Eastlake fastpitch’s Charles silences Skyline’s bats

April 22, 2014

There wasn’t much offense to support Skyline’s Caroline Bowman nor Eastlake’s Mikel Charles in last week’s Class 4A KingCo Conference fastpitch game.

Charles, though, got enough of it to outduel Bowman, and the Wolves knocked off the Spartans 2-0 April 15 at Skyline High School.

Charles was rarely threatened in leading the Wolves to their fourth KingCo win in five outings. The junior allowed one walk and three hits, all singles, while striking out six in a complete-game effort. She said her entire arsenal was working well against Skyline.
