Lady T-Birds slide into playoffs

By Milo Kabigting - Staff Reporter



The Lady T-Bird's Fast pitch team has secured a berth in the NWACC softball playoffs, which begins tomorrow in Spokane.  

Highline sits at No. 14 out of the 16 teams in the preliminaries, and will play Edmonds, which sits at the No. 3 seed.  

Defense will be important for the Thunderbirds, said Head Coach Jason Evans

"Our defense will be the key thing. We will be working on going into the post-season," Evans said. "We need to get better defensively and limit mental mistakes. Our offense will score; we are confident in that."

Highline has yet to get a win against the Tritons this season. 

Most recently, on May 11, Highline traveled to Pierce, where they won the first game 14-10, then lost in a nail-biter, their second game 14-13.  

Highline's Hailey Clark exploded with four hits, and three RBIs in the first game. Clark leads the team with a .350 batting average.

Kiana Kingsley followed right behind, matching Clark's three RBIs.  

In addition, the second game was close, but Pierce battled it out, coming out on top, 14-13.  

Highline's Rosie Delrosario and Hailey Clark racked up impressive stats, both tallying three hits, but Pierce's Michaela Hougland was too much, finishing the game with five hits. Hougland leads Pierce with a .396 batting average. 

On May 12, Douglas traveled to Highline where they came out with both wins against the Lady T-Birds, 9-1 and 13-5.  

In the second game, Clark led the Thunderbirds with two RBIs.  

The Lady T-Birds play tomorrow at 10 a.m. against Edmonds, at the Merkle Sports Complex in Spokane.
