  • Lobos drop third straight

    GOLDEN — After winning its season opener, the Conifer baseball team dropped its third-straight game in a 10-0 loss to Golden on Thursday night.

    Trailing 1-0 entering the bottom half of the third inning, Golden delivered the dagger as Noah Mitchell hit a grand slam to give Golden a 6-0 lead.

    Six Lobos were able to record a hit, but that would be all the momentum Conifer could muster.
