Sumner’s fastpitch softball team lost 13-3 to Auburn Mountainview Wednesday, on the Lions’ home diamond. The match-up was an exhibition game, unrelated to the sub-district tournament that ended Saturday or the district tournament that begins Friday.
The Lions established an early lead, taking two runs in the first inning, two more in the third, and nine in the fourth. The Spartans went runless in the first four innings and took three runs in the fifth.
In two times at bat, Allie Sims hit the ball once to take a triple, and achieved 1-RBI. On the pitcher’s mound, she pitched three innings and struck out the Lions four times.
The Spartans open the district tournament Friday with a match-up against North Mason on Sprinker Field in Tacoma.
