Hatchets lose to Boonville

BOONVILLE — The Washington softball team lost in a Big 8 conference game to 3A No. 1 Boonville Monday night 10-0 in six innings. Senior pitcher Ashley Elliot went all six innings for Washington, striking out three. Washington tried to keep the game close, but a six-run inning triggered by a throwing error and a bases loaded double was the difference in Boonville pulling away. Sophomore Lauren White and senior Mattie Graber each had a single offensively for the Lady Hatchets.

Washington coach Bret Graber said, “We competed and improved tonight. We have struggled defensively and in the pitching circle. We have a lot of girls learning new positions due to injuries. Despite the final score, we did some things tonight we can build on to begin improving and being more competitive in the second half of our season.”

The Lady Hatchets will host Mitchell at the Sports Complex Friday. On Saturday, Washington will end their week in a tournament at Terre Haute West Vigo.
