday (and they’ll run in Tuesday’s paper). I’ve been making rounds of calls and sending out e-mails to get a sense of which teams are going to be strongest this season.

The weather hasn’t helped.

If you have input on the teams you think are top-10 worthy, feel free to let me know.

In the meantime, there were a few area games played Thursday, and here are the highlights:

Kentlake 12, Jefferson 4

Madie Brown was 3-for-4 with a double and two stolen bases and Kellie Nielsen had a pair of hits for the Falcons, who got a six-strikeout performance from Hanna Sauget. Jefferson, which committed seven errors, led 4-0 through three innings. Alyssa Keyes laced two hits for the Raiders.

Tahoma 11, Kent-Meridian 1 (5 innings)

Lauren Maulden went 2-for-2, driving in two runs, and Hayley Beckstrom blasted a solo home run to lead the Bears.

Kentwood 4, Kentridge 1

We didn’t get any Kentwood highlights, but I received some Kentridge stats that showed Hannah Overall with three hits and Jessica Torlai with two.

Puyallup 8, Beamer 3

Makenzie Pletcher provided a home run and single, driving in four runs.

Arlington 18, Jackson 7 (5 innings)

The Eagles’ 16-hit attack was keyed by Hayden Fields (3-for-4, two doubles, two RBI), Katelyn Botten (2-for-3, home run, double, four RBI), Haley Fields (2-for-4, double) and Rachel Dacklund (2-for-3). For Jackson, Dewey Davis and Jessica Roy both finished 2-for-3.
