Jenkins Cougars sweep Broncos

CHEWELAH – The Jenkins Cougars swept the Lind-Ritzville/Sprague/Washtucna girls fastpitch softball team during a doubleheader April 19.

The scores were 13-2 and 12-0.

“Free bases hurt us” Coach Todd O’Brien said. “And were pressing too much on the mound and in the field trying to make the perfect play rather than just taking the routine out.”

In the first game, the Cougar fielders were well-positioned to keep Bronco base runners off the paths.

Nine walks and seven errors piled up, and gave the Jenkins girls a big lead in the game, which ended after 4 innings.
