SEATTLE - The Spartans romped to their second semifinal win with an 18-2 dusting of Nathan Hale in girls fastpitch softball in the Metro Tournament this week.

Bainbridge needed just five innings to put the Raiders away. The Spartans scored three runs in the first inning, then another five in the top of the second, to jump ahead 8-0.

Bainbridge erased all doubt of the game’s eventual outcome when the Spartans put another four runs on the board in the third to lead 12-0.

The Raiders mustered two runs in the bottom of the third to close the gap to 12-2, but Bainbridge unloaded in the fourth with another six runs to underscore the win.

Deahna King pitched for the Spartans and had four strikeouts. It was her eighth win of the season (8-4).

Megan Spray swung a big bat for Bainbridge. She went 3-for-4 with a double and a home run. She finished with five RBIs and scored two runs.

Catie Muir also bolstered the Bainbridge offense in a big way. She was 3-for-4 with a double and five RBIs.

Fellow Spartans Lauren Vchulek and Natalya Niehaus were both perfect for BHS with 1-of-1 batting. Vchulek and Niehaus both had doubles and an RBI, and scored four runs.

The win improved Bainbridge to 14-4 on the season.
