Ferndale’s softball team rallied back from a 6-3 deficit in a big way, taking a 20-6 Northwest Conference win in five innings on Tuesday, April 21, at Sedro-Woolley.
Drew Westford hit for the cycle, going 4 for 5 with four RBI, just one day after Lauren Maley was a home run away from completing the cycle.
Amanda Baker was also 2 for 3 with a home run, three RBI and a walk.
“We had a bit of a slow start,” Ferndale coach Holly Hilton said in a phone interview. “We came out a bit off and then pulled it together. Drew was very happy, that’s a hard thing to do. It was in everyone’s minds after yesterday.”
Never miss a local story.
Maley earned the win in the circle, striking out six Cubs and walking one. Only two of the six runs were earned.
Ferndale hosts Anacortes at 4 p.m. Friday, April 24, at home.
