The Grand County High School Lady Devils softball team split a doubleheader at Richfield last Friday, April 12, losing the first game 6-3, but coming back to defeat the Lady Wildcats in the second game, 11-9.

The Lady Devils managed to get eight hits in the first game, but left several runners stranded on base, according to head coach Stephanie Cluff.

“In the second game, Brianna Ballard hit a home run and Amanda Sheets hit a triple,” Cluff said, adding the relief pitcher Rhiannon Bohannon, a freshman, finished out the game for the Lady Devils.

The Lady Devils are now 3-3 in Region 15 play, which puts them tied for second place with Richfield. On Friday, April 19, the Lady Devils are scheduled to play their final home game of the season, against region rival Emery. The varsity game begins at 3:30 p.m.  

“We have to win this game in order to guarantee a bid at state,” Cluff said.
