Vancouver, WA — The undefeated Camas High School Slow Pitch Softball team (22-0) handily beat Heritage Monday night, 6-1, claiming the 4A District title.
The team heads to State competition in Richland this Saturday to compete against seven other teams.
Pitcher Emery Miller did well, and was backed up by a solid defense, allowing only one run early in the game.
“We were the number one seed in league, 19-0, then we played Columbia River for tournament play, we beat them, then we played Hudson’s Bay, which qualified us for State in Richland,” said coach Dale Lundy. “Four teams come from our area, and we’ll play the best four teams from Spokane.”
Taija Souki scored early in the game, and was followed by Sophie Franklin, who brought in the second run. Addison Cagle scored the third run, and Maddie Ellis scored the fourth. Sophie Franklin scored again (fifth run) by sliding into home; and Megan Bauer scored the final run of the game.
- Sophie Franklin was 3-for-3 with 2 runs.
- Payton Bates was 3-for-3 with two RBI.
- Cameron Schroeder was 2-for-2.
- Megan Bauer was 1-for-3.
- Maddie Ellis was 2-for-3.
- Ava Lathim was 1-for-3 with 2 RBI.
“We all worked hard to support each other,” said Emery Miller, who pitched the entire game. “We put in the time, and the work.”
