Spokane sweeps 2007 Track & Field Championships

For the Cougars, the game marked their third of the day to get to the championship game. Earlier they defeated fourth-ranked Wenatchee Valley 4-0 and top-ranked Mt. Hood 5-1. Clackamas opened the scoring manufacturing two runs in the second inning, but the Devils answered in the 4th inning off a 2-run blast by Hayley Ridout to tie the game at 2-2. Red Devils outfielders Courtney Matthews and Tiffany Coates sparked the Lower Columbia defense saving possible Cougar home runs with spectacular catches in the 5th and 7th innings.

The championship marks the second consecutive time the two squads faced off for the title. Going into the contest, both clubs held eight NWAACC titles apiece. Lower Columbia, with it’s ninth title, has won 8 of the last nine championships.
