PORTLAND – The Wenatchee Valley College softball team is one win away from winning a Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges championship.
The second-seeded Knights beat top-seeded Mount Hood 6-1 on Sunday at the Owens Sports Complex in Delta Park to advance to Monday’s championship game.
The Knights will face Bellevue or Douglas on Monday. WVC’s opponent will need to beat the Knights twice to win the title; as champions of the winner’s bracket, WVC will need just one win to clinch the championship.
The Knights have won the NWAACC’s East Division for the past eight seasons, but are still seeking the first NWAACC championship in the program’s history.
Rae Dorcas hit a home run to key a four-run fifth inning for the Knights.
Hailey Bator threw a complete-game three-hitter, striking out 13, and added two doubles.
