Monroe versus Lake Stevens softball

Jim Scolman

A Lake Stevens Viking slides in safely to third base covered by Monroe Bearcat Maddie Fields while another Viking tags up on second base in the background. The Lake Stevens Vikings sailed to a 10 - 0 lead by the second inning of a game Wednesday, March 20 at Monroe, picking a 17 - 4 win by the end of the game.  

The Vikings used strong hitting, loading the bases several times and took advantage of “walk in” runs to beat the Monroe Bearcats in regulation innings under a darkening sky in Monroe. The Monroe bats awakened in the fifth for four runs, but to little effect.
