BAINBRIDGE - The clouds parted, but not for Chief Sealth.

After a day of torrential downpours and on a soggy field that was wetter than a two-pound sponge, the Bainbridge Spartans swamped the Seahawks 15-0 in girls fastpitch softball Monday.

Bainbridge built an early 3-0 advantage in the second and third innings.

The Spartans unloaded on Chief Sealth in the fourth with 12 runs, however, and the game was called after five innings thanks to the 10-run mercy rule.

Riley Gregoire led Bainbridge offense by going 3-of-3 at the plate. She had a double and three RBIs for Bainbridge.

Fellow Spartans Deahna King and Emma Lindsay both went 3-for-4, and Lindsay brought home four runs. Megan Spray was 2-for-3 with three RBIs. King pitched all five innings for Bainbridge, and finished with four strikeouts.

The Metro League improved the Spartans’ record to 11-3 overall (11-2 Metro League).
