Incoming Phoenix senior pitcher Meranda Zanni went 7-0 with six complete games to help lead her Douglas County Fastpitch softball team to the championship at the 16B NAFA Northwest Nationals, held this past weekend in Newberg.

For her efforts, Zanni was named to the all-tournament team and was the tournament MVP.

Zanni struck out 64 and walked seven to record all seven wins for her travel team at the 20-team tourney. She capped her summer with a 27-4 record.

Her tournament run included a one-hit shutout of the 16A Sudden Impact of Federal Way, Wash., a no-hit shutout of the Hillsboro Thunder and two more wins over Sudden Impact, 5-4 and 9-1, with the former decided in extra innings and the latter coming in the championship final.

She also had a go-ahead solo home run against Oregon City in the sixth inning of a 4-3 win, and finished the tourney with four triples, five doubles and a .750 batting average.
