Kendall Ferris hit a grand slam in the fourth inning of Whittell softball’s 15-3 trouncing of North Tahoe in five innings on Wednesday.

“All in all, it was very good,” said head coach Dave Galicia. “Base running was better and overall, I was happy with how everyone played.”

Kelsey Kjer pitched all five innings and kept a no-hitter through three.

“I was really happy with the defensive rotation. (North Tahoe) tried bunting and we really had it down,” Galicia said. “(Maggie) Dean had a really good day at third base. A lot of recovering bunts came on her.”

The Lady Vikings sent 11 batters up to the plate in the first inning en route to take a 5-0 lead.

Ferris went 3-for-4 in the game.

“I really have to tip my hat to (Ferris),” said Galicia.

Liz Anderson went 4-for-4 and Gianna Miller went 3-for-4 on the day with a walk.

The win brings the Lady Warriors record to 5-4 in the league and 9-5 overall. The team will travel to Eureka, Nev., Friday to take on the 10-1 Lady Vandals.

“We expect this doubleheader to be a tough one. We need to bring out (our) A-game,” Galicia said.
