Tigers split games in Las Vegas
The Douglas High softball team opened its season Thursday with a split against two quality opponents at the Bishop Gorman Kickoff the Season Tournament in Las Vegas.
Allison Meyer and Corryne Diaz combined for five hits and six RBI to help the Tigers to a 10-4 victory against Rancho (Las Vegas) in their first game at Doc Romeo Fields.
In game two, the Tigers lost 11-2 against Aliso Niguel (Aliso Viejo, Calif.).
Meyer hit 3-for-4 with a triple and three RBI and three runs score, while Diaz went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and three RBI to lead the Tigers past Rancho. Kylie Swan also hit 2-for-3, Casey Peck 1-for-2 and Mackenzie Brixey 1-for-3 with two runs scored.
Amanda Hoffman pitched a complete game six-hitter and allowed four runs (one earned) with no walks and eight strikeouts for the win against the Rams, who return nine starters from a team that qualified for last year’s state tournament.
Douglas lost its next game against Orange County power Aliso Niguel. Diaz went 2-for-2 with a triple and Chandler Howe drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single.
On Friday, Arbor View used a seven-run fourth inning rally to vault to a 9-2 win against Douglas. Corryne Diaz hit 3-for-3 with a double and Casey Peck 2-for-3 to lead the Tigers offensively. The Tigers came back to top Woods Cross (Utah), 11-3, as Diaz went 3-for-4, Allison Meyer 2-for-3 with three RBI and Amanda Hoffman homered.
