At St. George, Utah, the Idaho Falls High School softball team finished its opening weekend 4-1 after splitting two games on Saturday.

“We were quite happy with the results this weekend on dirt,” Tigers coach Traci Wilkinson said, adding the team had yet to see much action outside due to the weather.

The Tigers (4-1) jumped out early in Saturday’s first game, scoring 13 runs in the second inning, but eventually had to hold off Desert Hills, 16-11. Macie Cordon belted a 3-run homer and Madi Burton finished 3 for 5.

North Sanpete handed Idaho Falls its first loss of the season in the later game, defeating the Tigers 10-3.

Idaho Falls is scheduled to play Thunder Ridge at Tautphaus Park on Thursday, weather permitting.
