Eagle River clinches spot in state softball tournament
Eagle River advanced to the state high school softball tournament with a 2-1 win over defending state champion South on Thursday at the Cook Inlet Conference Softball Tournament at the Albrecht Fields in Anchorage.
Alina Cook pitched a complete game for the Wolves, who face East at 5:30 p.m. Friday in the tournament semifinals at Albrecht.
The win kept Eagle River undefeated in the tournament; the Wolves knocked off Chugiak 4-2 in Wednesday’s first-round match-up after the tournament start was delayed a day by rain.
Also Thursday at Albrecht, Chugiak was eliminated from the postseason with a 5-2 loss to Dimond. After dropping the opener Wednesday, the Mustangs stayed alive with an 8-2 win Wednesday night over Service to set up Thursday’s loser-out clash with the Lynx.
