The Uintah Ute girls Softball team headed to the Cottonwood Complex ranked third in the RPI and started bracket play taking on Springville Tuesday morning. The Utes warmed up early with a Savannah Lewis double then an Aspen Wall home run in the first inning. Ari Siddoway hit a solo shot in the second then Randee Pace hit a two run homer in the third. Savannah Lewis almost made it four but the ball bounced out of the fielders glove at the fence for a ground rule double. She still scored, as the Utes beat the Red Devils 7-3.

They immediately took on the Lehi Pioneers that had just beat the second ranked Bonneville Lakers 1-0 with a run in the seventh inning. Lehi scored early and the Utes couldn’t get the bats going until the sixth inning with Ari Siddoway crushing a three run home run, but the Utes went quietly in the seventh to lose 7-3.

Wednesday, the Utes faced Springville once again. A big Red Devil first inning lead to a 9-3 Ute loss and the end of their state run. Congratulations to a great year for the Utes!
