Lyncs get two big wins in Chelan


Lynden Christian's softball team earned two big wins on Saturday, March 22, in Chelan. The Lyncs topped Kittitas 20-7 in the first game and then beat Chelan 11-2.

"Today was a great day all around for us," LC coach Mitch Moorlag said in a phone interview. "Our pitchers did well; they threw strikes and let the defense do its work. Last week we had some error-filled games, but today we were proud to put a zero up in the error column."

In the Kittitas game Kasey Luna was 4 for 5 with a triple and five runs scored. Shelby Brown was 4 for 5 with a double and a two-run homer. She had a total of six RBI in that game.

In the game against Chelan, Lexi Vander Griend was 5 for 5 and Brown was 2 for 5 with two home runs, one three-run home run and a two-run home run.

"Our whole offensive outlook was to attack and be aggressive," Moorlag said. "The girls did a great job to set that tone early (with a 10-run first against Kittitas)."

Lynden Christian's next game is at Blaine at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 25, at Pipeline Fields.
