Putting its power on display, the Coupeville High School softball team slugged five extra-base hits in an 11-1 romp in six innings over visiting Meridian Saturday, April 20, in a non-conference game.

The Wolves (4-2, 7-6) now return to North Sound Conference play and their final push to catch first-place Granite Falls (6-1, 9-5).

The Wolves scored multiple runs in all but one inning and slapped 10 hits to subdue the Trojans (4-7).

Sarah Wright led the hit parade with a home run, two singles, three runs and three RBI.

Scott Smith added a single, double, two runs and two RBI; while Veronica Crownover singled, doubled and drove in two.

Emma Mathusek tripled and scored three times, Izzy Wells doubled and scored two runs, Mollie Bailey singled and Chelsea Prescott collected two RBI.

Wells was the winning pitcher, tossing a three-hitter.

“We came out swinging today and had a very good day at the plate,” coach Kevin McGranahan said. “We hit it hard all day, and the ones that didn’t fall in found leather. We hit our fair share right at them, but we kept hitting anyway.
