Washington Slow-pitch Softball

Undefeated at Broken Bow

Run rules for every team Washington played


The Washington slow-pitch softball team was handing out run rules as party favors at the Broken Bow Festival over spring break.

They picked up five wins as they dominated the rest of the field.

“We played really well and run ruled in all our games,” Washington head coach Tylor Lampkin said. “We’re still trying to find our groove but it was a good outing.”

Wright City

In the Wright City game, a 12-0 win, Reese Schrader was 3-3 and homered twice.

Julie Hoehner also homered and finished the day 1-1 with three RBIs.

“Schrader and Hoehner are knocking the cover off the ball right now,” Lampkin said. “They’re also doing an unbelievable job in the infield.’

Schrader plays shortstop and Hoehner plays third base.

Washington scored six runs in the first inning, five in the second and two in the third. Ball game.


Washington beat Kiowa 16-8.

Schrader, the leadoff, homered on her first at-bat in the game and the Warriors were off to a four-run head start.

They scored four more in the second inning and had an 8-2 lead and didn’t let off the gas.


Washington’s 13-1 win over Caney came with more offensive fire power.

Halle Andrews, Shelbie Caveness, Schrader and Hoehner all homered.

Caveness also triple while Andrews added a double to her stat line, as did Olivia Palumbo.

Defensively, Washington did some mixing and matching in the field with players playing multiple positions.

“We’re still trying to figure out what lineup is working that day,” Lampkin said. “Luckily we have a lot of depth. After graduating the six seniors we did we have a lot of new faces on the field. When girls get a chance to play they’re taking their shot.

“All four seniors this season are contributing a lot.”


Washington slammed the door on Howe during their 14-1 win with an 11-run third inning.

Junior Addy Larman homered along with Hoehner.

Senior Emjay Lucas and Caveness tripled and Daphne Palumbo doubled.

North Rock Creek

Washington dropped a 24-22 game against North Rock Creek in an extra-inning thriller Monday.

“That was one of the most fun slow-pitch games I’ve ever been a part of; maybe any softball game,” Lampkin said.

Washington began the game in a hole but put up crooked numbers in the third and fourth innings to take the lead.

It was a back and forth slug fest the rest of the game.

“The coolest thing about it was we had 16 different girls bat in the game,” Lampkin said. “You add in courtesy runners and we had a bunch play. The girls were put in big situations and most of them came through. It was really encouraging to see their grit.”

Washington is 9-3 this season and will travel to Stonewall this week for the Beast of the East Tournament.

“I’m proud of this bunch and ready to keep rolling with them,” Lampkin said.
