  • In recent action, the Pratt High JV softball team has gone 3-1. Last week, Lady Green split with Kingman and took a pair from Little River.
    Against Kingman, PHS dropped the opener 15-0. “We couldn't seem to get our bats going and that unfortunately spilled over into our defense,” lamented PHS assistant coach Crystal Kohman-Smith.
    The Frogs rebounded in the nightcap, completely turning the tables on Kingman with a 16-0 win. “The girls came alive on offense made a couple key plays on defense and never let up,” said Kohman-Smith. “I was happy with how we came back in the second game and got the job done, offensively and defensively. Luz (Acosta) did a good job pitching and earned her first shut out.”
    Against Little River, the Lady Greenbacks JV had little trouble— pounding the Indians 19-4 and 12-0 in a pair of abbreviated contests.
    Acosta was again the winning pitcher in game one against Little River. Acosta whiffed three Little River hitters. Saige Twiner and Liz Amaro each cracked doubles to pace the Frog offense. Pratt’s 11-run 1st inning took the mystery out of the game early on.
    PHS put up an 11-spot again in the first inning of the nightcap, staking hurler Paige Huber to a huge lead. Huber breezed through the Indians line-up, fanning a half-dozen.
    Brooke Theis went 3-3 with two doubles, and Liz Amaro and Lauren Voss each chipped in a double in the offensive explosion.
    “We came out defensively and gave up a few runs on errors in the first game - but we got settled in and worked hard offensively and defensively through the rest of the night,” Coach Kohman-Smith said. “We had great pitching tonight and the girls really thrived on their good communication and patience at the plate.”
