The Crook County High School softball team suffered another heartbreaking loss on Tuesday, May 10, as they fell 5-4 to The Dalles.

The loss was Crook County's seventh in a row, dropping the team to fifth place in the six team Intermountain Conference and virtually eliminating them from playoff contention.

Jaycee Villastrigo pitched five innings for the Cowgirls, giving up seven hits and five runs, while Tylee Cossitt pitched the sixth inning, allowing one hit and no runs.

"Jaycee and Tylee kept The Dalles offense off balance throughout the game," Crook County head coach Jeremy Puckett said. "If we would have made a couple of routine plays, the outcome of the game would have been much different. Katelynn Weaver had several outstanding defensive plays."
