ARLINGTON — The Arlington High School varsity softball team beat the Kamiak Knights 7-4 on Wednesday, April 18, in their second of three victories last week.
“The game went really well until the sixth or seventh innings, when we gave up a couple of hits,” said AHS Softball Head Coach Lonnie Hicks. Overall, the Eagles played a tight game with an early lead on the Knights, scoring all seven runs in the first four innings of the game.
“We played solid the whole game,” Hicks said. “We held it in for about five innings with no runs. We did really well.”
The Eagles scored two runs in the first inning, three in the second, one in the third and one in the fourth. Kamiak scored four runs in the last three innings.
Arlington players with stunning performances include Lynsey Amundson who went 2-3, with two doubles.
“She’s been doing well all season,” said Hicks. Katelyn McDonald also went 2-3, with one double and one single.
The Eagles are still on top with a conference record of 8-0 and a 12-1 record overall. Arlington faced Monroe High School earlier in that week and defeated them 5-0. Eagles pitcher Ronnie Ladines struck out 14 Bearcats and the win kept the team undefeated in conference play, a rank that they maintained with their victory over Kamiak, as well as their win against Mariner High School on Friday, April 20, that ended in a 13-0 victory.
This week, they face off against Edmonds-Woodway in a home game scheduled for April 26. After that, the Eagles are scheduled to play against Snohomish, Stanwood and Marysville-Pilchuck high schools the week of April 30. Snohomish and Marysville-Pilchuck are ranked second and third in their division, respectively.
