Lightning strikes four times for title

The La Grande Lightning, a 16-and-under club softball team, made short work of the field at the Amateur Softball Association Gals Invitational in Caldwell, Idaho, winning all four games handily to claim the team title this past weekend.

After cruising past the Magic Valley Sooners 14-2 in four innings in the semifinals, the Lightning dusted off Meridian, Idaho, 12-3 in the championship to claim the title, ending the finale on a 10-0 run. The Lightning outscored their opponents 51-11 over the weekend.

“We had a very well-rounded team,” head coach Woody Wright said. “We were very strong offensively as well as defensively.”

The Lightning will look to extend their hot start to the summer next weekend, when they take part in the Stars and Stripes Invitational in Salem.

“We allowed only 11 runs the entire tournament, and we scored 51” Wright said. “Behind our four primary pitchers, we had 22 strikeouts, five walks and only two errors.”

Wright could not single out a person that stood out, as the entire team pulled its weight during the four games. The team consisted of three La Grande players, three kids from Union and Elgin, and three from Milton-Freewater. After a successful high school season, including a state title for the girls from Union, it was a fantastic start for the summer.

“It was our first tournament out of the gate,” Wright said. “We had one practice as a team.”

The Lightning will look to extend their hot start to the summer next weekend, when they take part in the Stars and Stripes Invitational in Salem.

“That will be a challenging tournament,” Wright said. “There will be about 30 teams, so its good we got to shake the cobwebs off this weekend in Caldwell.”
