GRESHAM, OR — The Lane men and Spokane women took home the team championships Tuesday afternoon.

The Titans scored 275 points to top Spokane’s tally of 202 with Clackamas taking third with 90 points.

The Spokane women just eclipsed Lane’s score 215 to 209.5. Clackamas also took third with a distant 104 points.

Record Setters
Lane sophomore Dakarai Hightower set a new meet record high jump of 7′ 5"….  And he didn’t need to apologize to the former record holder – Hightower beat his own previous record of 7′ 3 1/4" set at the 2014 championship meet.

Hightower did make an attempt for JC record of 7′ 8" set in 1985 by Dennis Lewis (Long Beach), but narrowly missed the mark by the width of the Titan jersey material on his back

The automatic Olympic qualifying mark is 2.28 meters and with Hightower’s 2.26m he stands a chance to make the US Team this summer in the Rio games.

Mt. Hood sophomore Josh Turner also set a record in the 110m High Hurdles with a time of 14.00 seconds. Turner broke the previous record of 14.15 seconds set by Gerald Ellis in 1986

Meet Honors
Lane freshman Rubie Cordey was earned the Women’s High Point Scorer (39 points) while sophomore teammate Grant Shurtliff was the Men’s High Point Scorer (38 points).

With the honor, both Cordey and Shurtliff were named the NWAC Baden Track & Field Athletes of the Year and will be honored at the NWAC Hall of Fame Banquet on June 3rd.

Lane sophomore Kylee O’Connor and Mt. Hood Freshman Danelle Woodcock were the Women’s Track Athletes of the Meet.

Lane freshman Rashad Swank-Jones was named the Men’s Track Athlete of the Meet.

Spokane freshman Elisha Allred was named the Women’s Field Athlete of the Meet while Lane sophomore Dakarai Hightower was named the Men’s Field Athlete of the Meet.

Lane head coach Grady O’Connor was named the Men’s Coach of the Year while Spokane’s Jason Cash was selected Men’ Coach of the Year.

By NWAC Sports Information Assistant, Spencer Roland

PORTLAND—For the second time in four years, the NWAC Softball Championships featured an international championship game on Monday between perennial power Mt. Hood Saints of Gresham, OR and the Douglas Royals from New Westminster, British Columbia.

Mt. Hood entered the game having already defeated Douglas the day before in a bottom of the 7th rally 5-4.

Since the tournament is double elimination, the Royals would have to defeat the Saints twice if they wanted to bring the trophy home to Canada.

After a quiet first inning, Hood struck first in the 2nd when Tiara Champ laced a 2-out single to left field that plated Courtney Cabana and Hailey Valitski for a 2-0 lead.

Mt. Hood ace Kayla Byers would not allow a hit until deep in the 3rd inning when a pair of infield singles with a combined 30 feet in distance allowed Douglas a runner in scoring position but a quick out would get Byers out of the jam.

In the 4th, It was South Region MVP Darian Lindsey smashing a 2-run home run to center to tack on to a mounting lead for the Saints.

Byers continued a strong outing and receive more help in the 5th from a solo home run from Megan Marcy.

Douglas countered with a run of their own in the bottom of the 5th from a 2-out double from right fielder Daniella Vilio.

The Royals stuck again in the 6th with the help of a Saint error to cut the lead to 5-2. However, in the 7th Hood would add some insurance from back to back RBI singles from Reeghan Lehnert and Hailey Valitski.

Byers completed her dominance of the Royals with 3 quick outs in the 7th to seal the deal for the 2016 NWAC Champion Mt. Hood Saints 7-2.

Mt Hood finishes the season with a 38-8 record (17-3) and their 5th championship, all under head coach Meadow McWhorter.

The 2nd place finish is Douglas’ second in the program’s six year history. The Royals also claimed runner-up in the 2013 championship under then head coach Gord Collings.

McWhorter was named the NWAC Softball Coach of the Year, her fifth honor. Saints sophomore pitcher Kayla Byers was named the Tournament MVP.

In the 3rd place game, it was Douglas emerging victorious over division rival and top-ranked Bellevue for the second time this tournament.

Keeley Ainge turned in a gritty performance for the Royals going the distance while scattering 10 hits for 6 runs.

Bellevue committed some untimely errors that allowed Douglas to capitalize, scoring 4 unearned runs.

The Lady Bulldogs were led by Rachael Delamare and Brianna Attwood who both blasted solo home runs.

For Douglas it was Taylor Woodward who was 2-3 with 3 RBIs and 2 runs scored.

Bellevue earns its best ever finish at the tournament (3rd). For Douglas, they would reach their 2nd championship game in 4 years (finished 2nd to Wenatchee Valley in 2013).

Former Baden Player of the Year Hailey Bator collects Regional win for Washington Huskies

UW Huskies

By

Seattle Times staff reporter

In an intriguing matchup between the winningest pitcher in college softball this year and the team with the fourth-best slugging percentage nationally, the Huskies’ clutch hitting ultimately prevailed.

Washington (38-13) engineered a thrilling comeback in the sixth inning to beat Minnesota, 5-2, Saturday afternoon in the double-elimination NCAA regional at Husky Softball Stadium, and advance to the championship game at noon Sunday.

The Huskies will again face Minnesota after the Gophers bounced back and defeated North Dakota State, 7-5, in an elimination game Saturday night. Earlier Saturday, North Dakota State knocked off Weber State, 5-2, in an elimination game.

The Huskies, who remained undefeated in regional play, only need to win once on Sunday to advance to the Super Regionals next weekend. The Gophers would have to beat Washington twice in order to advance. If a second game is necessary, it would start 30 minutes after the conclusion of the first game.

Sydney Dwyer’s run-scoring single in the top of the sixth gave Minnesota a 2-1 lead, with the Gophers’ ace pitcher, Sara Groenewegen, still going.

Up to that point, Groenewegen was living up to all her lofty stats. She entered the game with a 1.85 ERA and leading the country with a 31-5 record. She was one victory away from tying Minnesota’s season wins record.

The right-handed junior averaged 10.2 strikeouts per seven innings, and she’d already struck out five Husky batters by the time she took the mound again in the bottom of the sixth.

True to form, the cool, methodical Groenewegen went right back to work, striking out the Huskies’ first two batters before Dani Braun finally managed a hit.

Groenewegen surprisingly wavered. She walked Trysten Melhart, then hit Ali Aguilar in the right shoulder to load the bases as UW second baseman Taylor Van Zee stepped to the plate.

"I knew my teammates were rooting for me. They kept saying little things that were pumping me up and just helping me through the moment," Van Zee said. "I think back through the preparation we put in every day, and I was just at peace and ready to do something."

With a 2-2 count, Van Zee smashed the ball deep into right field for a double, giving Braun, Melhart and Aguilar plenty of time to round the bases and score.

"It felt good off the bat, and I was just excited to see all my teammates scoring," said Van Zee, who led UW with three hits and three RBI. "I was ready and I was really excited and it was fun."

Washington’s next batter, Kimberlee Souza took advantage of the momentum shift, and her single was bobbled by Minnesota left fielder Kayla Wenner, sending Van Zee home to score what would be the final run of the game.

Madi Schreyer, the sophomore right-handed pitcher who picked up the win against Weber State on Friday night, started against Minnesota (43-13) on Saturday, and lasted 51/3 innings, giving up three hits, striking out two and walking three batters before she was pulled for senior lefty Hailey Bator (Wenatchee Valley).

Groenewegen pitched six innings, struck out seven and gave up five earned runs in her sixth defeat of the year. Interestingly, two of those six have come at the hands of the Huskies, who beat Groenewegen and Minnesota 7-2 at a tournament in Las Vegas on Feb. 14.

"They’re a really good team," Aguilar said. "We came at them with everything we had. Pitching-wise, it went (Groenewegen’s) way, but we were due toward the end of the game and obviously we came through.

"It was a real team effort, and that’s all we can ask for."

DENVER, Colo. – No. 5 Humboldt State is one win away from its third national championship after Madison Williams tossed a three-hit shutout in a 5-0 win over No. 3 North Alabama in game one of the Division II National Championship series on Friday evening from the Regency Athletic Complex on the campus of Metropolitan State University of Denver.

Prior to the game one win, the Jacks (54-6-1) earned their berth into the championship series with a 6-2 win over No. 16 Armstrong State in the "if necessary" semifinal game.

The Jacks and the Lions (57-7) will square off in game two at 2:00 ET on Saturday. A game three is scheduled for 4:30 should North Alabama win.

Championship Series Game 1 – No. 5 Humboldt State 5, No. 3 North Alabama 0

Madison Williams twirled a three-hit masterpiece to lead Humboldt State to a 5-0 win over North Alabama in the first game of the Championship Series. The junior surrendered just three hits to the nation’s third-best offense, struck out five and did not walk a batter to improve to 26-3 on the season.

The Jacks took advantage of an error to grab a 1-0 lead in the first. Three run-scoring singles in the fourth by Kalyn Paque (SW Oregon), Cyndi Chavez and Hannah Holland gave HSU a 4-0 advantage. A sac fly by Sydney Roberts pushed across an insurance run in the sixth.

Paque and Hollingsworth each went 2-for-3 at the plate with Paque recording a double and scoring two runs.

Brooklynn Clark, Madeline Lee and Bailey Nelson each generated one hit for the Lions.

Semifinal – No. 5 Humboldt State 6, Armstrong State 2

Powered by a four-run fourth, Humboldt State earned a 6-2 win over Armstrong State to advance to the 2016 National Championship series. Reaching the semifinals and posting three wins, the Pirates (43-15) made their deepest run in their third trip to the National Championships.

Following three scoreless innings, HSU put a four-spot on the board in the top half of the frame. Paque broke the deadlock with a two-run home run to left. Chavez and Holland each drove in a run with a double and single, respectively.

The Pirates got on the board in the fifth on a Peyton Roth RBI single, but the Jacks would push their lead to 6-1 on a run-scoring singles up the middle by Holland and Tiffany Hollingsworth.

Holland finished 2-for-3 with a double, two RBI and two stolen bases. Katie Obbema improved to 24-3 with a complete-game effort. She scattered eight hits, struck out seven and walked one.

Spencer Roland, NWAC Sports Information Assistant.

PORTLAND— Picking up right where they left off Saturday afternoon, Bellevue continued their assault on the Lower Columbia pitching staff scoring 3 runs in the 3rd, 1 in the 4th and 3 in the 5th lead by Brianna Attwood who was 4-4 with a home run and 2 RBIs.

Sam Boyce would notch a 3-run home run of her own for LC but it was not enough as Bellevue cruised to an 11-4 victory eliminating LCC.

In the other suspended game, Hailey Frilot would blast a 2-run home run in the bottom of the 6th for Clackamas to overcome impending elimination and knock Centralia out of the tourney ending their great run as a 15 seed.

The second set of games would feature wild finishes that had everyone on their seats.

In the winner’s bracket, Douglas and Mt. Hood traded blows back and forth into extra innings. In the top of the 7th, Daniella Vilio launched a 1-out solo home run to tie the ball game at 3-3.

Douglas would add another run in the top of the 8th before Mt. Hood would exercise their late game magic yet again.

This time it was Rachel Rutledge first with an RBI single to score Darian Lindsey and then on a bases loaded 3-1 fastball, Courtney Cabana singled back up the middle to give Mt. Hood the 4-3 victory sending the Saints into their sixth title appearance in the last eight years.

The Saints, led by head coach Meadow McWhorter, recorded four titles in that eight year span.

Across the park, #1 seeded Bellevue faced #2 seeded Clackamas in a loser out game. With a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the 6th, Clackamas’ Hannah Vandomelen tallied a 3-run home run to give the Cougars a healthy 5-2 lead going into the 7th needing only 3 outs.

However, Bellevue had the answer. The Lady Bulldogs used a 3-run home run from Peyton Gibbs to plate 6 runs on 7 hits in the inning after an untimely error by the Cougars.

Bellevue then recorded the final 3 outs to hold on to win 8-5 and advance yet again to face Douglas on Monday at 9am.

The Bellevue vs. Douglas winner will have to beat Mt. Hood twice to take home the championship.

Douglas topped Bellevue 9-4 in Saturday’s quarterfinal action.

Douglas, a program in its sixth year, made a championship appearance previously in 2013. It would be the first for Bellevue who has placed 4th four times, the last in 2013

The championship game is slated for a 12pm start, weather permitting.

Six remain in NWAC Softball Championship Tournament

PORTLAND— In a winners bracket game, Cinderella Centralia would see its first defeat of the tournament at the hands of power house Mt. Hood led by sophomore All-American Kayla Byers who struck out 10 in a 5-0 victory. Centralia, the 15th seed, upset #2 Clackamas and #7 North Idaho on Friday.

In the other winner’s bracket game, Douglas used a strong performance from Keeley Ainge in the circle to beat Bellevue 9-4 despite a late inning rally by the Lady Bulldogs.

The performance of the day would have go to North Idaho all-star Katie Barron who pitched 4 innings of shut-out softball striking out 6 while going 4-4 at the plate with 3 home runs and 7 RBIs in a 17-0 route of Walla Walla.

North Idaho’s high note would quickly come to an end at the hands of Lower Columbia who after defeating Edmonds 9-5, used a 5 run 1st inning to cruise to a 9-5 victory. LCC’s sophomore All-American Nicole Bolasky, who set the NWAC modern era stolen base record on Friday with her 65th steal, added three more on the day.

Wenatchee Valley would need a big 2-out 2 RBI single from Allie Kopczynski in the 7th to knock out East Region rival Spokane. The Lady Knights would fall short in the following game to number 2 ranked Clackamas and Kylie Gonzales who set a school record with her 16th home run. Gonzales, a sophomore All-American, tallied two homers in the game.

In the final games of the day, the rain finally reared its ugly head suspending play for the remainder of the day leaving two games unfinished – Centralia 3 Clackamas 2 5th inning and Bellevue 4 Lower Columbia 0, 2nd inning. Both games will resume 10:00am on Sunday morning.
