Washington gave up just one hit, but saw its softball season come to an end Thursday against Lafayette.

Playing at home, second-seeded Lafayette took advantage of its opportunities and a few Washington mistakes in a 3-0 win in the semifinals of the Class 4 District 3 Tournament.

Third-seeded Washington (16-9) defeated sixth-seeded Pacific (7-16) Wednesday in the opening round at Lakeview Park, 11-0, in six innings.

Lafayette (20-4) played top-seeded Eureka (23-4) in the district championship game Friday afternoon.


Washington belted three home runs in the win over Pacific.

The game ended in the bottom of the sixth inning on a two-run homer by Megan Micke.

“Micke reminds me of Kaelie Smith. She’s the smallest girl out there and hits the ball hard. It messes with the defense because you think she’s bunting, and then she hits a bomb,” said Washington Head Coach Phil King. “I’m glad she’ll be around for two more years.”

Courtney Kedroski gave the Lady Jays a 1-0 lead with a home run in the first inning.

Megan Freitag connected for a two-run homer in the fourth inning.

Washington collected 13 hits in the contest.

“We hit the ball hard all night. The girls definitely were ready to roll,” King said. “Our seniors led the way. It’s a nice ending for them.”

Kayla Pilgram tossed the first five innings for the win. She allowed no runs on three hits with one walk and one strikeout.

Katie Irwin tossed a perfect sixth inning, striking out one.

Pacific had three hits in its final game.

“We had some runners on base, but couldn’t get them around to score,” said Pacific Head Coach Tonya Lewis. “I’m happy with how our season went. We did really well in conference. We played a lot of close games.”

Elanna Osthoff (two doubles) and Kaelie Smith (one double) both registered three hits for the Lady Jays. Osthoff added four RBIs and scored a run. Smith had one RBI and one run.

Kedroski, Freitag and Lilli Mantle each finished with two hits. Freitag also was hit by a pitch, scored three runs and had two RBIs. Kedroski scored twice and had one RBI. Mantle added two RBIs.

Micke had one hit, two walks and two runs. MC Landolt registered one hit and one run. Abbey Martin was hit by a pitch and scored.

Emily Copeland had two hits for Pacific. Amber Zurliene added one hit. Claire Schulte drew a walk.

Marissa Tate pitched the first 3.1 innings. She allowed seven runs on nine hits with three walks and three strikeouts.

Meagan Wakefield tossed the remainder of the game, allowing four runs on four hits with two hit batters and one strikeout.

“Our young pitchers and catchers haven’t quite figured out how to maneuver a ballgame. That’s something we’ll work on this winter,” Lewis said. “I expect Marissa to come back better next year. We have to get our pitching going.”


Lafayette broke a scoreless tie with two runs in the bottom of the fourth inning without a hit, but took advantage of a walk, an error and a fielder’s choice.

The Lancers added a run in the bottom of the fifth.

Washington had the tying run at the plate in the seventh inning, but couldn’t capitalize.

“I knew it was going to have to be a low score for us to win because they have a good pitcher. We had runners in scoring position three out of the first four innings and had someone on base in five innings,” King said. “We kept the pressure on them, but just couldn’t push across any runs. Our fourth inning defense killed us. Walks and errors always hurt.”

Pilgram was Washington’s starting pitcher and tossed three perfect innings, striking out one batter, before being replaced by Kedroski.

In three innings, Kedroski allowed three runs on one hit and two walks.

“Kayla pitched awesome. She doesn’t throw hard, but she locates. She doesn’t walk people and is a smart pitcher,” King said. “It makes me look like an idiot taking her out with a perfect game, but that was the plan all along. We were hoping from Kayla to Courtney, there was enough of a difference to offset their offense. They didn’t hit us. I’d do it again if given the chance.”

Landolt, Micke and Martin each had a hit for the Lady Jays.

Maddie Seifert pitched all seven innings for Lafayette. She had six strikeouts.

“Our senior class had 16 wins this year and 17 last year. It’s been one of the best senior classes we’ve had. MC has the school record for most hits. Kaelie is second and Courtney is fourth. Courtney is tied for most home runs and has the school record in RBIs. I joke with Courtney that every school record she has, Freitag is going to break next year,” King said. “The future looks good. We’re losing a lot of offense, but we’ll bring back two pitchers and our center fielder. We’ll be strong up the middle.”
