Maiden softball players bounce back, but benefit from playoff experience

In the State A tournament, the third-seeded Maidens would be vexed by the Devils for the third time and derailed by the Locomotives in the direction of the mascot interaction. But while their tournament tour may have been cut short, it was no shorter than that of a pair of other third seeds.

Against the Corvallis Lady Blue Devils, Ronan trailed early as their opponent’s two-pitch mix and match approach kept Maiden’s hitters off balance long enough for the Corvallis hitters to manufacture enough runs to win. an advantage. The Maidens managed to score three goals in the sixth inning. But there was not enough time left to change the result.

Against Laurel’s Lady Locomotives, the Maidens managed to generate a handful of hits against Laurel’s mound ace high-caliber pitcher Ella Crookston. Among these was an additional double from LouRasia Weatherwax. But the Maidens’ task was daunting as they faced the same pitcher that eventual 2021 champion Polson had to stretch nine innings in last year’s semi-final before they could manufacture a lone run that proved be the ticket to move forward.

The Maidens said goodbye to a quartet of seniors in pitcher Kiara Sherman, infielders Ashlie Welker as well as Haylie Webster and Julianna Vizzerra.
