Overall, today was a great experience for us and we got to see some great competition, Lake City coach Jesse Lenz said. We saw a lot of good things and definitely saw some things we need to work on. I could not be more proud of the effort from the girls, and I thought AK (Ashley Kaufman) threw the ball extremely well for the first outing of the year, especially against a tough Davis team. It was nice to see the bats come alive with home runs from Jalyssa, OZ (Zufelt), Abby Jankay and Emma.
Lake City is scheduled to play Stansbury of Erda, Utah, and Springville (Utah) today to wrap up tourney play.
