Bethany Bowen and Haleigh Holmes combined for a no-hitter as Toledo shellacked Wahkiakum to the tune of 16-0 in three innings at home on Thursday.
“We had a good game tonight,” Toledo coach Chad Williams said. “We’re heading in the right direction.”
Bowen fanned four batters on the mound, while Brynn Williams went 2-for-3 at the plate and Abbie Marcil was 2-for-2 hitting. Candace Clark was praised for a diving catch in right field.
“Defensively, we looked really solid,” Williams said. “We ran the bases really well.”
Toledo improves to 3-0 on the season and travels to take on Adna (3-0), the defending 2B state champions, on Monday.
“We’re excited to see where we match up,” Williams said.
Haley Rainey mowed down 18 batters and allowed just one hit as Adna held off Toutle Lake for a 6-4 victory at home on Thursday.
“Hailey threw really well today,” Adna coach Bruce Pocklington said. “We did not play catch very well. We made a few errors; mostly throwing errors.”
The Pirates committed eight errors on the day to keep the Ducks in the game, which might be the most Adna has had since Pocklington took over as head coach, he said.
The Pirates scattered seven hits, led by Natalie Loose going 2-for-3 with an RBI, Ava Simms going 1-for-3 with a run scored and Keaton Dowell laying down an excellent drag bunt that extended an inning and led to a couple scores.
“We’ve got to get our bats going,” Pocklington said. “We had nothing hit really hard. Toutle was more aggressive at the plate and took better swings.”
Adna (3-0) hosts Toledo (3-0) on Monday in a battle of unbeatens.

“Napavine played good ball tonight,” Bowen said. “They were just making plays. Hats off to Napavine. It was one of our better showings. We fought, it was just that one inning that sunk us.”

“Give a shoutout to Kalama,” Onalaska coach Rich Teitzel said. “They struggled but kept their heads high.”

For the second-straight game, Mossyrock mercy-ruled an opponent in three innings, this time a 16-0 defeat of Taholah at home on Thursday.
Vikings’ pitcher Jolee Hadaller threw a five-strikeout no-hitter with two walks as Mossyrock moved to 2-0 to start the season. The Vikings were coming off a 27-0 win over Oakville last week on opening day.

Alexandria Rueda led the Vikings at the plate, going 1-for-1 with a two-run triple in the first inning and two walks. Hailey Brooks was 1-for-2 with a double, and Gracie May West and Hadaller were each 1-for-1 with a double, respectively. The Vikings drew 13 total walks, including three hit-by-pitches.
