The Green River Lady Wolves Softball team played a home game against the Rock Springs Lady Tigers last Thursday. The Lady Wolves were outscored by the Lady Tigers when Rock Springs scored eight runs in the sixth inning. Rock Springs won the game with a a final score of 16-9.
Head Coach Blair Aimone feels the girls battled until the end. She believes there were a lot of things that they should have done a little bit better to win the game. She says every time they step out on the field, it's a winnable game. The girls just have to perform and unfortunately the girls had some pretty big mistakes at the wrong time and they needed to be tougher defensively. She feels the game was definitely closer than the score portrayed.
The second game was another unfortunate loss for the Lady Wolves as they lost the game to Rock Springs, with a final score of 5-17.
The Cheyenne tournament that was suppose to take place over the weekend was canceled.
"It's been a rough year and we've had some teammates go through some very unexpected events, but the way these girls have handled themselves and have shown up to play and never quit, I am just really proud of them for that," added Coach Aimone.
On Friday, Green River will host two games against Worland, and on Saturday, Green River will play two games against Cody. Before the varsity game on Saturday, two senior players will be honored: Lani Blaylock and Shelby Carson.
"These games this weekend are huge for us and determining whether or not we make it to State," explained Coach Aimone. "We have done a good job winning the games that matter so far. We need to take another win from Worland and it would be nice to get one from Cody. Every game counts and if the girls play ball to their potential, we should be able to do that."
Come and support the Lady Wolves during their last games of the season. The State Championships will take place in Gillette on May 18-20.
