The College Softball team played a four-game set against the College of Southern Nevada (CSN). The hard fought games ended with the Badgers losing the series 4-0. CSN won Friday’s doubleheader, 5-1 and 6-4, and completed the sweep on Saturday, 8-6 and 6-4, with the last game of the series going nine innings.

In the first game, the Badgers started out a bit sluggish and fell behind early as CSN scored the first run in all four games. Snow was only able to manage five hits in the first game and came up short 5-1. The team was led by BritLee Anderson with a couple singles. Karlee Manzione also had a double, and Brooke Davis had a solo home run for the Badgers.

Game two didn’t fair too well for Snow either, as they lost with a final score of 6-4. Anderson led the way as she went three for four with a double. Riley Cleverly had a good game as she drove in two runs in the second inning.

Game three brought more of the same for the Badgers as they fell behind early and had to play catch up. Again, Anderson and Manzione had a pair of hits, and Kenzie Rasmussen had a great game hitting a double and home run while driving in four runs.

The fourth game was a better game for the Badgers. The game went into extra innings to decide the winner. The Badgers had many opportunities to win the game but couldn’t find a timely hit. Snow had runners in scoring position in the 6th, 7th, and 8th innings but failed to drive them in.

Outfielder Kayla Larson had this to say, “As hard as it is to lose, it is nice to see improvements and see the team get better each game.”

The Badgers faced off against the College of Southern Idaho (CSI) this past weekend here in Ephraim. The series was another four-game set. The Badgers played very well and took one game out of the four from CSI. The final scores were 4-12, 3-5, 8-0, and 0-10.
