Clark’s bat leads Edmonds CC to historic sweep in softball

April 22, 2014

Faith Clark SoftballLike most freshman, Faith Clark of Ketchikan had to wait her turn when she got to college. She finally got her shot for Edmonds Community College and she didn’t drop the ball.

In fact, she crushed the ball.

Clark belted home runs in back-to-back and finished 4-for-6 in the doubleheader as Edmonds swept Skagit Valley in NWAACC softball play in Washington. It was the first time Edmonds swept a region rival since 2006.

The Tritons can thank the only Alaskan on the roster.

Clark, of Ketchikan High fame, went 3-for-4 with two runs and three RBIs in a 5-4 win in the first game. Those three hits matched her season total in the eight previous games combined.

She doubled in a run in the second inning, launched her first career homer with a solo shot in the fourth and then delivered a walk-off base hit in the bottom of the seventh.

In game two, she crushed a two-run homer in a 7-5 win.

Clark is hitting .269 in 11 games this year. Four of her seven hits have gone for extra bases.
