The Snow College Lady Badgers softball team took one game out of four against the 13th ranked College of Southern Idaho Golden Eagles (CSI), and again took one game in a four game set at Western Nevada College Wildcats (WNC).

In the win against CSI, freshman pitcher Riley Cox got Saturday’s shutout for Snow, spreading five singles and striking out two. A pair of double plays turned by the Badger infield helped her in the win.

Shortstop Cassidy Anderson went 3-for-4 at the plate and scored twice in the win. Karlee Manzione was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and drove in four runs. Freshman Emily Adams had a pinch-hit triple that drove in two runs. Anderson and Manzione each finished the series with five hits for the Badgers.

In the win against WNC, the Badgers scored five times in the top of the fifth inning to take the series opener. Catcher Brooke Davis singled in two runs in the Badgers’ big inning. She also drove in the first run of the game in the second inning with a sacrifice fly.

BritLee Anderson, Shaylee Larsen and Emily Street also had RBI’s in the Badgers’ five-run fifth. Each one of them had two hits in the game to help the Badgers with the win.

Freshman pitcher Riley Cox got the win for the Badgers, only allowing four singles and walking only one as she pitched the complete game. WNC’s only run off Cox came on a groundout in the second inning.

The Badgers face off against the 17th ranked team the Salt Lake Community College Bruins this weekend April 3 and 4. Come out and support the team as they play at home in Ephraim.
