  • Lady Dons split with No. 1 Rams

    Ranked third in the state among Class 3A softball teams, West Las Vegas went toe to toe with the No. 1 Portales Rams on Thursday and came away with a mostly satisfying split.

    Lady Don errors proved costly in a 10-4 game one loss. After spotting Portales a 2-0 lead in the first inning, West came back and pulled within one.

    But miscues allowed the Rams to pull away.

    WLV ace Marrissa Cordova struck out 10 and held Portales to three hits but allowed five walks.
