The Wildcats winning ways continued in Jeffco play Thursday night, as the team headed south to Highlands Ranch to take on the now 5A Jeffco foe, Valor Christian HS.
The Cats got things going in the first, as they manufactured a run off of a Christaana Angelopulos walk; then stolen base at 2nd, followed by a throwing error by the Eagles catcher to allow her to score from second base.
A-West would score twice in the 3rd- the first off of a Gianna Haley solo shot to centerfield (her first of the game). Followed up with a Savannah Clausen double and then later would score on a sacrifice fly by Belle Schwien.
The Cats would add another in the 5th, and then used a 3-run 6th to seal the deal. Alexis Folks would come thru with a two strike single, followed by an Angelopulos single as well. Gianna Haley then blasted a 3-run shot over the left field fence for her second HR on the day!
Valor would get one run back in the 5th and another in the 6th, and would get two runners on in the bottom of the 7th but A-West would work out of the inning and secured the 7-2 win! Savannah Clausen would pick up the win for the Cats on the mound!
The Cats are now 5-0 in Jeffco play, and 14-6 overall heading into the final week of the regular season.
UP NEXT: the Cats play their final home game of the season on Tuesday, 10/2 @ 4:00 against Columbine HS. We will honor our seniors *after* the completion of the game, so be sure to stick around! A-West then heads to Dakota Ridge on Thursday, 10/4 and Lakewood on 10/6.
The JV Wildcats also took care of business against Valor Christian on Wednesday night, cruising to a 14-5 victory! The Cats came out swinging and continued to set that tone all game! Every kiddo in the lineup would come thru with at least one hit on the day! Amanda Witt, Sarah Harbo and Garryn Fulcomer each had 3 hits a piece. Fulcomer, Harbo and Shayla Erickson would also each blast homeruns in the win!
