Eagle Valley softball and soccer pick up wins
PALISADE — That, boys and girls, is how you get into the win column in the 4A Slope.
Eagle Valley softball got dizzy running around the bases during a 20-3 win at Palisade on Saturday.
“All in all, it was a great team effort,” Devils manager Jason Buvala said. “Everybody contributed offensively or defensively, or both.”
While pretty much everyone in an Eagle Valley uniform hit, one of the highlights was Regan Bossow, who was 3-for-5 with two RBI and three runs scored. Mady Callis was 3-for-3 with two more runs knocked in. Savanna Vasquez had the same hitting line and pitched the Devils to the win.

The Devils also scored from the run of play with Dominic Jones doing the honors.
Ever Ortiz got the win in net for the Devils.
“My guys moved the ball pretty well,” Eagle Valley coach Jere Simms said. “They created chances superbly, flamboyantly.”
