HHS softball goes 1-3 in weekend tournament
An Aug. 30-31 tournament in Sheridan gave the Holyoke High School softball team an opportunity to see several different competitors — and their different playing styles — in a short period of time. In all, the Dragons won one game and lost three.
Friday started off with an 11-3 loss to Conifer. In their second game of the day, the Dragons shut out Kennedy 14-0. On Saturday, Cedaredge pulled off a 7-6 win in the final inning. In another close game, Montrose beat Holyoke 13-9.
Three of the four teams HHS played are 4A, and coach Sherman Kage pointed out that facing such tough competition is a valuable experience for the athletes. From the coach’s perspective, the tournament also provided insight on where his focus should be in practice.
This week, the Dragons will face both Yuma and Limon in their first league competition of the season. All of the games played so far have been against rather unfamiliar teams, but the Dragons are prepared and excited to play a rival team, Kage said.
