Nevares leads Wildfires with arm, bat
Corinne Nevares did it all Friday in Foresthill.
The senior pitched a three-hitter for the Wildfires’ softball team, then stepped to the plate and knocked in the game-winning run in the bottom of the sixth inning as Foresthill edged Forest Lake Christian 2-1.
Sadie Stroup joined Nevares in going 2-for-3 with a double. Nevares added both RBIs for the Wildfires, who improved to 2-0-1 in the Centra Valley Christian League. In the pitcher’s circle Nevares struck out seven, walked none and faced just two batters over the minimum.
The Falcons fell to 1-1 in CVCL play.

Sophomore Hannah George was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate. Whitney Smith was 2-for-3 and Caitlin Carson added a double for Del Oro (13-2).
