The Snow College softball team had the opportunity to travel to Las Vegas, Nevada to play in a season opening tournament. The weekend started on Friday with the Badgers playing Eastern Arizona College for the first game, but only two innings could be played due to a downpour of rain, which flooded the field for the entire day and canceled the Friday games.
Saturday the team was able to play a couple of games, the first being against Yavapai College. Snow’s only score was Shaylee Larsen’s home run, which pulled the Badgers close in the 7th inning, but it wasn’t enough as the Badgers ended up being edged by Yavapai 2-1.
The second game of the day was against Eastern Arizona College; the first few innings were close as the Badgers were only down 2-1. Center fielder Kenzie Rasmussen hit a home run which was Snow’s only run. In the 5th inning, Eastern Arizona scored big with nine runs, ending the game due to the 10 run mercy rule.
The team continues play as they go on the road to play Salt Lake Community College on Feb. 27.
