Granite Falls chases North Whidbey from state tournament / Junior softball

Granite Falls/Stilly Valley eliminated North Whidbey from the state junior softball state tournament by defeating the Oak Harbor club 16-1 in four innings Monday, July 2, in Poulsbo.

Regardless of the outcome, North Whidbey coach Bridget Thayer said, “It was so fun. (I am) proud if all the girls; they played hard.”

Granite Falls/Stilly Valley started the game with four consecutive hits and three first-inning runs and never let up.

North Whidbey had only two hits, and both came in the third inning to produce North Whidbey’s only run.

Grace Odeneal led off the third with a single, then with two outs, Kayli Bobsin doubled her home.

North Whidbey pitcher Macy Oliver pitched with a pulled hamstring, basically throwing off one leg, according to her father and assistant coach Gerry Oliver.

“The girls had a great experience and really learned what it means to play under tough conditions,” coach Oliver said.
