EHS FASTPITCH: Morrow hits clutch single for win
After suffering its second loss of the season, a 10-4 setback to Yelm at the Boise Creek Sixplex March 21, Enumclaw High’s fastpitch squad rallied to capture a hard-fought 5-3 road win in its South Puget Sound League 3A opener at Lakes March 23.
The Hornets tied up the wild Lakes encounter at three apiece in the top of the fifth inning, then went for the jugular in the sixth as Courtney Cox, who went 3 for 3 on the day, pounded a double and was brought home via a clutch single by Sarah Morrow.
Another Hornet frosh, Joslin Pierotti, tallied the insurance run in the top of the seventh. Pierotti smashed a line drive that slipped past by the Lakes center fielder and rolled for a country mile. The lack of a fence allowed Pierotti to ramble on home.
With its record sitting at 1-0 in league and 3-2 overall, Enumclaw was denied the chance to host its initial SPSL 3A game of the season Friday against Decatur, as rainy weather rendered the Boise Creek field unplayable.
