Great Falls High and CMR Prepare for Crosstown Softball

Posted: Updated:
On their way to making school history, the Great Falls High took down CMR in what was an epic one-run game. Despite falling to their rivals in the second round, CMR says revenge is not a factor because the game is no different from any other crosstown.
 
"I wouldn't necessarily call it revenge," says CMR Junior pitcher Quinn Hartman. "This game is always big. We always want to get a win. It's going to be a conference win. So that's the way to go."
 
CMR enters the game as the hotter team. The Rustlers started the season winning six straight and they are undefeated in conference. The bats have been the key for their success....which leads to the old saying, "If it's not broken…don't fix it."
 
"We need to hit very well, get our quick bat speed," says CMR Freshman Infielder Savanna Voyles. "And we need to have good defense. Communicate on the field."
 
Great Falls is the defending champs but they enter the contest one game under .500. The numbers suggest that defense has been the issue, as the Bison are giving up nearly 8 runs a game. Head coach Mike Coleman says he will start Marina Laqroque in the circle because of her past success against CMR.
 
"Well I gotta make sure my pitching is on my game first of all, make sure my rise ball is working," says Bison Junior Marina Larocque. "Come in strong at them. Keep it a surprise."
 
For the Bison to win, the bats will need to break free of their "Jekyll-and-Hyde act."
 
"We just have to make sure we come out ready to hit," says Bison Senior Mercedes Bourgeau. "We've been struggling with that this year. If we go out and hit like we can, we'll do great."
 
Both Great Falls High and CMR have been power house programs over the years and the winner will make a statement on who the top dog is…..at least until the second crosstown game.

    ENTIAT, Wash. - A burn out operation is planned for Tuesday morning in an effort to establish a secure line in the bottom of the canyon where the Mills Canyon Fire is burning. Burning material rolling downhill and igniting spot fires on the north side of Swakane Canyon have caused concerns and indicate a vulnerability to a fire escape and repeatedly expose firefighters to very steep terrain and rolling material.
