Softball struggles against tough class B, C teams

The Chase County softball team had some tough games last week against Cozad—currently sitting third in Class C—and McCook, who is sitting in the low-middle of Class B.
The Longhorns played at Cozad on Sept. 24.
The JV team lost 0-18.
“We need to have our pitchers get more reps in to help their consistency,” Head Coach Denise Smith said. “We have three freshmen pitchers working on it this year.”
The varsity team lost to Cozad 1-11.
“We had a great first inning on defense,” Smith said. “Carissa (Hill) pitched five pitches and we were out of the inning.”
But during the second inning, Cozad got the bats rolling.
The lone run scored by Chase County came from Jesusita Ruiz in the fourth inning.
