PCHS softball hangs tough against Carbon

It was the same old story for the Park City High School softball team – a loss that nonetheless represented incredible progress for the Miners’ program.

PCHS lost 12-9 against Carbon at home on Monday afternoon, playing its first full game against the Dinos in four years.

"Carbon’s a really good ballclub," said PCHS head coach Scott Chester. "I’m really proud of our team. They don’t quit."

The Miners went down twice by a large margin, fighting back with a pair of big two-out rallies, Chester said. They had the tying run at the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning before Carbon set down the final batter.

Freshman pitcher Cass Chester shut down the Dinos for the sixth and seventh inning after getting hit hard in the fifth. Junior Ciera Figge hit a single and a triple, while junior shortstop Laura Kubicki continued her season-long tear by going 4-for-5 with three singles and a double.

Park City will play the American Leadership Academy in Heber City at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 5, with the winner getting a berth in the Class 3A state tournament.

"If we keeping playing the way we’re playing right now, we’ll have a good chance (of beating ALA)," said Chester, who added that the Miners made state two years ago but not with such a deep team.

"This is a much better team top to bottom," he said. "As coaches, we’re really confident now that no matter where they hit it, our defense can make a play."

The Miners will also play Ben Lomond in a non-region game on Friday at 3:30 p.m. – in a literal Senior Night for lone fourth-year Annalisa Harty.
