The Mount Baker softball team defeated Lynden Christian 3-0 on Tuesday, April 9, at Mount Baker in a Northwest Conference league game.
Aleks Toivola picked up her fourth win of the season, and Emma Lallas chipped in a double and triple at the plate.
"(Aleks) battled," Mount Baker coach Ron Lepper said in a phone interview. "She wasn't overpowering, but she was able to work out of some jams, and she made the defense play behind her."
The Mountaineers scored all three of their runs in the sixth inning after stringing together four consecutive hits, including consecutive doubles by Aysha Schwinden, Megan Young and Lallas.
Both Mount Baker (5-3, 2-1 NWC) and Lynden Christian (2-5, 1-3 NWC) play on Thursday, April 11, with the Mountaineers traveling to Nooksack Valley and the Lyncs hosting Burlington-Edison.
