Varsity Softball

RJ Parra literally started and finished the game in a 16-4 win over the Estrella Foothills Wolves. Parra pitched the complete game, allowing just two earned runs on five hits, while striking out seven. That was in the field. Her contribution at the plate concluded with a game ending grand slam, ending a perfect three for three day, with a total of five RBIs.

Parra said, “I just kinda loosened up and had fun out there today.”

The Badgers took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first when Makayla Reyes hit a two run homer, scoring Dana Seavey ahead of her who had singled.

The lead went to 4-0 in the second when Ava Hlavacek walked, RJ Parra singled, and Ruby Tessman’s ground out to second scored Hlavacek. Elle Long’s sacrifice fly later in the inning scored Parra.

Estrella Foothills cut the lead in half in the top of the third, when Mia Espinoza singled and scored on a triple by Alyssa Charlton. Jess Ramirez doubled in Charlton, and it was 4-2.

Prescott took control of the game with six runs in the bottom of the third. Things started off with a walk to Leigha Walker. After a pair of steals, Walker scored on a single by Sophia Fanchin. Three hits in a row by Hlavacek, Parra, and Tessman would follow. A two RBI single by Dana Seavey, and yet another single by Reyes boosted the lead to 10-2.

Olivia Fanchin blasted a solo shot over the center field fence to make it 11-2 the fourth.

The Wolves picked up a couple of runs in the top of the fifth, thanks to three Badger errors, but Parra was able to retire the side with limited damage with an 11-4 lead.

In what turned out to be the final inning, saw a one out double by Makayla Reyes. Leigha Walker was hit by a pitch, followed by back to back walks to Kennedy Carr and Sophia Fanchin, that also included a wild pitch that scored  Reyes. RJ Parra came up with the bases loaded and leashed the final blow.

Prescott remains perfect on the season at (10-0). Coach Randall Bryan said, “The girls continue to play hard and are seeing the ball well at the plate. RJ had a great game for us. She works really hard out there and it is great to see how she finished. We had quite a challenge up at Coconino on Saturday, so it was nice to get this one as we get back into region.”

Estrella Foothills falls to (5-4). The Badgers will play their first of eight Grand Canyon Region games, this afternoon against Flagstaff at 4 pm. Coach Bryan said, “We have some tough teams coming up, and it starts with Flagstaff. Then we have our rival Bradshaw Mountain and they are winning too. So we will need to play well.”
