“… We played all spring to get to this moment. We have struggled as of late but it is really good to get this one behind us. Ciana pretty much took care of us in this one. Now to get things ready for the district championship.”
Bulldog Pitcher Ciana Bowen
“… We started out a little slow. All of the girls did a really good job adjusting to the pitching. The defense had my back this game, and Natalie did a great job at spotting pitches. We were fired up and ready to win. Now we are ready to win a district championship!”
