2A softball: Playoffs feature four unbeaten region champions

Published: Monday, May 6 2013 8:51 p.m. MDT

Sophomore pitcher Natalie Nichols, who owns a 15-1 record, leads South Summit. She’s also batting better than .600 as the team’s lead off hitter. The team also gets tough pitching from Taylor Reidhead, who is 5-0 inside the circle, while Kaylie Atkinson, Jamie McNeil and Abigail Peterson lead the way with extra base hits.

The Wildcats have a tough first-round game against Parowan.

Fifth-ranked Millard will take on Altamont, which is actually a 1A school competing against much bigger programs with a lot of success.

The other first-round games — Grand vs. American Leadership, Gunnison vs. Richfield, and Summit vs. Beaver — should also be competitive contests.
