The Laker softball team dropped 2 games vs. Clackamas CC last weekend, the Laker’s dropped game #1 with a final score of 2-6 after Breanna Bowling belted a leadoff homerun in the bottom of the first, but it wasn’t enough to stop the #4 ranked Cougars. Bowling also had a double and a triple in the game, but couldn’t get the single to round out the cycle. The Lakers then dropped game #2 0-5, but will head this weekend to the NWAC championships as the #5 ranked team in the NWAC as of this morning. There are still some games to play in the East Region today that may or may not impact the Lakers RPI. If the Lakers hold onto the #5 ranking they will face Everett CC on Friday morning at 10 am in the first round of the NWAC Championships at Delta Park in Portland, OR. A full bracket and championship information can be found at the Championship website: http://www.nwacsports.org/softball/championship.php

The Laker baseball team dropped their last 4 games of the year to the Southern Region Champions, Mt. Hood Saints. The Lakers concluded their season with a 12-33 record overall.
