Lady Raiders open softball season with five wins in tourney games

The Riverfield Academy Lady Raider softball team opened its 2018 season this past Friday and Saturday in impressive fashion, taking five wins in six games.

Timely hitting and pitching proved to be the Raiders best weapon against the five teams they competed against.

Hosting the 10th annual Lady Raider softball tournament, Coach Kyle King seemed pleased with his team’s grit and focus.

“Our pitching was very good for opening day and our hitting got better as we become more confident,” he said. “Defensively, we were average, but that will be cleaned up.”
