Softball Hits Off Season with Wins
By The Molokai Dispatch Staff
The Molokai High Softball team came up to bat with Hana last weekend, hosting two games and won both.
Friday’s score was 20-5 with a 15-run mercy rule in four innings. Piimoku Victorino homered and tripled and scored four runs. Genesis Gomez-Kahookano had three hits and Masina Borden-Phillips pitched a no hit complete game.
Saturday’s seven-inning game finished 25-15. Victorino was four for five with two home runs and three RBIs, Natalia Pastrana four for five with a home run and three RBIs, and Kekaimaile Maikui was also four for five with five RBIs.
Molokai finished the weekend 2-0.
“With a very young team and only five weeks to prepare, our Lady Farmers softball did awesome this weekend,” said first year Head Coach Kalei Pastrana. “As they continue to work hard during practice and progress in the game of softball, we watched as they played their first two games with a desire to learn and grow in this sport. As a coaching staff, we are so proud and excited to witness these young ladies grow and love the game of softball.”
Molokai will play at home again against Lanai April 1-2.
