Battling until the end, the Gardner Ice 18-and-under softball team dropped a doubleheader to Blue Valley in league action last week.
In the opener, Gardner lost a tough 14-12 extra inning decision.
“This was a hard fought game, and we really played well for most of the game. Our pitching and defense played well with the exception of one inning,” said Ice Coach Steve Adamson.
In game two, Gardner lost 9-8 in another closely contested game.
“We are always competitive in each game we play,” Adamson said. “I can always count on our players to give a strong effort in close games.”
