  • Pine Creek gets 2nd shot at Sabercats

    Until Saturday's softball regionals, Pine Creek hadn't beaten a nonconference team this season. That's not a concern from Pine Creek coach Dave Warhoe, nor should it be, as four of those seven nonconference opponents qualified for the state tournament. Five of the losses came on a tournament weekend when the Eagles witnessed a car wreck that...

  • The Gazette's peak performer on the week: Laci Lashley, Falcon softball

  • Discovery Canyon outlasts Berthoud to make another trip to state softball

    At no point in Saturday's Region 7 softball championship game did Discovery Canyon's players look worried. Even when they blew a one-run lead in the top of the seventh on a home run by Berthoud's Jessica Boruff, the Thunder didn't seem too shaken up. They showed why, outlasting the Spartans 3-2 in 11 innings to lock up their fourth...

  • Pine Creek softball shuts out Rampart in softball to tie up division

    Pine Creek's softball team wanted revenge. It wasn't just that the Eagles lost to rival Rampart earlier this season, it was that they felt they should have won that game. Instead, they fell by a run and that left a bad taste with the Eagles. It also gave them the fuel they needed to defeat the Rams 3-0 on Tuesday in - as Eagles coach David...

The senior was able to check off leading her team to a win over rival Discovery Canyon for the first time last week when she outdueled close friend McKenzie Surface in a 3-2 victory.
