Monday night the Ilwaco softball team won the "pigtail game" with Winlock in order to advance to the district tournament, which starts tomorrow morning in Centralia (guess you know where I will be headed at 8 am tomorrow morning). Here's a few pix that I liked best from the game. There's a gallery on the sports blog if you were interested in seeing some more HERE
I have no idea why they call it a pigtail game, but it was winner to district, loser to go home. Ilwaco, after starting the season 9-0 lost their last 9 games, so the win was huge for them.
Ilwaco pitcher Alexis Couch can be pretty intense when she's on the mound. That's one hell of a determined look she's got.
The Lady Fishermen won the game by a single run (they've lost several of their games of late by the same margin). And they didn't get any help from the "men in blue" either, as they should have had at least two more runs if not for obvious missed calls.
So my BB is loaded up with some fresh podcasts for the trip over and back tomorrow — now if this wonderful Washington weather would just clear up...
