HELENA — Butte High’s softball team dropped a 6-4 decision to Helena High today in the first round of the Western AA Divisional softball tournament at a very Windy Batch Field No. 4.
Butte High will play the loser of the 1 p.m. game between Missoula Hellgate and top-seeded Kalispell Glacier at 3 p.m.
A Butte win then and again at 5 p.m. would book the Bulldogs a trip to the Class AA State tournament.
Game summaries and boxscores will be posted later today.
