Riley Garcia kept the rally going, swinging for an RBI single, while Sophia Fike had an RBI double and Camryn Scott batted in two runs with a double of her own.

Shimek finished the game batting 2-for-2 with an RBI for Inglemoor (8-2, 5-1 in KingCo 4A). Fike went 2-for-3 with two doubles and two RBI, and Garcia went 2-for-3 while driving in a run.

For Juanita (5-3, 4-1 in KingCo 2A/3A), Megan Murray batted 1-for-3 while driving in a run. Teammate Jordan Schneder went 1-for-2 at the plate.

DeKay picked up the win for the Vikings, who won their fourth straight game. DeKay pitched the game’s final three innings, allowing two hits while striking out eight. Inglemoor starting pitcher Taylor Waara surrendered one run while striking out seven through four innings of work.
