The Washington summer teams closed out last week with home bouts against non-conference foes.
The Demon softball team played a pair of games at Saturday’s home tournament where they shutout a 16-5 Griswold team by a 2-0 score and then fell to No. 8 in 3A West Burlington by an 11-0 count. The orange and black scored both of their tallies against the Tigers in the first inning and that was all the pitching and defense needed in the victory. The Falcons scored five times in the first two innings and six more in the sixth to end the second game early. Washington is now 11-20 overall.
The baseball team welcomed Williamsburg to Dick Sojka Memorial Field on Friday and they couldn’t hold onto a 3-2 fourth inning lead that finished with a 9-3 Raider win. The Demons recorded five hits with Ethan Patterson going 2-for-3 with one run scored and Kole Williams brought in two tallies. Seven pitchers saw time on the mound with Zeke Slagel and Isaac Vetter each going 2 1/3 innings of two run ball surrendering two hits. The team drops to 5-14 on the season.
