CHS Softball Roundup

Bruins' hard luck continues against Beavers, Spudders

Columbia High's softball team traveled to Castle Rock on Tuesday for its final game of the season and in pursuit of its second Trico League victory.

The hard-luck Bruins (1-13, 5-13) failed in three tries last week to add to their win-column total.

Woodland foiled CHS's bid for another league win by sweeping a double-header here last Friday.

The Beavers took game one 4-2, then scored twice in the bottom of the sixth inning in game two to break a 4-4 tie en route to a 6-5 decision.

Woodland ace Hannah Hanes checked the Bruins on two hits in the opener: a run-scoring triple by Mallory Holtman and an RBI single by Crystal Blankenship. Both hits came in CHS's two-run sixth.

In the nightcap, Sarah Bolen (two innings) and Hanes (five innings) combined to limit CHS to six hits in the seven-inning contest.

Holtman connected for two of those hits -- a double and a triple -- and knocked in a run.

Krista Bakke had an RBI single, and Corrine Blankenship drove in a run with a double. Crystal Blankenship (single) and Jessica Miller (double) also had one hit apiece.

Holtman came out the loser in both games. She allowed seven hits in the first contest and 12 in the second.

CHS's defense made five fielding miscues in game two after playing error-free softball in game one.

At Ridgefield 15, Columbia High 1 --

The Bruins suffered their most lopsided defeat of the season April 23 in losing to the first-place Spudders for the fourth time.

Ridgefield's Dani Nelson allowed just one run and one hit in five innings of work.

Mallory Holtman tripled for CHS in the fourth inning to drive in Lisa Graves.

Ridgefield hammered out 16 hits, including five for extra bases.
