Thomas Wins Duel; Royal Upsets Camarillo

April 24, 1998

Royal High's Stephanie Thomas and Camarillo's Kathrine Nevard each pitched two-hitters in a Marmonte League softball game Thursday at Camarillo, but Thomas provided the necessary offense to lift Royal to a 2-0 upset and negate Nevard's 10-strikeout performance.

Thomas (4-2) hit a run-scoring triple in the sixth inning, then scored on a wild pitch.

Camarillo (10-2, 7-1 in league play) is ranked second in The Times' regional poll. Royal is 9-9, 3-4.
