Baker seniors earn day off; juniors stage comeback

The Baker senior girls softball all-stars will take a day off from Division I tournament competition today, while the juniors continue to stage a comeback from a first-round loss at their regional tournament.

Senior all-stars

Baker earned its day in the sun after winning its first two tournament games against Alaska and Montana. Those wins propelled Baker into the tournament chamionship game Wednesday at 9 a.m. PDT.

Baker Coach Kathy Taylor said the team will practice this morning then let the girls go see Montana.

They told us about three different waterfalls in the area, and a tiny river that comes out of the ground and right back in to the ground, Taylor said. Well probably go take those in, see some of the other sights, and do some shopping.

Taylor said that because Wednesdays title game is scheduled so early in the day, the girls will get to bed early tonight to get ready for the challenge.

Taylor also noted that Bakers No. 1 fan, Ray Maher, has been with the team the entire tournament.

Rays here, and doing fine, she said.

Baker has dominated its first two opponents, allowing just two runs and three hits in 14 innings.

Amanda Moutsanides and Julie Lovisone, as they did while Baker rolled to its district and state crowns, have overpowered opposing batters from the pitching circle.

And, Bakers offense has been consistant, banging out 13 hits in the two games. Lauren Robbins has been the sparkplug, driving in all of Bakers runs.

Junior all-stars

After spotting Great Falls, Mont., a 6-3 advantage in the second inning, the Baker junior girls softball all-star team scored seven runs in the sixth inning Tuesday, posting a 12-6 victory that left the locals three wins away from advancing to divisional play.

The Baker team was set for a 5 p.m. rematch today against the team from Juneau, Alaska, that beat Baker 9-2 Saturday in the tournament in Mount Vernon, Wash.

A loss would send Baker home. With a victory, Baker would have to beat undefeated Everett, Wash., twice Wednesday to claim the title.
