  • Sports Roundup

    West Las Vegas’ softball team appears to have shaken loose from early-season doldrums, scoring a convincing 14-4 win Wednesday at Santa Fe Indian School.

    The Lady Dons led 11-3 by the fifth inning and finished with strength to put the key non-district win on ice.

    Marrisa Cordova delivered another strong pitching performance, and the Lady Dons defense held, as the shortstop (Gabby Griego) to first (Larrissa Gallegos) groundout play was in midseason form.

    The game, originally scheduled Tuesday, was switched to a day later.
