Collette Brown hit a solo home run, and Kadence Kane added two RBI with a double and a triple, as the Ferndale softball team won at Meridian 7-3 on Saturday, March 23, in a non-conference game.
"We had the bases loaded in the sixth, and Ferndale got a great bases-loaded double play," Meridian coach Tony Johnson said in a phone interview. "We had two on in the seventh, but we couldn't manufacture anything."
Madeline Gray had a perfect day at the plate for the Trojans, going 2 for 2.
Meridian (2-4) next travels to Nooksack Valley on Monday, March 25, while Ferndale (2-4) doesn't play until Tuesday, March 26, against Mount Baker. Both are Northwest Conference games.
