With the help of her Papermaker sisters, Harli Hubbard was untouchable against Washougal March 18 at Camas High School.
The senior struck out 10 Panthers and surrendered two walks and zero hits in five innings pitched. That’s all it took for the Papermakers to win the softball game 18-0.
Camas put five runs on the board in the first inning, three in the second, seven in the third and three in the fourth.
Hubbard went 2-for-4 at the plate with a triple, single, 2 RBI and 3 runs scored. Lena Richards drove in two runs on two hits and scored four times. Katie Schroeder and Cailyn Grindy delivered 2-run singles in the first inning. Jennifer Ross added an RBI single in the first.
Brooke Croeni became Washougal’s first baserunner on a swinging strike three that got past Richards behind the plate. The next Panther bunted the ball square. Richards leaped out of the catching position and threw the batter out to end the top of the second inning. Washougal got two more runners on base by a walk and a hit by pitch, but Hubbard came back with strikeouts and induced ground balls to her teammates in the field.
