Fast-pitch team ends busy week

The Pirates fast-pitch softball team had a busy week last week, playing four games in six days. The Pirates finished the week with one win, two losses and one tie.

On Monday, Vashon played a non-league road game against West Seattle High School. West Seattle proved itself to be a talented team, beating Vashon 12-2.

Friday league play resumed when Cedar Park Christian came to the rock for the second meeting of the year. The Pirates battled hard for seven innings, but fell to the Eagles, 10-7.

On Saturday, the Pirates welcomed the Cleveland High School Eagles for a non-league doubleheader. Vashon dominated the first game, winning 14-4 in five innings with sophomore Lilly Hennessey pitching. In the second game of the double header, Vashon put forth four pitchers, starting with senior Gabby Frazier and freshmen Baily Ormsby and Makenna McVey. Both freshmen made their pitching debuts then Hennessey closed it out.

The game ended in an 18-all tie due to the two-hour game limit.
