Softball team drops doubleheader to Wapato

The Quincy High School Lady Jacks softball team continued to struggle, dropping a doubleheader to Wapato on April 26 at home, 8-4, and 12-4.
The losses dropped Quincy to third place in Division 2, with an 8-2 record in league and a 2-15 record overall.
“We couldn’t get our bats going until late in both of the games,” Quincy head coach Pauline Baughman wrote in an email.
In the first game, Quincy pitcher Mia Ramirez scored the Jacks’ first run, after Aileen Perez brought her in from second base. Rosey Combs scored Lurdes Guzman in the sixth inning, then Sulema Quintero drove two runs in later in the game.
In the second contest, Guzman pitched for the Jacks, and “The only highlight is Combs hit an inside-the-park home run in the bottom of the seventh,” Baughman wrote.
Next up for the Lady Jacks was a home game against East Valley-Yakima on April 30. The Red Devils lead Division 1 with a 8-1 record in league. Results weren’t available prior to press time. The Jacks then have a doubleheader on April 3, starting at 3:30 p.m. on May 3 against Grandview on the road. The Greyhounds are winless in 10 games.
