The Snow College Softball team is in the heart of conference play, looking to turn the season around after a series of tough losses to conference rivals College of Southern Idaho and Salt Lake Community College.
The Badgers are sitting at an 8-13-1 record overall on the year with a 2-4 record in conference play. When asked her feelings on the team this year, AnnMarie Allred said, “The team this year has obvious talent but more importantly we have heart and the will to fight.”
Offensively, the Badgers are led by Alyssa Arselenian, who currently has a batting average of .470, with 8 home runs, 31 total hits, and 29 RBI, all of which are leading the team. She is joined by Sarah Sandberg, batting .350 with 21 hits and 11 RBI, McCall Stoddard, batting .346 with 27 hits and 10 RBI, and Mackenzie Simons, batting .338 with 23 hits and 13 RBI. Defensively, Carley Guymon leads the pitchers with a 5-6 record and a 4.71 ERA. She is joined by Sydney Barney, who has a 2-6 record with a 5.61 ERA.
When asked about the season thus far, Alyssa Arslanian said, “The highlight of the season so far is that we have come together as a team and that we are always pushing to win. No team should ever count us out of a game because we all have such a love for the game that we will fight till the end. We are getting better and better each day and when it gets to the conference tournament the other teams should be worried. Right now, w
e may be the underdogs, but I have a feeling that we will come through when it matters. I love my team and we will prove people wrong.”
The Badgers will compete next on the 31st of March and the 1st of April in Price against in-state rival USU Eastern.
