Bulldogs bounce back in Billings

BILLINGS — The Butte High softball team rebounded from Friday’s losses to Billings West with a 10-9 Eastern AA victory over Billings Skyview on Saturday.

The second game of the doubleheader was postponed.

Hattie Thatcher went 3 for 4 with a double to lead the Bulldog 14-hit attack. Katey Walsh and Justyce Connole each hit a double and a single, while Maria Michelottie, Baylee Thatcher and Nikki Guizzo each smacked a pair of singles. Ashten McCloskey added a single.

Walsh drove in three runs. Jessica Robertson struck out 12 in the complete-game win.

Morgan Webster, Alyssa Baxter, Bekah Ellis and Taylor Hutzenbiler all homered to lead the Falcons, who fell to 5-3 overall and 2-1.

Butte High (4-3 and 1-1) is back in action Tuesday when they play host to Bozeman at 4 p.m. at Stodden Park.
