Yreka Tourney Day 2 Front copy

The Yreka Miners defeated The Del Norte Warriors 6-3 on Saturday, to earn the Yreka Classic Softball Tournament championship. The Miners went into the seventh inning tied, 3-3, but scored three runs to win it.

Yreka finished pool play on Friday at 2-1, and wound up with an early start on Saturday morning, while top seeds Del Norte and Modoc rested. The Miners shutout Fall River 7-0 in the first game, with pitcher Kendall Moser notching the win. Yreka then hammered Modoc 10-2 in a semi-final game, with Tanaya Wilson recording the victory in the circle. The Miners had lost in pool play to Modoc, 5-4.

Del Norte reached the title tilt via an 11-10 come-from-behind semi-final win over Mt. Shasta. The Bears had a lead going into the bottom of the seventh, but were unable to hold it. Mt. Shasta defeated Trinity, 5-0, earlier in the morning to reach the semi-finals. The Bears finished the tourney 2-3, defeating Trinity in pool play 8-5, and losing to Yreka 8-7 and Del Norte 8-6. Trinity went 1-3 in the tourney, with the Wolves win coming over Fall River in pool play 7-2.

In the tournament final, Yreka took a 2-0 lead in the top of the third inning. The Miners were a guest in their own house due to being the lower seed. Shyanne Rose got the Yreka offense rolling with a two-out triple. Mckenzie Pellizzer drove in Rose with a single. A double by Ashely Cox plated Pellizzer.

Del Norte put up a run in the fourth inning on a single, an error, a steal and a ground out, making the score 2-1.

The Miners answered right back in the top of the fifth. With one gone, Rose singled and then advanced to second and third bases on two wild pitches. Pellizzer walked. Cox reached on a fielder’s choice that erased Pellizzer, but picked up an RBI, when Rose crossed the plate, making it 3-1.

The Warriors battled back in the bottom half of the inning to tie the game, 3-3, with a pair of runs. The runs came on two doubles, a single, and an error.

“When Del Norte tied it up I was getting really nervous, but I was just trying be insanely focused because I knew if I wasn’t focused they could have got ahead of us,” said Moser. (more…)

The Coffee Brake Mt. Shasta Bears Track Athletes of the Week are Preston Blakely and Sophi Ackerman-Mero.

“Preston Blakely managed three events simultaneously: High Jump 5-6 (a PR), Triple Jump 36-3, and Pole Vault 12-0 (ties his PR). At one point he had a coach at each venue working with an official to keep his attempts alive. By the time he went back and forth to all three for a couple of rounds he was pretty tired, but refused to give up any of his attempts. I’ll bet he was quite sore on Saturday,” said Bear Mt. Shasta Coach Steve Nesheim.

“Sophia Ackerman-Mero was individually first in both shot 30-04 and discus 94-5. Two first places speak for themselves,” said Nesheim. (more…)
