LAUREN LUNT • LOWER COLUMBIA
SOPHOMORE • CATCHER
Lauren Lunt, Port Angeles HS, Port Angeles, WA.
Sophomore transfer Lauren Lunt helped lead the Red Devils to a 3-1 weekend over Clackamas and Clark. Lunt led all LCC hitters with 7 extra base hits including 5 home runs for a total of 11 RBIs. Her consistent hitting leads 6th ranked LCC in most categories including doubles, home runs and RBIs.
"Lauren is hardworking and a selfless teammate," said Red Devils head coach Traci Fuller. "She has put in a substantial amount of innings as catcher lately, while also producing runs with timely hits and power at the plate. She has a competitive attitude, is a great ball player, and is a joy to have on our team- making her very deserving of this award!"
NWAC ATHLETES OF THE WEEK - MAY 8

Top ranked Bellevue completed another weekend sweep of North opponents Everett and Highline lead by Harris’ two complete game wins. In total, she went 13 innings scattering 7 hits for 3 runs and striking out 13. The 2 wins push her record to 18-2 on the year for the Bulldogs who’ve won 20 of their last 21 games.
"Rhaney is extremely deserving of this award," said Bulldog head coach Leah Francis. "She's worked hard all off season to improve both her physical and mental skill sets and it is paying dividends for her and her ability to succeed this year. Rhaney is our emotional leader and one of the most enthusiastic players we've ever had. I'm lucky to have had the opportunity to coach her and am extremely proud to call her a Bulldog!"
