Alley homers highlight Bulldogs’ sweep of Bozeman

BOZEMAN — Katelyn Alley homered in each game Tuesday as Butte High’s softball team swept past Bozeman in a doubleheader.

The Bulldogs won the opener 12-2 before completing the sweep 9-2. The first game counted in Eastern AA standings, while the second one did not.

Butte High coach Ryan Stosich pointed to Alley’s home runs as the key to the wins.

“She opened up both games for us,” the coach said. “Kaidy (McClafferty) pitched well as usual, and Katlyn O’Brien got the win for us in the second game.”

The Bulldogs are back in action Friday when they head to Billings to take on Skyview in a conference doubleheader. That is a makeup of Saturday’s rain-out.

Leadoff hitter Sydney Stites went 2 for 2 to lead Bozeman.
