Oregon Reign wins ASA state title
Coached by former Duck Missy Doerr, the Reign go 7-1 in the tournament
The Oregon Reign softball team won the 14U ASA state championship this past weekend at Wallace Marine Park Softball Complex in Salem.
Oregon Reign, coached by former University of Oregon standout Missy Doerr, defeated the Portland-based Northwest Bullets in the championship game 8-0 in five innings.
Oregon Reign finished the weekend with a 7-1 record and secured a berth in the regional tournament, which begins Friday at Sunset Hills Memorial Park in Portland.
From there, Oregon Reign will head to Boise, Idaho, for the Western National Championship Finals, held July 27 through Aug. 2.
Doerr, formerly Missy Coe, played three years for the Ducks and twice earned all-Pac-12 honors.
In 1999, she set the then-school single-season record in doubles (18), runs (49) and total bases (127), hitting a team-best .362 that year.
The first-year Oregon Reign coach said this year’s roster is made up of girls from Grants Pass, Northern California, Salem, Eugene and Veneta.
Doerr said right-handed pitcher Sarah Sheppler, a sophomore-to-be at Churchill High, had a particularly strong performance at the state tournament, pitching all but three or four innings throughout the weekend.
