MADRAS — Jamie Moe’s one-hit pitching was backed by offensive support throughout the Madras lineup Monday as the White Buffaloes rolled to a 10-0 nonconference softball victory over visiting La Pine.
Moe struck out seven batters and walked just one for the complete-game win. She also drove in the game-ending run with a sacrifice fly that sent home Kasheena Stevens for a 10-run Madras lead in the bottom of the fifth inning. La Pine fell to 0-4.
Among the hitting leaders for the White Buffaloes were Caitlin Hulsey, who was three for three with an RBI, and Keely Brown, who booked an RBI double and a run-scoring triple in three turns at bat. Sarah Brown and Inez Jones each had a double, a single and an RBI for Madras (3-1).

Madras 11, La Pine 0: LA PINE — Devin Ceciliani was three for four with two RBIs to lead the visiting White Buffaloes, who made the Hawks pay for a sloppy defensive performance in a five-inning nonconference contest. Madras (2-1) scored six runs in the second inning with the help of five La Pine errors, just half of the Hawks’ total for fielding miscues in the game. Ethan Short had a double and a single for the winners to back the shutout pitching of Robert Fine, who allowed the Hawks (0-4) just four hits — all singles.
Sample takes second: CROOKED RIVER RANCH — At a six-team tournament hosted by Trinity Lutheran, it was a Saint who just missed topping the 14-player field. Victoria Sample’s 18-hole score of 90 on the par-71 course earned her a second-place finish behind McKenzie’s Sydney King, who finished with an 11-over 82. Holly Chapman and Codie Lagao, both of Sisters, took third and fourth, respectively, while Madras’ Lauren Simmons rounded out the top five.
