Copper Basin News

The Ray softball team won both games it played last week, defeating Gilbert Classical Academy (25 – 1) and Hayden (11 – 1). The ‘Cats have won three in-a-row and allowed only one run in each of the wins.

The Lady ‘Cats, who are ranked seventh in the most current AIA rankings, were looking for more consistency and it appears they have found it.

After a couple of one run losses, head coach Rikki Galka wanted to see her team play with more consistency as they playoffs approach. It doesn’t get any more consistent than allowing only one run in three consecutive games.

The Bearcats will play two of their remaining three games against teams ranked ahead of them – San Manuel (1) and Superior (3). These are the types of games that will prepare a team for the level of competition they’ll face in the state playoffs.

The game versus Superior will mark the third time the teams have faced each other this year. The teams split the previous two games. Against top-ranked and State Champion San Manuel, the ‘Cats will look to avenge a 3 – 2 loss earlier this month.

Upcoming schedule: Apr. 25 vs. Superior, Apr. 29 @ San Manuel, and Apr. 30 @ Duncan. All games are scheduled for 4:00 p.m.
