Softball draws Columbia Basin at NWACs
Team 41 opens the Championship Tournament as the No. 3 seed
LYNNWOOD -- The Edmonds CC softball team will open the NWAC Championship Tournament as the No. 3 seed against No. 14 seed Columbia Basin College on Friday, May 17. First pitch is scheduled for 10 a.m. at Spokane's Dwight Merkel Sports Complex. The Tritons are riding an 11-game win streak into the postseason after taking two games in their regular season finale versus No. 6 Douglas on May 11.
On May 8 Edmonds earned a twinbill sweep of Pierce College with 16-0 and 13-2 triumphs. Both games ended after 5 innings. Cecilia Robbins and Riley Sykes collected wins in the circle, and the Triton offense launched 6 home runs in the doubleheader. Saturday's back-to-back shutout wins were a fitting way to send the Triton sophomores out on top.
In the first game in the top of the 1st, Rhilmina Sagapolutele dove and snagged a line drive at third base, then extended out to double off the Royals runner at third base to end the frame. The teams traded zeros before Edmonds broke through in the 3rd inning. Kalei Cacho-Kekahuna stroked a single to the right center gap and moved up to second base on a passed ball. Ciena Kauhi hit a ball to the shortstop, but on the throw across the diamond the ball came out of the first baseman's glove allowing Cacho-Kekahuna to score. Liliola Vehikite followed with a bunt basehit and another overthrow scored Kauhi from second base.
Vehikite also turned in a stellar defensive gem in the top of the 5th, running back on a line drive to center field, snagging a would-be double for the Royals. In the bottom of that inning Shanelle Lum got the Tritons going with a 2-out double down the right field line. Kauhi singled to score her, then scampered around the bases when the catcher's throw to second base made it into the outfield. Cecilia Robbins spun 7 innings of shutout ball as the Tritons blanked Douglas 4-0.
In game two Edmonds scored 1 run in the bottom of the 1st on a 2-out single by Prestyne Kaimi-Montira. Chantelle Shimabukuro scored after reaching on a 2-out single. She swiped second base to move into scoring position. The Royals threatened all game but sophomore Riley Sykes worked out of jams, notching huge strikeouts when she needed them with runners on base. In the 5th she left Royals' runners stranded on second and third with 1 out; in the 6th she was aided by Taylor Shigeta's nice running grab in right field before ending the inning with a strikeout. Edmonds scored 2 insurance runs in the bottom of the 6th to put the game away on RBI's from Staisa Micky and Cacho-Kekahuna. Final score was 3-0 as the Tritons tallied back-to-back victories to sweep the season series from Douglas for the first time in school history.
Edmonds' seven sophomores were honored between games. This year's class will go down as the most successful in Triton softball history. In 2018 they claimed the North Region title and won a school-record 42 games. This year they've notched 37 wins, which already puts them second overall in school-history.
The Tritons are ranked No. 4 in the final NWAC Coaches Poll of the Year that was released on May 14. First round opponent Columbia Basin is 17-19 overall, and went 14-18 in the East Region this season. Win or lose, Edmonds will play their second game at 3 p.m. on Friday. If they win, they will face the winner of No. 6 Big Bend or No. 11 Olympic.

Baseball hosting NWAC Super Regional
The Tritons are the No. 2 seed in the North Super Regional at Triton Field
LYNNWOOD -- Triton Baseball split games with No. 1-ranked Everett CC over the weekend and finished the regular season as the No. 2 seed from the North Region. As the two-seed, they will now host a NWAC Super Regional this Friday through Sunday at Triton Field. Edmonds first game will be on Saturday, May 18 at 3 p.m. against the winner of Pierce College and Big Bend CC.
The Tritons fell in the opener to Everett 12-2 and responded with a 11-5 win in the nightcap. Friday's games marked the 2nd Annual Military Appreciaton Day at Triton Field. The U.S. Joint Volunteer Service Command provided color guard prior to the start of the game, and veteran couple Keith and Shannon Sessions performed the national anthem and threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Between games eight Triton sophomores were recognized for their contributions to the program over the past two years, which includes a North Region title, an overall record of 72-20, and a 3rd place finish at the NWAC Tournament in 2018.
On Sunday, Everett locked up the North Region title eking out a 3-2 win in game three. The Tritons scored 2
runs in the top of the 8th but were unable to mount the comeback. Noah Fenz dominated in the final game of the series as Edmonds topped the Trojans 6-1. David Gibons, Dylan Cyr, and Jacob Butler had 2 hits apiece in the series finale.
The easiest path to Longview is to win two straight games, one on Saturday and one on Sunday. The Super Regional is double elimination format. Pierce (24-24, 16-9 West) and Big Bend (20-21, 17-11 East) open the tournament on Friday at 5 p.m. The Tritons (32-11, 17-7 North) are ranked No. 4 in the final NWAC Coaches Poll of the season.
Daily general admission for all games is $5 for adults, $3 for teens (12-18) and seniors; children under 12 are free. There are no free gate passes (including NWAC season passes). Cash only please. Any weather or schedule-related changes will be updated on the Triton Athletics social media accounts.
