Campbell's homer sparks Lakeland to sweep of Moscow
RATHDRUM - Senior Chelsea Campbell hit a walk-off home run in the first game, and the Lakeland Hawks went on to sweep the Moscow Bears 1-0 and 7-0 in 4A Inland Empire League play Saturday.
Campbell, who hits third in the Hawks' lineup, led off the bottom of the seventh inning with a shot over the left field fence.
"She's been hitting very well for us, so it was nice to see all her hard work pay off," Lakeland coach Colleen Bevacqua said.
Jamie Klopatek allowed just a fourth-inning single for Lakeland (9-5, 4-0 4A IEL). She struck out 10 and walked two.
In the second game, sophomore Ashley Metcalf pitched her first varsity shutout, striking out seven and scattering six hits. She also hit a two-run single in the fourth inning. Cortney Schelin's two-run single highlighted a five-run fifth.
Moscow dropped to 1-9, 0-2.
