Struiksma helps at plate and in circle for Nooksack win


Nooksack Valley's softball team scored early and often in a 20-1 win over Squalicum in four innings in a Northwest Conference game on Monday, April 28, at Squalicum.

Kayla Struiksma picked up the win on the mound for Nooksack and went 3 for 3 at the plate with three runs and two RBI.

Dakota Littlefield and Hailey Linville recorded Squalicum's two hits.
