The Grantsville softball team won four out of six games in southern Utah last weekend with its four wins coming by a combined 34 runs.
Its two losses to Fremont and Box Elder came by a combined four runs. Junior Sydney Barney pitched the Cowboys to victory Thursday in Cedar City against the Lady Reds, and the offense scored the first seven of its 50 total runs scored for the weekend. Grantsville opened the game with two runs in the first inning and then another three runs in the third inning before Cedar finally scratched across a run.
With Grantsville already leading 6-1, Cedar scored two more runs before the Cowboys scored one last run in the seventh to pick up the 7-3 win. Autumn Dzierzon led the team offensively with a double and a home run.
Grantsville kept right on rolling the next day in St. George against Enterprise. It posted a 9-1 win before Fremont handed Grantsville its first loss of the weekend at 6-3. The Cowboys bounced back right away with a 12-0 win over Sky View. Senior Whitney Fields posted the win in the circle for Grantsville.
The Cowboys picked up another double-digit 14-4 win Saturday against Provo. It ended the trip with a 6-5 loss to Box Elder.
Grantsville returns home for a game Tuesday against Spanish Fork, the defending state runner-up. It then plays at Juan Diego on Friday.
The Grantsville softball team is also currently teamed up with the Tooele softball team for a food drive. The two teams have boxes placed at both THS and GHS for members of the community to donate food items for the Tooele County Food Bank. On Saturday, March 22, the two softball teams will bring the donated food items to the food bank.
