– “Yelm Shakes off Early Loss to Earn Third at State Fastpitch Tournament”
“Tornados head coach Lindsay Walton, however, had a very direct message to her squad moments after their disappointing first-round loss at the Class 3A state tournament. One each player took to heart.
“I said, ‘Ladies we don’t quit now. It hurts losing that first one, but this team doesn’t quit,’” Walton said. “I told them they could still get third place and that is amazing.”
“Yelm went out and did just that, shaking off its opening round defeat to win five consecutive games to claim third place at the Regional Athletic Center in Lacey on May 26,” by Grant Clark, Thurston Talk.
