The Tooele High girls proved themselves worthy of the state playoffs on Saturday in Cedar City with a solid 13-0 victory over Logan.
Though the Buffs only had two innings where they scored — the second and the fourth — they stacked up big runs those innings, with six and seven, respectively.
Senior Kamryn Grover not only scored one of the teams five home runs, but she also pitched a no-hitter.
The other four home runs came from Amber Lujan, Jenna Gowans, Payton Hammond and Blake Hervat. Mercy Deryke and Hervat each had a double.
The Stansbury girls struggled in their first-round game, losing 2-1 to Ridgeline on Saturday in Nephi.
The Stallions’ only run came from Hannah Thompson’s RBI single to send Ashley Thompson in for the score. Ridgeline’s two runs came in the third inning.
Stansbury turned around Saturday and played Hurricane in a do-or-die situation to remain in the state playoffs. Hurricane came out with force in the first inning, scoring three runs to the Stallions’ one, but then Stansbury put a hold on them for the remainder of the game, only allowing two runs in the fourth and fifth innings.
SHS bested Hurricane’s batting averages .438 to .258. Although they had no home runs, Lindsey Allie and Kaeley Loader hit doubles for SHS. And, the team was proactive at stealing bases, with five players racking up more ground.
Stansbury will be playing the loser of the Bear River-North Sanpete game Thursday at 3:15 p.m. in Spanish Fork. Tooele will be playing first-seeded Cedar at 1 p.m.
