Canby softball picks up third straight
Offense for the Canby High softball team got going early and often in an 8-1 win over Central Catholic on April 5.
Canby got on the board in the first inning and never looked back behind pitcher Abigail Loomis' two-hit pitching performance. She struck out 11 and issued no walks over seven innings.
"I was very proud of how our team came out and scored runs early," coach Ty Kraft said. "We established the momentum early and Abigail pitched another great game."
Canby scored three runs in the first inning, two more in the second as they pushed their overall record to 6-3 on the season.
Offensively, the Cougars tallied nine hits, with Ava Carroll contributing three hits on the day. Loomis and McKenna Kraft had multiple hits to an offense that seems to have found its stride.
Canby didn't commit an error in the game, with Madison Bigej leading the effort by handling nine chances smoothly in the win.
Canby picked up a pair of road wins April 2, heading south for battles with South and North Medford high schools. Canby beat South 2-1, then downed North by a 4-0 count.
