LOWELL — Days Creek collected 35 hits against Lowell as it swept a Class 2A/1A Special District 3 softball doubleheader on Wednesday, winning 14-1 and 11-4.

Shandiin Newton pitched a four-hitter with 11 strikeouts and no walks for the Wolves (10-3, 10-3 SD3) in the opener. Fiona Ketchum was 4-for-4 with two doubles, Bailey Stufflebeam and Kaliegh Loidici both went 3-for-4 and Raime Wheeler added two hits.

Newton went 4-for-4 and Ashtyn Slater was 4-for-5 with a double for Days Creek in the second game. Raime Wheeler was 3-for-3, and Megan Kruzic, Stufflebeam and McKenzie Park all had two hits. Ketchum homered.

"We played well today," D.C. coach Katie Staudemaier said. "We played good defense and I thought Shandiin pitched well in both games."

The Wolves will play the winner between Glide and Oakridge at 4 p.m. Friday in a league playoff at Days Creek High School.
