Inglemoor softball takes fifth place at state

Inglemoor’s softball team won a pair and lost a pair to finish fifth at the 4A state tournament.

After winning their first two games, the Viks faced Puyallup in the semifinals on Saturday and lost, 6-1.

Camryn Scott had a double and Mackenzie DeKay had one hit and one RBI.

Next up on Saturday, Camas defeated the Viks, 8-2, to end the locals’ season. Hannah Shimek had three hits and O’Nalisa Hall had a double.

“I am so proud of my team this season. Nobody expected us to make it to state, let alone finish fifth,” DeKay said. “We had so many young players step up this season and it was a lot of fun to surprise people this year. I couldn’t have asked for a better senior season, and I am so thankful to have the team we did this year that didn’t worry about perceptions and just played their hearts out.”

Pitcher DeKay homered and got the win in the Vikings’ 4-3 victory over Rogers in the opening round of the tournament on Friday at the Dwight-Merkel Sports Complex in Spokane.

Hall also homered and had two hits, Scott had two hits and DeKay had three hits and three RBIs.

Inglemoor led 4-0 as Rogers batted in the bottom of sixth and scored two runs. Rogers added one in the bottom the seventh, but it wasn’t enough.

Inglemoor beat Walla Walla, 8-6, in its second game.

Inglemoor led 8-2 after scoring three runs in the top of the fifth inning. Down 8-6 with two outs and two on in the bottom of the seventh inning, Walla Walla couldn’t cash in any more runs.

Taylor Waara had three hits, including a homer for the Viks, who also got three hits from Hall and two each from Riley Garcia and Scott.

DeKay got the win with 10 strikeouts.
