Lady Vikings sweeps Incline, regular season finale Wednesday

Douglas Etten - Tahoe Daily Tribune

CARSON CITY, Nev. – The South Lake Tahoe softball season is nearing the stretch run, and the Lady Vikings gave themselves a nice push into the final week of the regular season by sweeping two from Incline last week in Carson City.

They took game one 4-1 then came back in game two, winning 7-2.

In game one, senior Mel Smith was almost untouchable in the circle as she faced just 25 Incline hitters, going the entire length. She finished with 17 strikeouts, only walked one and surrendered just two hits.

She was nearly just as good in the second game, going the distance there as well, striking out 12, walking just three and giving up just five hits.

At the plate she was nearly as flawless. In game one she was three for three with two singles and a solo home run to lead the way. Kaila Griffis was two for three at the dish. She had a run batted in and two singles. Mariah Meagher , Melanie Grady, Brittany Sanchez, and Mel Sabac each had a hit.

Game two highlights

Senior Mel Sabac was the story at the plate in game two. She went three for four, smashing two singles and a double to finish with two RBI on the afternoon. Smith was two for four with two singles while her catcher Sid Loomis had a stellar defensive afternoon. She caught two Incline base runners trying to steal, and helped her team at the plate also going two for four with a single, double and one RBI.

Brittany Harper had two hits on the day. Both were singles as she knocked in one. Meagher had a hit and run batted in while Sam Durham went a perfect two for two and also finished with an RBI.

The South Lake Lady Vikings will wrap up their regular season Wednesday at home in South Lake Tahoe.
