Conifer softball wards off the Cougars

EVERGREEN — Not many teams have given Conifer softball a run for its money this year.

And after last year’s 20-9 victory over Evergreen, the Lobos didn’t really expect the Cougars to bring their A-game.

But they did.

After going down early on their home field on Sept. 12, the Cougars honed in on their offense mid-game, even though it wasn’t enough in the end. The No. 6 Lobos (per Monday’s CHSAANow.com poll) won 8-4.
