Softball finishes season at districts

SPIRIT LAKE — Junior Acacia Pecor did a little bit of everything for the Timberlake Tigers on Wednesday at the best-of-3 series for 3A District 1 against Bonners Ferry on Wednesday.

She threw it.

She swung it.

Quite simply, she was nearly perfect.

Pecor struck out seven, allowing only a second inning walk in a 10-0 win for the Tigers, sweeping the 3A District 1 championship series against Bonners Ferry to advance to the state tournament starting next Friday in Blackfoot.

“Acacia was excellent in the circle and hitting the ball today,” Timberlake coach Casi Lupinacci said. “The girls just did a good job of taking care of business.”

Alycia Cameron hit a grand slam for Timberlake in the second inning.

“She’s basically our second leadoff hitter and got a great swing on the ball,” Lupinacci said. “That was a really big moment for us.”

The Badgers finished their season at districts with a 3-16 record. A season summary story on Badger softball will run in next week’s paper.
