Softball Adds Three More Wins, Improves to 8-1
Triton Softball continued a successful start to the 2018 campaign, winning three of four games at Bellevue College this past weekend against South region opponents Chemeketa CC and Southwestern Oregon CC. On Saturday Edmonds topped Chemeketa 13-5 in six innings and later drubbed Southwestern Oregon 9-1 (6). The SWOCC Lakers handed the Tritons their first loss of the season on Sunday, 6-4, but Edmonds responded with a blow out 21-1 (5) victory over Chemeketa.
Softball is now 8-1 as they prepare for the Inter-Region Tournament this weekend at the Regional Athletic Complex in Lacey. When the schedule is released, we will announce it on our social media.
