Stars of the day

SOFTBALL: Prairie’s Irene McGuire got the pitching win over Mountain View. She also hit a solo home run in a 5-2 victory.
BASEBALL: Dylan Butler’s two-run single with one out in the seventh lifted Hockinson to a 9-8 win over Washougal in the first game of a doubleheader. Thomas Kirschbaum’s single plated the go-ahead run in the sixth inning as Hockinson won the second game 5-4.
BASEBALL: Washougal’s Brandon Casteel went 7 for 7 with four doubles in the Panthers doubleheader at Hockinson.
