Softball: Ashby girls 13-2, head to playoffs
The Ashby softball team wrapped up a strong regular season with a 13-2 record after taking care of Eagle Valley 10-2 last Friday.
Paige Nelson allowed just three hits on her way to a win from the circle. She walked eight and struck out three.
The Ashby bats came alive in the final two innings as the Arrows scored nine runs to blow things open. Jeannette Evavold went 3-for-4 with a triple, two runs and three RBIs. Madison VanSanten added three hits, two runs and two RBIs, while also stealing three bases.
"It was great to end the season with a win and end the season with a 13-2 record," head coach Kandace Norby said. "I'm proud of the Lady Arrows because they always play seven innings of hard ball and battle until the end."
