M-P fastpitch gets first win
After suffering a narrow loss to Stanwood at home, the Tomahawk fastpitch team rebounded to defeat Lake Stevens 7-4 and secure their first conference win.
Freshman Riley Fritz pitched both the March 25 loss at home and the win at Lake Stevens two days later. M-P took an early lead against Stanwood, scoring one run in the bottom of the first inning and two more in the bottom of the second, but the Spartans came up with almost all the offense they needed when they answered with a home run.
Five errors helped the Tomahawks against Lake Stevens as both programs came in searching for their first conference win. With an early 3-0 lead, M-P had all the runs they needed by the time Lake Stevens got on the board in the bottom of the fourth.
Tomahawk baseball sweeps Everett
With margins of just a run, M-P baseball swept Everett in the two-game series March 25 and 27.
Both games took place on Everett fields, but it didnt stop the Tomahawks from winning 3-2 and 1-0. The wins helped M-P improve to .500 in conference, and marked their third and fourth games in six to be decided by a single run. Marysville has won three of those games, including a 10-9 win over Meadowdale.
Senior Frankie Nelson pitched the first game to Marysville, going for all seven innings and giving up just three hits. Sophomore Brennen Steinbaugh performed pitching duties for M-P in the second win, allowing two hits.
The Tomahawks were scheduled to play Stanwood in a two-game series April 1-2 after The Globe went to press, starting another at Lake Stevens April 8.
JV girls golf impresses
The Tomahawk golf team made a splash as the JV girls defeated teams from Everett and Kamiak in a March 26 contest. With a score of 94 Stableford points, M-P easily beat their opponents who totaled 77 and 27 points respectively.
Sophomore Courtney Green, who has been swinging between varsity and JV in her first year out for the golf team, won medalist honors for the meet with a season-best 26 points, besting 25-point efforts from varsity golfers Stacia Ashley and Sara Rott earlier in the season.
We are very excited, said coach Jaci Legore Hodgins.
