  • TALENT — Phoenix head softball coach Jason Zanni says he is surprised that hard-hitting senior Amanda Skaff hasn't received more looks from colleges.
    The shortstop gave them four reasons to consider her on Saturday.
    Skaff hit for the cycle in the second game of a doubleheader against Mazama at Hagler-James Field. The Vikings got the best of the Pirates though, winning the opener, 12-2 in five innings, and prevailing, 16-8, in Game 2.
    Skaff finished 4-for-4 with six RBIs in her big game. She hit a double in the first inning, a sacrifice fly in the third, an inside-the-park home run in the fifth, a triple in the sixth and a single in the seventh.
    She sent her four-bagger down the right-field line and used her speed to come home.
    Bailee Tally was 3-for-5 with three RBIs in Game 2 for the Pirates (2-8, 1-2 Sky), who finished with 12 hits.
    Kaylee Pinner went 4-for-5 for Mazama (5-5, 2-1).
    In the first contest, Tally finished 2-for-3 with an RBI double and Ember Wolfe scored on a passed ball for Phoenix.
    Lynzee Wortman was 4-for-4 with three runs scored for the Vikings, who recorded 28 hits with just two errors on the day.
    "They played so hard," Zanni said of his team's effort. "They could have easily rolled over and died after the first one, but they never quit."

    MAZAMA 13-3, PHOENIX 7-13 — At Talent, Mazama stormed back from a 5-0 deficit to claim the opener, but Carlos Navarro's offense plus a solid outing by pitcher Aaron Hutchinson helped Phoenix salvage a split in a Skyline doubleheader at Hagler-James Field.
