Beavers Post Season Roundup: Softball wins; Track and Field athletes advance to finals; students named to All-KingCo conference teams
Despite a disappointing playoff loss to Issaquah, the Lady Beavers had one more chance to advance in the state tournament with last night's game against Skyline.
The score remained deadlocked at 0-0 until an exciting 6th inning when Ballard scored a pair of runs in the first half. With pitcher Andrea Jewett in the circle, Skyline was unable to rally.
The game concluded with Ballard shutting out Skyline 2-0.
Andrea Jewett posted 2 RBI's and 3 QABs defensively, and she pitched all game, striking out 8, and allowing one hit and 1 BB.
The Lady Beavers play again today at 3:00 p.m. at Hartman Field in a loser out game against Issaquah. They have to win today for an opportunity to play for state.
