The Lady Cards had fallen to fourth place in the East Region standings but pushed ahead with a winning streak after their travels to Pendleton, Oregon to play Blue Mountain Community College for a make-up game. The Cardinals won 6-2 that game with Kennedy Anderson going 3-4 with 3 RBI’s and a home run. Anderson was also named Northwest Athletic Conference player of the week.
Although several of this season’s softball games have been rained out the Cardinals have pushed back to second place. Saturday, April 15, it began to rain a bit but managed to stay clear for the double header played at Memorial field. The Lady Cards swept the Chuckers of Treasure Valley Community College defeating them 8-0 in the first game and they staged a comeback in the 5th inning. The Cards rebounded in the second gmae after some errors both in the infield and outfield. The Lady Cards came back strong finishing the second game with a final score of 11-5.
Games against Spokane that were to be rescheduled this week due to the rainedout fields are said to be rescheduled for next Wednesday, May 3, at Memorial Field, depending on weather conditions. Head Coach Don Don Williams said Spokane Community College is one of their biggest challenges so will be an important game in bringing them up to the leader board if they can bring in the win in the double-header.
Immediately after the second game against Treasure Valley Community College the Lady Cards set up a table and signed autographs for the NIC fans. Many young fans were very happy to get an autographed picture of the team and a picture.
