Here are highlights from Tuesday’s high-school softball games:
Emerald Ridge 9, Rogers 8 (8 innings)
I was anxious to see the final as I have ER ranked No. 6 in Class 4A and really debated about whether it should be Rogers. Obviously the two teams are pretty evenly matched. The Jags smacked 17 hits, including three apiece by Hope Jones, Stephanie Riley, Chelsey Hayes and Megan Hendrix, who also went the distance on the mound and stranded the potential tying run at second base. Jones had a single, double and triple.
Puyallup 13, Bethel 2
Makenzie Pletcher and Bailey Plumb both were 2-for-3 for the No. 9 Vikings and Kylie Perez popped a home run.
Tahoma 5, Kentridge 0
Haley Beckstrom went 3-for-3 with a double, scoring twice, and Lauren Maulden had a double and three RBI for the No. 8 Bears. Jordan Walley allowed two hits in five innings.
Jefferson 10, South Kitsap 7
We somehow had a report that Jeferson had forfeited to Beamer Tuesday. Actually, the Raiders beat South Kitsap on the road, 10-7, behind the offensive efforts of Michaela Patton (2-for-3, triple, three runs), Bailey Rundle (2-for-3, triple, three RBI) and Lexi Goranson (2-for-3, two runs, two stolen bases).
Mount Rainier 3, Auburn 2
Jasmin Fulmore homered and struck out seven in five innings to get the win. Tristen Yong went 2-for-2 with a double.
Spanaway Lake 7, Graham-Kapowsin 6
