The Lady Bearcats ended the defending state champion San Manuel Miners’ 19-game winning streak last week. Ray defeated the Lady Miners, 5 – 1. The Lady Bearcats finished the regular season on a seven-game winning streak of their own.

With the strong finish to the regular season, the Bearcats secured the 4th-seed and a first-round bye in the State Championship tournament.

Ashley Meza had three hits, including two doubles, and Player of the Game Sarah Duncklee tripled to lead the Lady ‘Cats against San Manuel. Jessica Meza drove in two runs. Stormee Galka had four stolen bases in the game.

Galka was the winning pitcher, allowing one run on three hits and striking out an astounding 17 Miners’ hitters.

The Lady ‘Cats enter the tournament riding a seven-game winning streak, including a win over the defending champs, and appear to be peaking at just the right time. They’ll take on 13th-seeded Phoenix Country Day in the second-round of the playoffs on Friday, May 9, 2014, at the Rose Mofford Softball Complex. The game is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. on Field #4.

With a win, the Lady ‘Cats will take on the winner of 12th-seeded Bisbee vs. 5th-seeded Superior on May 10 at 9:30 a.m.
