Tomahawks fall at District tourney

Marysville-Pilchuck's Chloe Morgan bunts for her first hit of the game against Mountlake Terrace at Phil Johnson Fields on May 17.

The Marysville-Pilchuck girls softball team played on both ends of the spectrum on May 17 as they won and lost in the first day of the double-elimination District Tournament. In the first game they maintained a steady lead in a high-scoring affair against Mountlake Terrace, grabbing an 18-11 victory. In the second game they lost that ability to create runs as they were shut out 13-0 against a strong Meadowdale team.

"Meadowdale is a really solid club and we got them last time. I knew they'd have a chip on their shoulder coming into this game to play us. They came out to play. We had some mistakes. A good hitting team like that, you can't afford to give them extra outs. Mix in hits with some mistakes and the game got really ugly from there," said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Aaron Zachry.

Marysville-Pilchuck's Sydney Zachry winds up to throw to first base against Mountlake Terrace at Phil Johnson Fields on May 17.

Marysville-Pilchuck relied heavily on their starting pitcher, Mckenzie Justice, as she pitched for nine innings over the two games. She also contributed with three RBIs, one run and she was walked three times. Two other major contributors for the Tomahawks were outfielder, Chloe Morgan, and catcher, Kylie Lopez. Morgan hit four-for-eight on the day, while racking up four runs and a RBI. Lopez maintained her dominance at the plate by hitting two-for-three, getting three walks and exploding for five RBIs on the day.

"We played okay. We knew that the District Tournament was going to be tough. There are some really good teams here and our goal coming is was to get to State. We wanted to win two games in day one and we got half of that done," said Coach Zachry.

The Tomahawks lost again in the finals of the losers bracket on May 19. Glacier Peak beat them with a score of 12-9 and officially took away their chance to go to State, as Marysville-Pilchuck finished fourth in Districts.
