Softball Roundup: South Kitsap, Olympic close regular season with victories

GRAHAM — The South Kitsap fastpitch team finished the regular season tied for second with Rogers thanks to an 11-1 victory over Graham-Kapowsin on Thursday.

The bats stayed hot, scoring four runs in the first inning and six in the third. Myanna Henke had two-RBI singles in both of those innings, finishing 2 for 2 with four RBI on the day.

Jordynn Lawrence went 2 for 4 with a double and two RBI and Kaitlynn Johnston tripled in a run as part of a 2 for 3 day.

Jessica Fessenden struck out six in five innings, yielding just one unearned run.

There will likely be a coin flip between South Kitsap and Rogers for the No. 2 and 3 seeds in the 4A West Central/Southwest bi-district tournament as both teams finished with 13-3 records in league play and split their two head-to-head matchups.

Either way, South Kitsap will open play at 4:30 p.m. on May 17. The tournament takes place at the Kent Service Club Ballfields.
