    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Juneau-Douglas High School: Kalé Crimson Bears softball team put up 10 runs in the first inning on their path to a 16-3 four-inning conference win over Sitka, Thursday, at the Lady Wolves’ Moller Field.

      “The girls were really hitting well,” JDHS coach Alexandra Razor said. “They picked up where they had left off in Ketchikan which was great. We’ve put in a lot of work in the off season and up until now and I think they are just being relaxed at the plate and hitting the line drives that we know they can.”

      JDHS sophomore Chloe Casperson, junior Mariah Schauwecker, junior Anna Dale, and sophomore Mila Hargrove had two hits each, and junior Zoey Billings, sophomore Kiah Yadao and freshman Tatum Billings one hit each. Sophomore Tristan Oliva, Hargrave and T. Billings had two RBI each, Schauwecker, Dale, Yadao and junior Gloria Bixby one RBI each. Casperson, Schauwecker, Dale, Hargrave, Z. Billings, Yadao and T. Billings scored two runs each, and Oliva and Bixby one run each.

      “Chloe Casperson did a good job at the plate and in center field,” Razor said. “Anna Dale did a great job behind the plate. She had a couple pop flies that were foul. She caught one of them, a couple other ones were hard to gauge but she went after them, so she did really well.”

      Yadao pitched the four innings and allowed four hits and three runs while striking out three batters.

      “She was doing well,” Razor said. “It was nice to see her finding her stride and dealing with frustrations when pitch calls were off a little bit but she did well.”

      JDHS remains in Sitka to play a conference game against the Lady Wolves at 11 a.m. Friday, followed by a non-conference game at 2 p.m.

      The Crimson Bears are scheduled to travel to California for a two-game series next week.

      “We are looking forward to seeing different competition, seeing some colleges and having some fun,” Razor said.
