GLENNS FERRY — Reigning 2A state champion Malad out-played the Pirates at the four-game Glenns Ferry Tournament last weekend, April 11-12, but the Pirates — 1A runners-up last year — handled the rest of the competition well enough to win.
North Fremont imploded during the bottom of the third inning last Friday, as PHS ran off 15 runs to stake out a 23-0 victory.
Later that day, Soda Springs lasted five innings but ultimately fell 11-4 as pitcher Leah Holthaus helped her own cause with a single, a double and a triple backed by three hits from Hailey Danly, including another triple.
On Saturday, Malad turned five hits and three Prairie errors into five runs while shutting the Pirates out.
PHS rediscovered its offense during the tournament finale against West Side, as Holthaus, Danly, Sky Wilson and Kylie Tidwell delivered hits that, combined with West Side’s struggles, produced nine runs.
Up next, Prairie (11-2) played reigning 1A champion Genesee after this week’s print deadline. The Pirates have an April 22 home game against Highland slated for a 4:30 p.m. start.
