The Lady Dragons softball team traveled to Coffeyville on March 27 to play the Red Ravens.

The Dragons lost the first game of the double header 7-4 and won the second game 1-0.

In the first game, Hutch struggled until the bottom of the seventh inning when they scored three runs, but were unable to catch back up, since the Red Ravens scored seven runs in the game.

As the second game began, neither team was able to score even after Coffeyville had the bases loaded without a single out at the top of the fourth inning.

Dragon pitcher, Brittany Olender, Victoria, British Columbia, was able to strike out three players in a row, helping the score stay 0-0.

Loribeth Reynolds/Collegian - Holly Kelly, Cypress, Texas, pitches during the Cloud County game on March 10. The Dragons won both games of the double header, 4-2 and 12-4.
