The junior high softball team has turned around their season after a slow start. The team is now currently ranked 10 out of 21 schools in their division and are currently named one of the top 5 rising teams in the state.
Their last game was against the number 1 ranked Dobson Academy! The Heroes put on the best display of defense all year, holding them to a 3-0 lead for the first 3 innings. The game before that was a hard fought victory, in the rain, 17-13 against Legacy East Mesa. Coach Klepfer believes the team will be ready for the playoffs and said, ” We will surprise some teams if they are not prepared for us. Once your in the playoffs anything can happen.”
The girls are scheduled to play Red Rocks this Tuesday 4:30 at Copper Sky, so come out to support the team.
