Lady Vikes Snap Losing Streak

Lady Vikes Snap Losing Streak

The Lady Vikes traveled to Yakima Valley CC on Friday April 28th for a double header hoping to snap a 17 game losing streak. Offense has not been the issue for the Lady Vikes this season and game one was a prime example as they managed 12 hits with Alyssa Krause leading the way with a 3-4 day including a homerun and a double while driving in three and scoring three times. Kaitlyn Rosenburg also had 3 hits and drove in three along with Alexis Bicondova and Chloe Peirce collecting two hits a piece. With the Lady Vikes rallying for 9 runs it was up to the pitching to hold it down. Rebecca Carson threw 7 innings of 8 run ball while striking out 8 snapping the Lady Vikes losing streak with a 9-8 victory. 

Hoping to build off of a solid game one victory the Lady Vikes prepared for game two. After a stellar offensive game, the sticks were silenced in game two as the Lady Vikes were only able to scratch across three runs with Alexis Bicondova collecting two hits and Kaitlyn Rosenburg driving in 2 of the 3 runs. With not much going offensively, BBCC pitching was unable to hold the Yakima offense as the Lady Vikes fell by a score of 7-3.

After splitting on Friday, the Lady Vikes turned around on Saturday and faced off against the Columbia Basin Hawks at home. Game one was uneventful on all sides of the ball. The BBCC offense was only able to collect two hits over the course of the game and was unable to scratch a run across. With 3 errors on the defensive side of the ball, BBCC pitching could not hold the CBC offense resulting in a 10-0 loss.

After a sluggish start in game one, the BBCC offense was able to turn it on and collect 11 hits as a team with multi-hit games from Chloe Peirce, Maya Valdez, Alyssa Krause and Bailee Leatherwood. Bailee Leatherwood and Maya Valdez were the heartbeat of the Viking offense in game two as the both drove in three runs a piece. Although the Lady Vikes offense was firing, the pitching was unable to stop the high powered Hawk offense. The Hawks struck for 13 runs in the first inning making it an uphill battle for BBCC who ultimately fell by a score of 24-12
