Juneau Wins 1, Loses 1 On Tourney’s First Day


Sentinel Sports Writer

  The Juneau-Douglas High School: Kalé Crimson Bears softball team opened the ASAA Division II State Softball Championships with a 9-1 win over Kodiak and a 5-3 loss to North Pole, Thursday, at Anchorage’s Cartee Fields.

  “It’s the first steps of a marathon,” JDHS coach Lexi Razor said. “I think we were hitting consistently from the first inning, so that is helpful. They were a little sleepy this morning but the girls came alive.”

 The JDHS Crimson Bears built up a 9-0 lead after four innings against the Kodiak Bears and needed only to stop any major run damage for three outs in the top of the fifth to end the game by run rule.

  After giving up a lead-off single, JDHS sophomore pitcher Taiya Bentz struck out the next batter.   

  Two more Kodiak players reached on singles that scored Kodiak junior Luana Farmer but JDHS’ Bentz handled a ground ball and threw to Mila Hargrave at first base for an out and Bentz struck out the next batter to end the game.

  Hargrave started the game in the circle and went 3.1 innings, allowed just two hits, walked two batters and struck out six. Bentz relieved for 1.2 innings, allowed three hits and one run and struck out two.

  Juneau scored a run in the bottom of the first inning as Dale doubled in freshman Gwen Nizich. They added 5 runs in the second inning as Nizich reached on an error scoring senior Amira Andrews, Dale doubled scoring sophomore Tatum Billings and Nizich, senior Mariah Schauwecker bunted scoring Dale, and Hargrave hit a sacrifice fly scoring Schauwecker.

  JDHS scored 2 more runs in the third inning as Nizich doubled in senior Gloria Bixby and Dale singled in Nizich. The Crimson Bears’ final run came across in the fourth inning as Hargrave led off the at-bats with a home run.

  “The second game against North Pole was close,” said Razor. “North Pole has strong hitters.”

  JDHS scored the first run against North Pole in the top of the first inning as Chloe Casperson singled to center field, advanced to second base on an error, reached third on a passed ball and scored on a ground ball out by Dale.

  North Pole scored 4 runs in the bottom of the first inning for a 4-1 lead.

  JDHS added another run in the top of the fifth inning as senior Carlynn Casperson earned a lead off walk and two outs later advanced on passed balls to third base and scored on a single by Ch. Casperson to trail 4-2.

North Pole senior Madison Kurzenberger hit a lead-off home run in the bottom of the fifth for a 5-2 lead.

  JDHS’ final run came in the top of the sixth inning as Schauwecker hit a lead-off single, advanced to second on a passed ball and to third on a wild pitch, and scored on a single by Yadao.


  In other action North Pole beat Kodiak 22-4, Delta topped Kenai 20-8, Delta defeated Sitka 9-1 and Sitka beat Kenai 20-8.

  Thursday’s pool play action placed the teams for the double elimination tournament starting today.

  Today’s Games:

 GM1 - 10 a.m. Sitka vs. Kodiak at 10 a.m.

 GM2 - 12:15 p.m. JDHS vs. Kenai at 12:15 p.m.

  GM4 - 2:45 p.m. Delta Junction vs. GM2 winner.

  GM5 - 5 p.m. elimination, Loser Gm1 vs. Loser Gm4.

 GM6 - 5 p.m. elimination, Loser Gm2 vs. Loser Gm3.
