The Cut Bank Lady Wolves’ softball team will open up their season this week with a couple days of home field advantage. The local diamond dwellers are coming off a fourth place finish at State last season and boast an experienced squad that will host Browning tomorrow (Thursday) before hosting a jamboree on Saturday.
Head coach Mike Pyette’s squad is led by returning All-Conference performers senior Jazmine Spotted Bear and junior Hannah Fetters. Spotted Bear earned All-State and First Team All-Conference honors last year while Fetters earned Second Team accolades.
Joining them this season are seniors Sarah McDonough, Hailey Wahl and McKenna Killian; juniors Jada Doore, Sam Burke, Haylee Kropp, Sydnei Littrell, Aryana Black and Shelby Big Spring; sophomores Sienna Spotted Bear, Camille Bradley, Bizzy Whitford, Kaylee Weatherwax, Sadie Pepion and Brianne Murphy; and freshmen Mariah Wahl and Tayleigh Running Fisher. Pyette is assisted this season by Cody Fetters and Emma Pyette.
Cut Bank and Browning are slated to face off Thursday at 4:30 in a game that was originally scheduled for Tuesday afternoon. Saturday, the Lady Wolves welcome Conrad, Shelby, Havre JV and Great Falls Central for a jamboree. Cut Bank will have games at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 12 p.m. and 2 p.m.
