Butte High and Butte Central will be among the teams competing in Tuesday’s meet at Bulldog Memorial Stadium.

The Bulldogs (4-4, 2-1) will look to build on Saturday’s sweep of Billings Senior when they welcome the Hawks to Field 1 at Stodden Park for an Eastern AA game.

Bulldog first baseman Brianna Ossello hit a grand slam in Game 1 Saturday, while catcher Emma Cox drove in four runs to lead the Bulldogs in Game 2. Kaidy McClafferty pitched the distance in both wins.

Belgrade at Butte Central, 4 p.m.
It’s been a long 10 days for the Butte Central softball team.

The Maroons (1-2, 0-1) will play for the first time since their April 8 loss to Hamilton when they take on the Panthers in a Southwestern A game on Field 2 at Stodden Park. Last time out, BC was no-hit in a 16-0 loss to the Broncs.

BC played that game without injured pitcher Kloie Thatcher. She is expected back Tuesday.
