Pioneers overcome alumnae

Nooksack Valley’s softball team shut out its alumnae in a 9-0 nonconference win on Saturday, May 2, at Nooksack Valley.

Maddy Myhre was 3 for 4 with an RBI, Alexis Pike was 3 for 3 with an RBI, and Cassidy Zylstra went 2 for 4 with an RBI for the Pioneers.

Rachel Sande was the big hitter, though, going 2 for 3 with a pair of RBI.

“It’s a fun day and fairly competitive,” Nooksack Valley coach Tom Harmon said in a phone interview. “Having the alumni there is fun. You know they can’t wait to take it to you.”

Erika Van Dyken (formerly Ramstead) took the loss in the circle for the alumnae. Ashley Van Dyken and Coddie Shahan each went 2 for 3.

The Pioneers are back in action at 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 5, at Lynden.
