BEAVERTON, Ore.– Tigard’s Makenna Reid made sure life wasn’t easy for Sprague Monday afternoon in the Olympians Jesuit-Sunset Tournament as the Florida State University-signee held Sprague to one hit in the Tigers 11-0 win.
The one hit came way in the bottom of the fourth inning as Sophia Honse singled to break the then no-hitter as the Olys took the game-break in between their two games, resetting for their 7-4 win over Mountian View of Washington that night.
“(Reid) was definitely one of the better pitchers that we’ve had, so I think all that game (against Tigard) was mental,” Sprague Head Coach Madisen Oliver said. “I think the girls need to take this game break to just kind of reset, come back and focus.
“So I’m excited to see how they bounce back and I think they’ll come a little bit more prepared.”
And refocused they were coming out of the rainy first day of the day. After going down 3-1 to the Evergreen State Mountain View squad, the Olympians wheeled off six-straight runs. Holding Mountain View to one as the game was called due to darkness after the fifth inning.
Honse rebounded from the first game with a seven-strikeout, four-hit second game while going 3-for-4 at the plate. Summer Domrude also had a multi-hit game with two with an RBI. Carley Schlag (1-for-4), Summer Melena (1-for-3) and Megan Smith (1-for-4) all had an RBI as well in the win.
Sprague plays again Tuesday at Jesuit with the Olympians playing La Salle Prep at 8:30pm and Westview at 12:30pm.
