Olympia coach Matt Loes called pitcher Maddy Stensby’s performance Tuesday in a 1-0 win over Bellarmine Prep her best of the season after the sophomore threw a one-hit shutout and recorded 10 strikeouts to help push the Bears’ winning streak to seven. Leticia Farias’ fielder’s choice grounder in the fifth inning brought home Adrianna Rupright for the game’s only run. Bellarmine Prep’s hit came in the fourth, and Stensby overcame four errors to notch the shutout. “That was her best outing by far,” Loes said, “and she’s had quite a few of them.”

Winning pitcher Elizabeth Smith went 2-for-3 and drove in a pair of runs in Tumwater’s 17-0 victory over Black Hills. Alexa McDaniel had two hits and drove in four runs.


Garrett Terrell struck out the side in the seventh to finished with 11 strikeouts, and he went 2-for-2 with a pair of RBI to help Tumwater to a 4-1 win over Black Hills. The victory snaps a four-game skid for the Thunderbirds (8-7).

Lucas Eastman pounded out four hits and Wyatt Singer, Jayson Dickerson and Taran Agar added two hits apiece as Rochester beat Rainier, 19-0.


Tumwater’s Connor Sigmon scored the tying goal with five minutes remaining in regulation, but Centralia’s Binod Sapkota scored in the final minute of the second overtime to give the Tigers a 4-3 win.
