NHS softball season stats
As we noted last week, Naselle placed five players on the All-League softball team. Here are their statistical accomplishments:
Pitcher Brynn Tarabochia slugged five home runs and hit .559, with two-thirds of her hits going for extra bases. She was the winning pitcher in the April 24 District championship game, a 22-5 win over Mossyrock. She had already pitched earlier that day as the Comets played the final innings of the regular-season league title deciding game, also against Mossyrock.
In between these games that same day, Courtney Paul was the winning pitcher in the District semifinal against Oakville. Paul batted .583 in 12 games.
Joining them on the All-League team were shortstop Kylee Tarabochia (.650 with 11 extra-base hits), catcher Hollie Haataia (.645, seven xbh), and centerfielder Mia Watson, who led the team with five triples and batted .634.
