Forks softball pitcher Chloe Gaydeski was a huge part of the Spartans’ amazing run to the 2B state championship game.
Just a freshman, Gaydeski pitched complete games in all three of Forks’ state tournament victories. She was the winner in a 12-1 win over Okanogan in the semifinal on May 27, a 10-5 victory over Warden in the quarterfinals and a 13-5 win over Brewster in the tournament opening round. She pitched 19 innings in those three games, allowing six earned runs.
She also was a force at the plate. She was 3-for-3 with a double versus Okanogan, 2-for-4 with a double and a home run and four RBIs, and she had a double and an RBI in the win over Brewster.
Though Forks lost in the championship game to powerful Adna, Gaydeski contributed a two-run home run and pitched a complete game.
Gaydeski is sure to be a big part of the Spartans team next year that will try to return to the state tournament.
