PORT ANGELES — Andrea Clapshaw and Tessa Ehrhorn couldn’t resist.

It rained so hard at ironically named Dry Creek Elementary School on Monday that mud puddles formed between the base paths.

So after Port Angeles’ Olympic League Tournament game with Olympic was called due to the weather, Roughrider teammates Clapshaw and Ehrhorn went through the puddles head first.

With mud dripping from Clapshaw’s cheeks and dirt caked underneath Ehrhorn’s nose — not a single spot of white left on their uniforms — the Rider girls smiled.

Because even though the game didn’t count, they still advanced to the district tournament on Friday.

“At least we’re on the good end of it,” said Port Angeles coach Bill Tiderman, whose team will have the Olympic League’s No. 2 seed at the 4A district tournament in Tacoma this weekend.
