Dawgs Beat Bellevue, WWU On Second Day Of Fall Classic
Oct. 8, 2011
The Washington softball team picked up two more wins in the Husky Fall Classic Saturday, beating Bellevue College 16-0 and Western Washington, 8-2.
In the opener, Washington took a 3-0 lead in the first on a three-run homer from sophomore Kaitlin Inglesby. In the second, Lahners' grand slam made it 7-0. Washington scored seven in the fourth, led by an RBI double from Jerrin Faasua and a two-run double from Hooch Fagaly.
In the second game, leading 1-0, Shawna Wright belted a two-run homer to center, staking the Dawgs to a 3-0 lead in the second inning.
In the third, Lahners proved one RBI and freshman Courtney Gano drove in two more.
Western's Jordan Emmil plated a pair for the visitors in the fourth, but another UW freshman Kimberlee Souza, drove in the eighth Husky run in the fourth as the came was called after five and a half innings due to a time limit.
"Offensively I think we're continuing to figure things out," said UW head coach Heather Tarr.
"The biggest thing about our team is that we have to learn from each other, and I think we did that in the Bellevue game," continued Tarr. "On the second game of the day, I don't think we did a very good job making adjustments from batter to batter. We kind of went down too quick in a couple of innings. Other than that, defensively, some pretty good things happened. Everybody is getting an opportunity to play, which is what the Fall is all about--seeing what people can do."
The Fall Classic continues Sunday with Wenatchee Valley taking on Western at 10:00 a.m. The Huskies face North Idaho at 2:00 p.m., and then will finish the tournament with Wenatchee Valley at 4:00 p.m.
