Prior to Saturday’s game one of the doubleheader, Coach Cyndee Bennett and the Lady Bruins will hold “Sophomore Day” honoring their three sophomores Bradshaw, Taylor Tann (Syracuse, UT) and Kellie McCleve (Glendora, CA) for the final home games of their Salt Lake Community College career.
After a week of no play of the Lady Bruins, they are ready to hit the field once again, as Snow College heads to town to continue their historic rivalry at Bruins Field this weekend. With a record of 31-17 overall and 29-14 in the SWAC the Bruins will look to extend their season on the up rise leading to the Region 18 tournament.
The series will feature a pair of doubleheaders starting at 1 p.m. Friday, May 2 and noon on Saturday, May 3. Game two for both days will start 30 minutes following the conclusion of game one.
The last time these two teams hit the diamond was back on March 14-15 in Ephraim, Utah which was won by the Lady Bruins three games to one by a combined score of 34-11.
