Snow Softball stepped up to the plate on Friday and Saturday against Colorado Northwestern Community College, sweeping out the competition and claiming the victory.

The Badgers took the field with CNCC for four games this weekend, two on Friday and two on Saturday. “It was a great weekend,” said Tiffany Williams. “We played well and had some great games.” Snow claimed the victory in all four games, with scores of 12-5 and 6-3 on Friday and 5-4 and 7-1 on Saturday.

The girls on the team worked strongly as a team to achieve the victory. While pitchers Kimbri Herring, Carley Guymon, and Riley Cox were strong, they were also backed up very well with defense. “We worked well as a team, because we can’t win this alone. We help each other out as much as we can,” said Williams.

These games put the team stats at 17-9, with a 6 win streak. They are looking to be strong for the upcoming conference.

As well as the success as a team, some of the players have received individual awards. Alyssa Arsalanian has been named the national player of the week, Kimbri Herring is the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) player of the week, and Carley Guymon is the SWAC pitcher of the week.

This upcoming weekend, softball is headed to Salt Lake to play with Salt Lake Community College. The two weekends after that will be home games against Southern Nevada (April 15-16) and Southern Idaho (April 22-23).

“You should all come support us,” said Williams. “We love having people come out and have a good time watching what we love to do.”
