Three Western Washington University seniors making their final home appearances all had standout performances as the Vikings swept Simon Fraser University, 10-0 in five innings and 5-0, in a Great Northwest Athletic Conference softball doubleheader on Saturday, Apr. 25, at Viking Field on the WWU campus.
In the first game, seniors Allie Crowe, Alicia Fine and Autumn Isaacson combined for six hits, eight runs and six runs batted in.
Fine was 3-for-3, driving in four runs with a double, her team-leading 14th of the year, and a home run, her sixth of the season, tied for best on the squad. Isaacson scored three runs and drove in one. She had a single in her only official at bat and walked twice. Crowe was 2-for-3, scoring two runs and driving in one.
Makinlee Sellevold and Shayna Adelstein combined for a one-hit shutout, that a single by SFU’s Taylor Gillis to lead off the fourth inning. Sellevold, who had retired nine straight to that point, was replaced by Adelstein after the hit.

In the second game, Isaacson and Crowe were each 2-for-3. Isaacson, who had five stolen bases on the day, scored two runs and Crowe one. Fine had a hit and walked.
Sellevold gave up just a hit and a walk in four innings of work, combining with Holly Hawkins and Aspen Ison for a three-hit shutout. Hawkins pitched two innings and Ison one.
Isaacson got things started in the first when she singled, stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error. She scored on a single by Kali Patterson, who also drove in a run in the second with a sacrifice fly.
Jordan Walley made it 4-0 with a two-run homer in the third, her fifth of the year, and Alexi Levin drove in a run in the fourth.
