Copper Basin News

After winning their final three games of the regular season, the Lady Lobos earned a berth in Division IV State Championship tournament. The 23rd-seeded Lobos recorded the biggest upset of the opening round by defeating 10th-seeded Paradise Honors, 9 – 2.

Before winning four of their last five games in the regular season, it appeared improbable that the Lady Lobos would be playing in the postseason. They have now won five of six and appear to be one of the hottest teams in the tournament. They’re peaking at the right time.

Hayden will take on 7th-seeded Desert Christian in the second round at 6:00 p.m. on May 9, 2014, at the Rose Mofford Softball Complex in Phoenix. The game will take place on Field #5.

With a win over Desert Christian, the Lady Lobos would play the winner between 18th-seeded St. Gregory and 2nd-seeded San Manuel, the defending champions, on May 10. That game is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. at the Rose Mofford Softball Complex on Field #6.
