Softball: TMHS scores 10 runs in 3 innings, tops Sitka

The Thunder Mountain High School softball team scored 10 runs in three innings to put enough distance between them and the Sitka High School Wolves to notch another conference win. Up by eight after five innings, the game was stopped by the mercy rule.

Senior Makayla Harp led from the plate and the mound, earning three hits on four at bats for three RBIs and three runs scored. On the mound, Harp had four strikeouts on 2.1 innings.

After Sitka’s one-run first inning, Thunder Mountain scored three in the first off a one-RBI Harp double and a two-RBI single from sophomore Megan Dallas.

TMHS added four more in the second of two hits from Harp, a triple from junior Haleigh Dicarlo, and a single from junior Alondra Echiverri.

Sitka scored two in the third and TMHS answered with three runs of their own, going up 10-4 after three innings. After a scoreless fourth, TMHS added one to their score, and topped the game with a one-RBI double by senior Taylor Beardslee in the bottom of the sixth.
