Heat sink Pirates

heat-u-14-v-phoenix-front-450.jpgYREKA – The Siskiyou Heat U-14 ASA softball team took down the visiting Phoenix Lady Pirates in both games of a twin bill on Saturday, 12-2 and 10-6.

The Heat established its dominance in the bottom of the first inning of game-one, with an eight-run out burst. Lacie Landrum, Emilie Wagy, Katie Brummett, Baylee Harris, Morgan Deany, and Riva Martin all scored, with lead-off hitter Jena Turner crossing the plate twice in the inning.

Phoenix responded with a pair of runs in the top of the second inning, but that would be the extent of their counter attack. The Heat added four runs in the fourth inning to extend its lead to 12-2. The Heat shut down the Pirates in the top of the fifth inning, leading to a 10-run mercy rule win.

Landrum led the Heat at the plate in game-one, going 3/3 and scoring two runs. Turner was 2/3, scored two runs, and hit a double. Wagy and Brummett both had two walks and scored a pair of runs, while going 1/2. Martin picked up the win in the circle.

yac-300-b.jpgThe Heat quickly took control again in game-two, scoring six runs in the first inning for a 6-0 lead.  Going into the top of the sixth inning, the Heat led 9-2.

The Lady Prates, however, weren’t quite ready to abandon ship, as they put up four runs to cut the lead to 9-6. Heat relief pitcher Krystal Palmer entered the circle in the sixth to stop the Pirate rally. (more…)

Speedster Loogman has Impact

impact-e-loogman.jpgThe Etna Lady Lions varsity track and field team won both the Shasta Cascade League and the Division-III championships this season. One of the big reasons for the team’s success is sophomore speedster Emily Loogman.

At the SCL championships, Loogman won all four of her events—100m, 400m, 800m, and 100m Hurdles. The 400m, 800m, and 110m Hurdles weren’t even close, with Loogman winning all of them by well over two seconds.

Loogman opted out of the 100m at the D-III championships, but smoked the field in the 800m and 100m Hurdles. Loogman also won the 400m, holding of a tough challenge by Mt. Shasta’s Callie Toews.

y-ad-1-click.jpgLoogman has the fourth fastest 100m Hurdles time in the North Section this season at 16.64. Her best 400m and 800m times are in the top-10 in the section.

In addition to track, Loogman also played on Etna’s varsity volleyball team, and was a standout player on Etna’s JV basketball squad.

The Impact Player Award is given on a monthly basis and goes to Siskiyou County high school athletes, male or female, that have had a significant impact on the success of their team. I select the players based on my own observations, often in consultation with the player’s coaches. (more…)
