Softball: Kubasaki sweeps Kadena to head into Far East on high note
CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa – Kubasaki’s bats went from less-than-brilliant in the first game to resilient in the second, and the Dragons softball team made school history in the process.
Alyssa Frank struck out seven Kadena batters in the nightcap and helped herself with a triple and three RBIs and Zoe Weidley went 4-for-4 with a triple and three RBIs as Kubasaki beat the Panthers 15-3 in the second game of the Okinawa district softball finals on Friday.
In the opener of the best-of-three finals, the Dragons scored three runs with the help of a Weidley RBI single and two errors on the game’s final play in the last of the fifth inning to rally past Kadena 12-11.
