The SB girls got the road trip off to a winning start with an 8-5 win at Upper Lake on Thursday, before opening the Cloverdale tournament with a 12-2 loss to the host school on Friday.

The Crusaders played two more games to close out tournament play on Saturday, defeating Credo 16-7 and losing to Ukiah 15-3 in the consolation championship game.

Seniors Sierra Mendoza and Torrin Baty both pitched well at Upper Lake, with Baty also leading the way at the plate and finishing 3-for-3 with three runs.

Freshman Sahara Tupua also continued to impress and was 2-for-4 with a walk, while junior Aubree Saunderson was 2-for-4 with a run.

Kodi Meyer had a big game at the plate and finished 3-for-5 with a double and two runs.

Fellow senior Ella Jimenez was just as effective and also finished 3-for-5 with a double, while scoring three times.

The SB bats didn’t fare quite as well against Ukiah.
