Bulldogs go 3-1 at Jamboree

GREAT FALLS — The 2013 version of the Butte High softball team made a smashing debut today at the Great Falls Jamboree.

The Bulldogs went 3-1 on the day in games that were played under a time limit. Butte High beat Helena Capital 3-1, fell to Kalispell Flathead 6-1 and rolled past Missoula Sentinel 8-0 and Missoula Hellgate 7-1.

“We played well,” Butte High coach Steve Stosich said. “Overall, it was a good day.”

Senior Nikki Guizzo belted two of Butte High’s home runs, while junior pitcher Jessica Robertson was lights out in the pitcher’s circle. Senior Katey Walsh and junior Baylee Thatcher also added home runs for the Bulldogs.

“They were long home runs,” Stosich said. “They were rockets way out of the park.”

The games don’t count in conference or overall standings for the Bulldogs. Stosich said he used the day as an opportunity to evaluate his team that didn’t practice outside this spring until Thursday.

“We played a lot of people,” Stosich said. “We had a different lineup for every game.”

The first game that counts is at 2 p.m. Tuesday when they take on Missoula Big Sky in a non-conference game at revamped Stodden Park.

Butte High 3, Capital 1
Guizzo homered and sophomore Maria Michelotti went 2 for 3 to backup a solid performance by Robertson, who struck out six Eagles and gave up one hit in four innings.

Hattie Thatcher, Ashten McCloskey, Justyce Connole, Baylee Thatcher and Walsh all hit singles.
