Despite some adversity as the season gets underway, the Indians fought hard against Tillamook.

Two days after having its opener rained out, the Molalla High softball team got its 2022 season started with an 8-1 loss at Tillamook on March 16.

The Indians don't have a JV team this year due to lack of players, so head coach Amanda Bethune is working on the logistics of a single varsity squad. Against Tillamook, Kylie Brownlee opened on the mound and went five innings before giving way to freshman A'Rian Bond. Both pitchers had good moments on the mound, according to Bethune. The Herald-Pioneer. Molalla got its lone run early in the game when Marinda Haak delivered a base hit that scored Alison Wickham. After that, the offense dried up and Tillamook pulled away for the win. "For having our fair share of adversity, the girls were able to come together and battle through their first game heads held high," Bethune said. "There were some great outfield catches and a few throwdowns to get some base runners, including one from Jade Phillips from centerfield." Molalla continues its season at the Seaside Spring Break Tournament March 25-26. They'll take on Rainier and Stayton on March 25, then Umatilla on March 26.
