PILOT ROCK — Waitsburg-Prescott’s softball team went 1-2 at the Pilot Rock tournament Friday and Saturday.

W-P opened the tournament Friday with a 14-3 mercy-rule win over Umatilla.

Ten different W-P batters notched hits in the win.

“We initially struggled with Umatilla’s young pitcher because her speed isn’t something we’re used to,” W-P coach Angie Potts said of the win. “It was hard for the girls to be patient at the plate and let the ball get to them. This game gave us a good opportunity to work on several things offensively.”

W-P outhit host Pilot Rock in Saturday’s first game, 10-7, but committed five errors and wound up with a 7-4 loss.

“We matched up pretty well with Pilot Rock,” Potts said, “we just weren’t able to string together the hits in order to score the runs needed. On the defensive side, we struggled to field the ball cleanly and make the plays.”

W-P ended its tournament with a 25-1 loss to Enterprise.

“Enterprise has one of the best hitting teams I’ve seen in a long time,” Potts said. “They were solid through their entire lineup.”

W-P next visits Wa-Hi for a single game Tuesday at 3 p.m.
