Bellevue College softball hosted their second consecutive round-robin tourney this weekend, this time with better weather conditions as the Bulldogs came away with a 12-2 win over Centralia yesterday and an impressive 13-0 win over SW Oregon on Saturday, highlighted by a no-hitter by Bulldog pitcher Rhaney Harris.
Harris was dazzling in the circle, striking out six without walking a batter. She was one batter away from throwing a perfect game, facing only 16 hitters in the shortened five-inning game due to the run rule. The Bulldogs’ first seven hitters all had hits in the all-around team offensive explosion. Carissa McDowell had two hits and a double to lead the way.
In yesterday’s win over Centralia, Bellevue did their damage early, plating all 12 runs in the first three innings in another shortened game due to the run rule. Nashoni Boyd and Tatum Dow, two of Bellevue’s top returning hitters from last year, led the way as Dow homered and had three RBI’s while Boyd had two doubles and five RBI’s. Dow’s shot in the third was a two-run blast that capped off Bellevue’s early surge.
The Bulldogs will get their first taste on the road, facing six different teams in an NWAC Inter-Region Tourney at the Regional Athletic Complex in Lacey. Play begins Friday March 8 as the ‘dogs face Big Bend at 3:00.
