Softball plays first two games, track and golf yet to compete

After falling 17-2 at Florence in the program's first game Friday, the Three Forks High School Softball team played far better in the second game of the doubleheader.

Head Coach Clay Feliciano said with the first game in program history, jitters were expected, and they talked to the team between games, and the players had a great attitude.

"They completely left that game behind them and battled the defending state Champs all seven innings in game 2. We went into the 7th down 8-5 and ended up with a final of 11-5. They showed a ton of resilience and heart," he said.

Ada Rae Thomas and Fallon Page each had hits in the opening game. Feliciano said they were able to double the number in the second game, with Sierra Schall, Nova Ervin, Page, and Arabella McCauley each getting hits. Ervin had the first extra-base hit in program history.

Page pitched the opener for Three Forks, and Thomas pitched in the second game.

"They both did well. We have some specifics to focus on in practice this week and are ready to get back to work," Feliciano said.


The Three Forks High School Track and Field and Golf teams did not compete last week.

The track and field squad had two meets canceled last week due to weather.

The golf team has also been dealing with difficult weather conditions.

"This Spring season has been an interesting one, to say the least. With only a handful of days spent at the course and only three days sending kids out to play, we are a ways behind practice-wise where we usually are at this point of the season. Because of the weather woes, we have yet to go to a tournament," said Head Coach Aaron Harkins. "However, weather permitting, we will be taking a group of varsity golfers to Eureka next Wednesday and Thursday to play a two-day event at this year's divisional golf course. We will be keeping our expectations in check as none of our kids have been able to hit a putt on real greens yet, but we are excited to get to play some golf."
