NYSSA – The Nyssa softball season wrapped up before the home fans on Friday, May 12 with a pair of losses to the visiting Outlaws of Enterprise/Joseph/Wallowa, the second-place team in the league standings.
Game one saw the Outlaws come out with the hot bats, putting up 20 hits and winning in three innings over Nyssa 21-0. Lauren Sapp recorded the sole hit for the Bulldogs in the game.
Nyssa coach Tracy Clever mixed things up a bit in game two, moving players around the throwing some younger pitchers on the mound. Going five innings, Enterprise/Joseph/Wallowa won in five innings with a 17-1 margin.
The Bulldogs see the season come to an end with a 6-18 overall record and a 4-8 3A Special District 4 showing.
Nyssa will lose the services of seniors Sapp (a commit to Treasure Valley Community College), Kylee Swift and Shelby Shuster.
“We return just two will-be seniors with the rest underclassmen,” said Cleaver. “Our improvements and strides leave us optimistic, and we look forward to continuing off-season play.”
