Lynden Christian softball held Bellingham to just one hit in an 11-0 win on Friday, March 29, in a Northwest Conference league game at Bender Fields.
Bridget Kruck and Karley De Jager combined to throw five scoreless innings, striking out eight and only surrendering one walk.
De Jager also helped herself out at the plate, going 3 for 3 with two doubles and two RBI.
"We came out and swung the bats early," Lynden Christian coach Mitch Moorlag said in a phone interview. "De Jager really hit the ball well all three times she hit today."
Lexi Holleman also had a perfect 3 for 3 day for LC with a double and an RBI. Julia Latimer had Bellingham's lone hit.
Both Bellingham and Lynden Christian next play on April 9, with the Red Raiders traveling to Meridian and the Lions traveling to Burlington-Edison. Both are Northwest Conference league games.
