SOFTBALL (1-4)Friday, Walla Walla (5-3) away.* The games the 17th are the beginning of East Region play.  When May 13 comes around each squad will have 32 league contests.* In the past 4-1/2 seasons the Knights have been on a roll against the Warriors, winning 15 of 18 and taking the series lead.  After 94 games WVC now leads 51-43.* Oh yes, St. Patrick’s Day.  The “Wearing of the Green” has been a good day for the Black and Silver.  After dropping their first two March 17 games they have now won seven in a row.* The second game will be the Knights’ 800th on the road in 34 years of the sport.  The team is 494-304 (61.9%).

Saturday, Columbia Basin (2-5) away.* A year ago the Hawks turned the tables on the Knights with four wins in as many games.  Prior to that the Knights had dominated with 23 wins in 26 contests.* Wenatchee Valley leads the series 52-23 and is 25-12 in Pasco.

BASEBALL (0-2)After having eight games canceled on the “dry side” the Knights will now attempt to find some action on the “wet side.”Negative weather and field conditions wiped out four games home games with Clark the 4th and 5th, and the same thing happened last weekend with Green River.  At least the squad wedged in two games last Wednesday when a “last minute” doubleheader was arranged at Yakima Valley (WVC lost both 5-2 and 15-2). 

Saturday & Sunday, Bellevue (7-3) and Tacoma (3-4) away.* Saturday WVC will go to Bellevue and play Tacoma and Bellevue, then Sunday head for Pierce County and face the same two again.* Tacoma.  A year ago the Titans visited Paul Thomas Sr. Baseball Stadium and took both ends of a double header from the home team.  Overall Tacoma leads the series 3-1.* Bellevue.  Wenatchee Valley first played Bellevue back in 1970.  The most recent game was in 2008.  The Bulldogs lead the series 11-3.
