Cheyenne Central Indians

CHEYENNE – Cheyenne Central split the first softball games in school history Friday evening in Gillette.

The Lady Indians opened the season with a 14-4 loss to Thunder Basin. They rebounded to win the nightcap against the Bolts, 12-9.

Jayden Gashler was 4 for 5 at the plate on the day with an RBI. Brogan Allen was 3 for 6 with a double, a home run and five RBIs. Ashley Bunch and Lauren Lucas both tallied two hits.

“The second game was much better,” Central coach Carrie Barker said. “We finally got to see some live pitching. Even in our third at-bat we got in the first game, we started making contact and hitting better.

“We came out swinging better in the second game than we did the first. We didn’t see any live pitching until (Friday).”

Central faces Campbell County (2-0) in a doubleheader starting at 10 a.m. today.
