Softball: Richland routs Bellarmine Prep, Mead

March 16, 2013 


Richland pitchers Paige Goulet and Kayla Andrews not only did their job in the circle, but they got it done at the plate, too, in Saturday’s nonleague softball mixer at Columbia Playfield.


Andrews went 4-for-4 with two home runs and four RBIs as the Bombers rolled past Bellarmine Prep of Tacoma 12-2 in six innings. The junior right-hander then gave up one hit, walked one and struck out eight in a 12-0, five-inning victory over Mead.


Goulet, a senior left-hander, pitched five innings in the Bellarmine Prep game and held the Lions scoreless. Against Mead, she hit her first high school homer, and it was a big one — a three-run blast in the fourth.
