Gervais's softball squad ran into several stiff challengers the week of April 11. The Cougars were defeated by Kennedy on April 11 by a score of 7-1, and then defeated by Central Linn 14-5 on April 14.

Against Kennedy, Gervais got its lone run of the game in the first inning thanks to a Trinity Bastidas double. The Cougars actually outhit the Trojans in the game 7-4 but committed four errors and pitcher Sarah Saalfeld walked nine batters.

The Cougars then hosted Central Linn on Thursday and were competitive throughout most of the game, trailing just 2-1 heading into the top of the sixth inning. But an eight-run inning for the Cobras sealed Gervais's fate. The Cougars earned four runs in the seventh and final inning, but it was too little too late.

Gervais sophomore Citlali Munoz had 2 BB, 1 hit, 1 RBI and a run, and freshman Camryn Rutledge had 2 hits and 2 RBIs. Bastidas earned a walk, 2 hits and 2 runs at bat.
