It may not seem the Big Bear High School softball team’s participation in the Colorado River Tournament was a good idea with an 0-5 record. But take head coach Mary Schermer’s word for it. The Lady Bears (2-8) are on the right path.

“It was a great experience,” Schermer said. “We went back and forth in several games, just came up short on the final score. We’re better than what the record is showing.”

One of the bright spots has been hitting. Through 10 games, Big Bear is batting .323 as a team with 74 hits and 31 RBIs. Leading the way is senior Ashley Griffiths, whose .500 average includes 12 hits and eight RBIs. She has three doubles.

Sophomore Zoey Rice is hitting .421 with eight hits, four RBIs, a double and a triple. Senior Justyne Coyle is batting .355, freshman Aja Valenzuela is batting .345 and senior Jada Hastings is hitting .333.
