The Thomas Jefferson fastpitch team lost its first game of the season Wednesday to the Curtis Vikings. The Vikings downed the Raiders 5-3 in a “freezing, windy, rainy game on Curtis’ home field,” said coach Tara Bacher.

Curtis scored the first five runs of the game. The Vikings scored three in the bottom of the third and one each in the fourth and fifth off Jefferson starter Amanda Herrara, who allowed only two earned runs.

Jefferson tallied one run in the top of the sixth and scored twice in the seventh to tighten the final score.

Kristy Richardson continued her hot hitting with a 2-for-3 performance at the plate. Senior catcher Tawnya Guthrie had a triple and two RBIs.

The Raiders had seven hits on the day, compared to the six by Curtis. The loss drops Jefferson to 5-1 in South Puget Sound League South Division action.
