With two wins apiece at the Narrows League softball tournament yesterday, both Bellarmine Prep and Wilson find themselves battling today for the league’s top seed to the district tournament in 4A and 3A, respectively.

The Lions took a 7-2 win in a loser-out match against Central Kitsap in the first round yesterday, scoring six runs in the first two innings. Alyssa McKiernan, Alex DeStephano and Rachel Sorensen had two runs batted in apiece, and starter Courtney Schwan picked up the complete-game victory. The Lions then won 3-2 over Olympia in their second game, as Ashlynn Ota’s single to score Madison Covell in the sixth inning proved to be the game winner. Rachel Barcena pitched five strong innings to pick up the win for the Lions.
