At Soda Springs, Sugar-Salem pitchers Curtis Drake, Hayden Crapo and Kyzon Garner combined to hold Soda Springs to two hits and Kyle Ostermiller knocked in four runs on Tuesday as the Digger baseball team defeated Soda Springs 17-3.

At Sugar City, the Shelley softball team put up five runs in the first, but it wasn’t enough as Sugar-Salem took advantage of walks and errors to pull away, 16-5 in five innings. Kennedy Chambers knocked in four runs and Shayla Dopp finished 2 for 3 with a pair of RBIs for Sugar-Salem.

At Blackfoot, the Tigers opened the season with an 11-5 victory over Blackfoot as Andrew Gregersen finished 4 for 4 and knocked in six runs and Cannon Thompson, who started the game and tossed three scoreless innings, added three RBIs. Nate Rose, who finished 2 for 4, also knocked in four runs.

At Blackfoot, the Bronco softball team scored four runs in the first two innings and made them stand up for a 4-2 win over Rigby. Rigby starter Taylor Sheppard pitched a complete game and did not allow a run after the second, but Blackfoot held Rigby to just three hits.
