Raptor girls' season ends with close loss to state ranked team

Ridge View’s softball season came to an end July 3 with a 5-4 loss to Alta-Aurelia in regional tournament play. A-A went into the game ranked fifth in the state in class 2A.

“We finished 10-18, but competed and were in every game except a couple,” noted coach Scott Phelps. “The young Raptors lost many games after leading, but couldn't finish games like we wanted.  Hopefully, all the experience and growing pains will help next year.

“The future looks bright as we lose one senior in Beth Pickhinke. We had a lot of young kids gain valuable experience this year.”
