West Las Vegas’ Travis Valdez tries to tag out a Raton baserunner at first base Friday evening in one of two twinbills moved up from Saturday. On the baseball diamond, the Dons (12-11, 2-6) struck early in game one, then held on defensively to secure a 2-1 win. Raton’s offense was opportunistic in game two, however, leading to a 12-1 equalizer.
Deandra Gerdes fouls off a pitch in West softball’s doubleheader with the Lady Tigers. Over on the WLV softball field, meanwhile, Raton took game one 9-1, stranding multiple Lady Don baserunners. But West found its stride in the nightcap, winning 8-3.
