Eatonville’s Brooklynn Lucht continued her assault of opposing pitchers again last Wednesday, March 20. This time it was against rival Orting.

Lucht went 4-4 with a two-run home run and a grand slam while driving in eight runs to help lead the Cruisers to a 17-0 thrashing of the Cardinals. That was Brooklynn’s third and fourth home runs of the season.

Haley Olson threw a gem of a game for the Cruisers, allowing zero runs on two hits and striking out six through five innings of work to pick up the win.

The Cruisers got things started in the first when freshman Hailey Rath went yard with a solo shot. She hit another home run in the second inning to match Lucht’s total on the day.

The Cruisers had big innings in the second and the fourth where they scored seven and six runs respectively. Eatonville took the victory with a final score of Eatonville 17 Orting 0.
