The Wolverine women’s softball team was no match for the Concrete loggers. By halftime, the team had already launched ahead of Concrete and kept the home runs coming throughout the game. Pitcher Audrey Allen had pitched a stellar game, but by the sixth inning, her arm showed signs of wearing out, as walked three. Still, Allen stuck out one and her teammates stepped up to get the other two outs. The final score was 14-6, Wolverines.
The next home game is scheduled for May 3 at 4:45 p.m., against La Conner.
The Wolverine men’s baseball appeared more evenly matched against the Concrete Loggers. The first few innings remained tied at 0. As the Wolverines warmed up, by the third inning, they had started hitting doubles and bringing some of their runners home. Freshman pitcher Graham Learning held the Loggers at bay. The final score was 9-2, Wolverines.
The next home game is scheduled for May 3 at 4:45 p.m. against La Conner.

After being gone on Spring Break for a week I thought we might come back a little rusty but to my surprise, we made a great showing. Jack Mason came out strong and was one under par through 6 holes. Cedarcrest is a short but tight course next to the Grace Academy. When I caught up with him on the seven-hole, Coach Waite told me he was playing beautifully; he had hardly missed a shot. I watched him three putt on holes seven, eight and nine, the last three greens to end up with a score of 38. I could see immediately what he was doing wrong so for you golfers, here is the tip of the week. He had lifted his hands too high and dropped his eyes about 2 inches inside the putter line. If you don’t have your eyes over the ball when putting, it is hard to get the putter lined up properly. After five minutes on the putting green, and making a few corrections, he was back to normal, draining everything! The two 8th graders are locking their spots on the team with solid play, Jack Hess 47 and Finn Graham 55.
The ladies came out ready to play. We had three personal bests; Morgan Douglass 48, Izzy Graham 55 and Yumi Thomas 59. They have discovered that the 3 wood is a lot easier to hit off the tee than the big-headed long driver. Plunk, plunk, plunk, chip on, take a few putts and it’s amazing how well you can play. The remainder of the lady players did not post a 9-hole score.
We have our last away match Thursday 4/21 against Mount Vernon Christian. We have two big events coming up, the Opening Day Scramble April 24 and the Friday Harbor Invitational May 6. We have put together a four-member team for the scramble and they have only one goal in mind: they want to win!
We have been playing golf for a month while most members are just dusting off their clubs for the first time this year. It’s going to be fun to see how they fare under the pressure.
