Lake Washington High’s fastpitch softball pounced on the Hawks from Mountlake Terrace to open the 2019 campaign with an 8-5 win on March 11.

The Kangs took an early lead and never trailed, with a two-RBI double from freshman Lilly Bean to open the scoring. Run-scoring hits by junior Haley Brown in the second, and a triple by sophomore Maliena Carelli in the third extended the lead to 6-2. Brown, Carelli, juniors Anna Fridell and Amy Chen, sophomore Claire Towey and senior Jamie Pippen all recorded multi-hit games.

Senior pitcher Jane Wilson collected the win, striking out three over three innings, while freshman Tess Bumhiller threw the game’s final four frames to close out the Kang victory.

• For Juanita, the Rebels pounded out 14 hits, including a grand slam from sophomore Lauren Moreau, to defeat Bothell, 18-8, on March 11.

Juanita led 9-0 after four innings, but Bothell wouldn’t go quietly as the Cougars notched one in the fifth and seven in the sixth. Juanita knocked in nine runs in the bottom of the sixth to finish the game.

Moreau had two hits and six RBIs on the day, followed by junior Sasha Mitchell with three hits — including a homer — and three RBIs and junior Abbie Reynolds with three hits and two RBIs. Junior Kaci Gordon, sophomore Rylee Blackburn, Mitchell and Reynolds all had doubles.
