  • GRANTS PASS — Crater senior Kenzie Rohde was a one-person wrecking crew Saturday to help the Comets climb back into the thick of things in the Southern Oregon Hybrid softball race.
    Rohde belted a pair of home runs as Crater cruised past Grants Pass 7-2 in the opening game of the doubleheader, then had two hits and one RBI in the nightcap as the Comets secured a 10-0 win in five innings at Grants Pass High.
    "It was a breakout day for her," said Crater head coach Chris Arnold. "She really was seeing the ball well and he had a great command of the zone today."
    Rohde smacked her first homer of the season in a five-run third inning in Game 1 — a three-run shot over the fence — then followed that up with a solo homer in the seventh.
    Malorie Mitchell added two hits and one RBI for the Comets (5-8, 3-4 SOH) in the opener, while Aleah Stevens and Sadie Zozaya had two hits apiece for the Cavers (6-8, 2-4).
    In the nightcap, Crater senior Renee Murphy struck out four in four innings and combined with Alex Sheperd on a two-hitter.
    Rachel Ray added two hits and two RBIs for the Comets.

    ROSEBURG 4-9, SOUTH MEDFORD 2-7 — Allyssa Hunt's RBI double in the ninth inning gave Roseburg the lead for good in Game 1 and Mariessa Robles' two-run homer in the eighth did the same in Game 2 as the Indians pulled out two SOH thrillers at South Medford High.
