Women's fastpitch looks to overcome struggles
By Milo Kabigting - Staff Reporter
The Lady T-Birds fastpitch continues to struggle on the season, reaching a 10-game losing streak last week.
"We had a few issues during the games and we couldn't get passed them and think it effected the outcome a little," said head coach Jason Evans. "We will get stronger as the season goes. Really looking forward to how this team this year is going to work together and where they can go near the end of the season."
Highline faced Douglas on April 10 but lost 7-1 the first game and 8-0 the second game.
In the first game, the T-Birds were no-hit by Douglas' J. Fasolino, who walked three batters and struck out 10.
In the second game Highline managed three hits, including an RBI from Jenny Hovland for the T-Birds' only run.
Douglas is second in the NWAC North, with a 13-3 record and with a starting line-up that's all hitting over .300 this season.
Three days later the Lady T-Birds faced Everett, where they ended up losing both times, 7-2 and 13-6.

In the second game, Ashley Hendrickson doubled in three runs and Kiana Kingsley drove in two more. Rosie Delrosario scored twice for the T-Birds.
