LEAVENWORTH — It took a little longer than they expected, but the Cascade fastpitch softball team is the champion of District Six.
The District 6 1A tournament was originally set for Saturday in Chelan, but heavy rains washed those games to Tuesday in Leavenworth, where Cascade rolled to a pair of easy wins.
Cascade dumped Omak 14-4 in six innings in the first game, then made quick work of Chelan in the finals, winning 15-0 in five innings.
The Kodiaks scored in nine of the 10 innings in which they batted on the afternoon, and knocked out 25 hits. Clarissa DeLaVergne battered both Cascade opponents, finishing 5-for-6 with three doubles, a home run and nine RBIs on the day. Halee Ross was 5-for-6 with three runs scored.
Okanogan, which lost to Chelan in the semifinals, beat Omak in the loser out game to secure the No. 3 seed to the bi-district tourney.
The top three finishers — along with the top three teams from the NEA — will be back in action in Leavenworth on Saturday for the bi-district tournament.

Brewster had a 5-1 lead, but Riverside rallied to tie it at 5-all, then extended to a 9-5 lead.
The Bears had the bases loaded in the sixth, but could not capitalize as their comeback fell a run short.
