Beavers Knock Off 3A Timberline on Senior Day


In its last game of the season, the Tenino softball team picked up a Senior Day win over 3A Timberline, 11-2. 

It was a senior-heavy day for the Beavers, who picked up a cathartic win in their final game against a playoff-qualifying 3A Blazers squad on Saturday at home. 

Emily Baxter threw a complete game, giving up two unearned runs with 18 strikeouts in her final performance as a standout ace. 

At the plate, Abby Severse launched her first home run of the season and scored three runs with two walks. Courtney Backman went 2 for 3 with two runs scored and an RBI, and Kayla Feltus went 2 for 4 with a run scored and an RBI. 

Grace Vestal went 1 for 3 with an RBI knock, Juliana Luken added two runs scored and two doubles, and Alivia Hunter went 1 for 4 with an RBI. 

Nine Beaver seniors played their final game in the black, red, and white: Backman, Severse, Baxter, Hunter, Luken, Sophia Hussey, Feltus, Emma Sager-Diello, and Vestal.
