Over the week of Spring Break, the Blue Dragon softball team played a series of games against Garden City, Highland, and Kansas City.

The Dragons beat both Garden City and Kansas City in double headers and lost to Highland in a doubleheader.

After a scoreless first inning from both teams, the Dragons scored one run in the second inning.

Then Hutch had back-to-back innings where they scored three runs, the third and fourth innings; plus a scoreless fifth inning.

The score was 7-1 after five innings.
