CHS girls end month-long winning streak

The Cedarcrest Red Wolves girls' softball team added a loss to their record Tuesday, May 1, when they hosted Granite Falls in a conference match. The 7-2 loss is their second for the season, and their first since March 23.

Granite Falls took a commanding lead early in the game, scoring two unanswered runs in both the first and third innings, and another three in the fifth. The Red Wolves defense shut them down in the sixth, and the girls started scoring, but too late to make up the deficit.

Cedarcrest had seven strike-outs at bat against the Granite Falls pitcher, Martinez, who pitched seven innings. Home pitcher Stephanie Hall, with catcher LuAnn Townley, pitched seven innings, with four strike-outs.

For the Red Wolves, junior Taylor Turner hit a double, and Hall, going two for three at bat, hit a double, a single, and earned an RBI. Townley also had an RBI.

A rescheduled game Friday April 27 started with a huge lead by the opponents, Coupeville early on. The Wolves scored four runs on pitcher Maddy Harris, but that was the end of their streak. Cedarcrest scored two runs in the third inning, and one each in the fifth, sixth, and seventh, an RBI from Kailyn Campbell in the bottom of the seventh, with one out.

Harris pitched all seven innings, earning one strike-out, five balls, and six hits. Catcher LuAnn Townley had one RBI for the day. Campbell, in addition to the winning RBI, hit for a double, two singles, and three more RBIs. Taylor Turner was two for two at bat, with three singles, and three runs scored.
