The Davis High softball team won its ninth game of the year – and sixth in a row – with a 7-4 victory over Stansbury April 4.
The Darts scored a run in the first inning before Stansbury evened things up at the bottom of the fifth.
A five-run sixth inning, led by Paige Elkins with a “big homerun which helped to break the game open,” according to head coach Mylei Zachman, gave Davis control of the game, winning by three runs.
“We had a good win,” Zachman said. “Stansbury has a really big park and we had to make the adjustments during the game. The girls did a nice job.”
Davis is 9-2 on the season and undefeated through four games in Region 2 play.
“I am happy with our start, but we want to do more than have a good start. We want to finish strong as well. We are not satisfied,” Zachman said. “We have preached all year it is about the team and that is true. We have a lot of girls doing little things and taking their role seriously to help us. From starters doing their job to the non-starters pushing the starters at practice. While certain kids always stand out, I can honestly say our start is due to 21 girls working hard each day and trying to be better.”
