The Longhorns keep marching along.
The Basalt High School softball team posted a 3-1 record during a busy stretch in their schedule last week, improving to 12-4 overall. The Longhorns are ranked No. 10 in the latest CHSAAnow.com Class 3A softball poll.
With only a pair of league games remaining, the Longhorns likely will host the District Championships in Class 3A softball this season.
The Longhorns swept a league doubleheader against Montrose last weekend, 19-8 and 8-5.
“We had 23 hits in the first game,” Basalt head coach Colin Young said, adding that Maddie Nieslanik and Brittany Driscoll hit back-to-back home runs in the game.
“Everybody had multiple hits,”: Young said.
Cassidy Young was 3-for-5; Gavin LaCroix was 3-for-5; Nieslanik was 4-for-5; Bailey Strobel was 2-for-4; Keelie Roberts was 2-for-4.
Morgan Young and Driscoll combined in the circle, striking out eight.
In the second game, the Longhorns won a defensive battle.
“It was Britin Strobel’s best game at catcher. She kept their baserunning to a standstill,” Young said.
“We won it again in the sixth inning, with three runs,” the BAsalt head coach said.
Strobel had two hits as did LaCroix and Cassidy Young.
Driscoll pitched a complete game with six strikeouts and no walks.
Earlier last week, the Longhorns shut out Grand Valley 19-0 behind a no-hitter from Morgan Young.
The Longhorns also lost a 15-4 decision to Class 4A power Montrose.
The Longhorns will close the regular season with games against Aspen and Grand Valley. They were scheduled to play at Grand Valley in a makeup of a rain-out game.
On Thursday, the Longhorns will play Rifle in a nonleague game.
