Crook County drops pair of softball games to Ridgeview Ravens
The Crook County High School softball team continues to have a tough time in the brutal Intermountain Conference.
Playing on the road against the No. 1 team in the state, the Cowgirls struggled Friday, dropping a pair of games to the Ridgeview Ravens.
The Ravens blasted the Cowgirls 10-0 in the first game of the doubleheader, then had an even easier time in the nightcap, taking a 14-0 win.
Both games were shortened to five innings due to the 10-run rule.
"We lost both games in five innings, not much to report," was all that a dejected Crook County head coach Jeremy Puckett chose to say following the games.
The losses dropped the Cowgirls to 1-13 in Intermountain Conference play and 8-17 overall, while the Ravens improved to 12-2 and 19-2 overall.
The Cowgirls close out their season today when they host the Redmond Panthers, 3-11, 9-15, in a 4:30 p.m. game.
It is senior night for the Cowgirls, who will recognize their three seniors, Caitlyn Elliott, Kalyn Martinez, and Berkley Puckett before the game.
