Lady Bearcats crush Spartans in opener

Copper Basin News

The Ray Bearcats’ softball team started its season with a lopsided victory over Gilbert Classical Academy, 31 – 1. It was a great start to the season for a team expected to contend for a state championship.

The ‘Cats scored 18 runs in the first inning against the inferior Spartans and never looked back. The only question would be if the Bearcats could preserve the shutout, but the Spartans were able to score a run in the third-inning.

The victory was a promising start for a Bearcats’ team that is state title contender. They’ll continue to build on the good start with four games this week.

After a game at Show Low on March 11, the ‘Cats will play a double-header at San Carlos on March 14 followed by a game at Salt River on March 15. The first game of the double-header begins at 4 p.m. The game versus Salt River begins at 1 p.m.
