Indians and Irish invade Warrior turf

Wa-Hi's Alyson Ambler (top) pitches for the Blue Devils as the team opened its season against Touchet in a three-team jamboree Saturday.

The Wa-Hi softball team hosted Touchet and DeSales for three three-inning games in a jamboree at Murr Field Saturday.

The games almost didn't go off as planned, when wet spring weather forced Wa-Hi grounds crews to lay down 2.5 tons of moisture-absorbing Playball on the dirt.

"They started at 6:30 a.m. and worked until about 11 a.m. to get the field ready for us, raking it all in. I wasn't sure it would be ready but they had it done," said Wa-Hi softball coach Jerry Humphreys. "They did an incredible job for us."

The effort of the girls in uniform wasn't too bad, either, he said.

"It was really good for all the teams to have a chance to get their uniforms on and go out and play," he said. "It turned out to be a pretty nice day."

Wa-Hi, Touchet and DeSales each played two games in the jamboree.

"There were three good games today," Humphreys said. "All of the pitching looked good."
