Emerald Ridge sophomore Tenli Petty smashed two home runs to power Emerald Ridge to a 7-0 victory over Tahoma in the SPSL 4A fastpitch championship game Friday at the Service Club Ballfields in Kent.

With the win, Emerald Ridge claimed its first SPSL 4A title.

The Jaguars will be the No. 1 seed at next week’s West Central District III tournament, while Tahoma will be the No. 2 seed.

Emerald Ridge beat Kentridge, and Tahoma defeated Todd Beamer earlier in the day to set up the title game.

When Petty stepped up to the plate in the first inning, she swung at the first pitch offered by the Bears’ Maddie Scott and quickly deposit the ball over the left-field fence.

The Jaguars’ power display didn’t stop there.

On the next pitch, Meagan Hendrix (3-for-4, double, 2 RBI) hit a rocket to right-center that just carried over the fence for a 2-0 lead.
