IHS softball falls in doubleheader

Santa Fe Trail's Kaelee Washington struck out 17 of 21 batters she faced Tuesday in a no-hit, no-walk perfect game win over Iola's softball team. IHS head coach Chris Weide said Washington's gem was the best he'd seen in his career as a softball coach.

CARBONDALE — Iola High’s softball team had its hands full Tuesday against Santa Fe Trail pitcher Kaelee Washington. “She’s one of the best pitchers I’ve seen in all my years of coaching,” IHS head coach Chris Weide said.

Washington pitched a game for the ages, retiring all 21 Iola batters — 17 by strikeout — in a 4-0 win.

Iola’s offense picked up a tick in the second game, but a few too many lapses turned into an 8-1 defeat.
