The Inglemoor High softball team fought off a late rally from the Skyline Spartans to pick up a 7-6 win Thursday at Skyline High School.

The victory marked the third-consecutive for the Vikings (7-2, 5-1 in KingCo) and earned Inglemoor sole possession of second place in the KingCo 4A standings.

The Vikings jumped out to a 6-1 lead after three innings of play before seeing Skyline (6-3, 4-2) respond with two runs in the bottom of the fifth. After Inglemoor added another run to its advantage in the top of the sixth, Skyline continued to claw its way back. With the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning, Skyline junior Lauren Lo swung for a bases-clearing double, bringing in three runs to cut the deficit to one. But Inglemoor pitcher MacKenzie DeKay managed to force the following batter to ground out to secure the win for the Vikings.

Hannah Shimek batted 2-for-4 for Inglemoor, swinging for a double, a triple and four RBI. Teammates Camryn Scott and O’Nalisa Hall also registered a pair of hits at the plate. DeKay earned the win for Inglemoor, pitching seven innings while surrendering six runs, ten hits and striking out seven.

For Skyline, Lo went 3-for-3 at the plate while driving in six runs. Cara Harnick, Molly Spanic and Camille Goo all recorded two hits for the Spartans.

Next, Inglemoor will take on Juanita (5-2, 4-1 in KingCo 2A/3A) at 6 p.m. Monday at Inglemoor High School.
