“We’re totally excited,” Head Coach Steve Bonde said of the atmosphere following the softball team’s sweep of the South Umpqua Lancers. “They didn’t even know, or at least I wasn’t making a big deal out of it.”

The Lady Bruins took the Lancers to task in game one, destroying them 8-1. 

Courtney Kay pitched a complete game with four strikeouts, one walk and a 0.00 ERA.


Kayla Webre proved to be a force, hitting 4-for-5 with two runs and 3 RBIs. Megan Strain also had a hot bat, hitting .500 with one run and a RBI.

The second game took 10 innings but the Bruins accomplished what they set out to do: win 12-11.

Hannah Goergen started game two and pitched 4.2 innings before Kay came in for relief.

Halle Ostman provided much needed offense hitting 3-for-4 with three runs, 1 RBI and two walks.

“They stayed focused and played every inning, every out and every pitch,” Bonde said. “It was a great team win.”

The Bruins travel to face either Mazama or Phoenix next week in an OSAA round-of-32 play-in game.
