ILWACO — Arianna Bell held the Hyaks to two runs on two hits and had three hits of her own in the opener, and Gracie Barnett got the win in the nightcap, as Ilwaco swept a Friday double-header with North Beach 13-2 and 11-7.

Hannah Hines and Jordyn Taft also had three hits in game one.

In game two, catcher Lindsy Agee made the Hyaks pay for aggressive baserunning. On four occasions, she retrieved a potential passed ball or wild pitch and got the out at the plate on a runner trying to come in from third. Jaymie Patana went 2 for 2 with two walks in the game.
