Things started out good and kept getting better for the McNary High School varsity softball team at Central Oregon Spring Break Tournament last week. The girls went undefeated to take the tournament title.
“Some of the non-conference games where we faced the really good pitchers helped us prepare for the tournament and that’s when it all came together,” said Kevin Wise, McNary head coach.
The Lady Celts played nearly flawless defense in their four-game run and pounded out 38 runs over the two-day tourney March 25 and 26.
“Our hits just kind of strung together for the most part and we worked as a team and played the best we could,” said sophomore Kianna Villareal.
McNary started the tournament with an 11-1 win over Crook County High School that saw senior Paige Bouska go 3 for 4 at the dish with a double.
