Emily Benson had five hits, and Cylie Richards drilled a home run as the Kamiakin Braves softball team swept the visiting Southridge Suns 10-2 and 13-2 on Tuesday to secure a share of the Mid-Columbia Conference title with Richland.
We didnt play as crisp as we would have liked to, but we got two wins against a quality opponent, Kamiakin coach Tim Bisson said. Were happy to win the league title. That was obviously one of our goals.
The Braves will wind down the regular season with two nonleague games against Camas and Battle Ground before hosting a sub-regional game next Tuesday at 4 p.m.
