MUKILTEO Though the visitors, the Marysville fastpitch team quickly made themselves at home against Kamiak High School March 16, cruising past the opposition 12-1, scoring six of their runs in the fifth inning and bringing the game to an early end.
In what coach KT Allyn called a team effort, eight of the nine girls in the Tomahawks rotation found home during the game, as junior slugger Anna West led her teammates with three runs, an RBI and three stolen bases.
West, who led off for M-P, got on base in her first at bat. The next two batters would not make it on, but the bases were soon loaded as West was joined by juniors Skyler Peterson and Kristina Sherriff. A double from Courtney Perrine swept the three Tomahawks in.
Once again, in the second inning, West was the first of three Tomahawks to cross home plate. She was followed in by the first of two runs each for teammates Jenifer Rosie and Miranda Rosebrook, putting Marysville up six runs to Kamiaks zero.
It took until the fifth inning before Marysville started getting in sync again in the batters box, but with one out, Perrine got up to bat and hit a big home run to left-center field. Two at bats later, Kamiak had whittled M-P down to two outs, but the Tomahawk scoring run was far from over, having saved some of their best slugging firepower for last. With junior Christine Atterson on base, teammate Kaitlan Herath came up, hitting a double and batting in Atterson. West and Rosie followed Herath in, and a triple from Rosebrook turned into another notch in Marysvilles column as Peterson followed her with a double.
Kamiaks sole run came during Marysvilles two-inning drought, and Allyn said after the game that she was happy with Rosies performance.
Jennifer Rosie just threw her first game shes a freshman so the butterflies are gone now, Allyn said, adding that the team performance was a turnaround from the Tomahawks 10-6 loss March 14 to Jackson High School. Im proud of them for staying intense throughout the whole game. Its easy not to when you have the lead.
