Cedarcrest jumped on the visiting Coupeville fastpitch team early to pick up a 10-3 win in the Wolves' league opener Monday, March 19.
The tone was set when the Red Wolves (2-0) started the game single, walk, home run to go up 3-0. They built a 9-0 lead after three innings.
Coupeville tallied its three runs in the fifth, all with two outs. McKayla Bailey and Ali Trumbull walked, then Bessie Walstad ripped a triple to left center. Hailey Hammer then singled Walstad.
Co-coach David King said, "We had a couple of misplayed balls in the field and a few throwing errors that kept innings going for Cedarcrest."
In all, five Coupeville errors led to four unearned runs.
Offensively, the Wolves collected nine hits. Hammer added another single, and Trumbull, Bailey, Haley Sherman, Sydney Aparicio, Madeline Roberts and Arianna Johnson (in her first varsity at bat) singled.
Coupeville (0-1, 1-2) hosts Lakewood (1-0) at 4 p.m. Wednesday, March 21.Contact Whidbey News Times Sports editor Jim Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-675-6611 ext. 5060.
