KINGMAN - Danni Lee held Parker to just one hit and the Kingman High softball team collected its second regular-season win Tuesday in Parker, 17-3. The win over the Broncs snapped a four-game losing streak for the Lady Bulldogs.

Ali Finkbeiner, Rachel Arave and Elise Santos each collected two hits for Kingman (2-6). Finkbeiner had a triple, Arave also reached on a base on balls, and Santos delivered two runs batted in.

Lee struck out seven but walked five to go along with the one hit.

Kingman dropped a game to Mohave on Monday in Bullhead City, 8-3. The Lady Bulldogs scored all their runs in the sixth inning after Finkbeiner reached first on a fielder's choice, Natalie Borgens singled and Juanitta Cooper hit a long home run.

"The girls played a solid game defensively against Mohave," said KHS coach Dave Vance. "They (Mohave) are a very solid team, and their pitcher was one of the best we've seen this season."

Kingman opened Division II, Section 5 play Thursday at Bradshaw Mountain in Prescott Valley. Results were not available by deadline.

Lady Tigers drop two

KINGMAN - After winning the first four games to open the season, the Kingman Academy High softball team has dropped four of its last five.

Two of those losses have occurred this week, 28-3 at Flagstaff (3-3) on Tuesday and 17-4 against Estrella Foothills (6-3, 2-2 S2) in a Division III, Section 2 game Wednesday in Goodyear.

"We knew there was going to be growing pains moving into the AIA, and we're now experiencing those," said KAHS coach Amber Freed. "We have played some really good teams the past couple of games. When you combine mental errors and good teams, these are the things that are going to happen."

Kingman Academy (5-4, 2-2 S2) takes on D-IV Bagdad (4-2) at 4 p.m. today in Bagdad.

"We are going to regroup and finish strong," Freed said. "KAHS is a great team both on and off the field. We are going to use these last few games as learning experiences and to be better in the long run."
