PRESCOTT - Waitsburg-Prescott kept its Southeast 2B softball record perfect in a Saturday sweep of Tekoa-Oakesdale-Rosalia.
W-P won 11-6 and 13-3 to improve to 4-0 in league play.
W-P got a lot of help from the T-O-R pitching staff, as the Nighthawks walked 10 in the first game and 14 in the second game.
W-P pushed across seven runs in the fourth of the opener to put this one out of reach. Alyssa Hafen, Dionna Baker, and Katy Hofer each had two hits to lead W-P to the 11-6 win.
W-P didn't waste any time in the nightcap as it jumped to a 7-1 lead after three.
Kazmira Grende went all the way in the circle for WP, and limited T-O-R to five hits. The W-P offense, helped by 14 free passes, rapped out eight hits in posting the 13-3 win.
Ashley Wilson led the W-P offense with two hits.
"They were pretty young," W-P coach Angie Potts said. "When they weren't walking us, we put the bat on the ball."
In a makeup of a postponed earlier match up, W-P hosts Tri-Cities Prep in a league doubleheader Wednesday.

ATHENA - Weston-McEwen's Haley Freske pitched both games of a doubleheader with Stanfield-Echo here Saturday, helping the TigerScots to a 10-0 and 7-6 sweep.
Freske struck out 12 batters in the two games and went 4-for-7 at the plate, with two extra-base hits and two RBI.
Second Game was an eight-inning affair, with W-M's Claire Ely hitting the game-winner in the bottom of the eighth with bases loaded and one out.
Rilei Hill singled, then Freske singled and Ashlynn Kilgore was hit by a pitch to load the bases when Ely brought Hill home.
"Give credit to Stanfield-Echo," W-M coach Jeff Griggs said. "They did a good job in the seventh to get three hits and a sacrifice to score two runs. This tied up the game and sent it into extra innings."
Ely was 5-for-8 with three RBI in the two games.
"I was really proud of Claire," Griggs said. "She had a huge day at the plate."
Hill had three hits in the doubleheader.
Weston-McEwen is now 9-3 overall and 2-0 in Special District 6 softball action.

Mac-Hi splits with
Ontario in GOL action
ONTARIO - The Mac-Hi softball team split a doubleheader with Ontario here Saturday.
The Tigers won game one, 4-2, while the Pioneers bounced back for a 12-2 nightcap win in Greater Oregon League action.
The Pioneers improved to 1-3 in league play.
Mac-Hi managed its two game one runs on four hits.
Kaitlin Erm pitched for the Pioneers and allowed four hits on four run.
"Kaitlin did well to allow Ontario to just the four hits," Mac-Hi Nicole Christian said. "Ontario is known for having a powerhouse of home-run hitters."
Ontario's Jenny Yano pitched both games.
In game one, Yano held Mac-Hi down and struck out 14 batters. In game two, Yano was battered for the twelve runs.
"We couldn't get anything going offensively in game one," Christian said. "But then we exploded in game two and hit like we're capable of hitting. The girls showed a lot of potential at the plate in game two and hopefully we can build on that."
Megan Reed pitched game two and smashed a home run to deep center to lead the 15-hit Pioneer attack.
The Pioneers return to action at 2 p.m. Friday at La Grande for two more league games.
Mac-Hi then hosts six straight GOL games to close the season.
