POST FALLS — The Priest River softball team split an away doubleheader with the Post Falls junior varsity team May 4, winning the first game 9-7 but losing the second, 15-10.

Rachel Akre earned the win for the Spartans in 3.2 innings on the mound with five strikeouts, zero walks, and giving up two runs and two hits. The Spartans had been blanked until the fifth inning when they exploded with nine runs, punctuated by Jesi Huntley’s triple worth three RBIs.
