The Ray Bearcats competed in the Salt River Tournament last weekend with mixed results. They played four games and went 2 – 2. They defeated St. John’s and Chandler Prep while losing to Northland Prep and Scottsdale Prep.

In their final game of the tournament, the ‘Cats came from behind to notch the victory. They trailed the Titans heading into the third inning, 4 – 1. The ‘Cats scored 2 runs in the third and 2 more in the fourth to grab a 5 – 4 lead. The Titans tied the game in the fourth inning, 5 – 5, before the Bearcats scored 3 runs in the top of the sixth inning to put the game away.

The games played in the tournament do not count in a team’s power point rankings. With tournament play now over, the ‘Cats can turn their focus and attention to their upcoming schedule.

After a game at Miami and another at home versus Pima, the Bearcats will take on 2013 State Runner-Up San Manuel on April 4. The Bearcats and the Miners are two of the top teams in Division IV.

The game versus the Miners is scheduled for 4:00 p.m.
