Scottie softball traveled to Havre for a Thursday evening game against the Blue Ponies. The Scotties came out swinging and captured the lead early with runs in the first and second innings. The teams battled back and forth through seven innings, but the Ponies were not able to outplay the Scotties, and trailed the entire contest. The bats were hot with Khloe Krumwiede, Kennedy Schmidt, Abbi Kolstad and Ziggy Chamberlain all getting two hits, and Kiauna Barstad finishing with three. Glasgow defeated Havre 10-8, bringing their overall record to 4-3.

Following the win in Havre, the Scottie girls traveled west on the Hi-Line to face Conrad, Shelby and Cutbank. On Friday, Glasgow first faced the Conrad Cowgirls, who were unable to even the score against the Scotties. With a deluge of home runs and Tyra Johnson pitching a no-hitter, Glasgow claimed the win in three innings. While Johnson and Chamberlain both hit homers during the game, Kennedy Schmidt had two bombs, and Krumwiede let the Cowgirls have it with a grand slam. Improving their overall record to 5-3, Glasgow defeated Conrad 15-0.

In their next game, the Lady Scotties rolled over the Shelby Coyotes in another mercy-rule contest. In just three innings, Glasgow scored 29 runs, with Shelby only answering with one run. Krumwiede continued to be a powerhouse at the plate, going 4-4. She also hit for the cycle in the game with a single, a double, a triple, and a home run, bringing in five runs. Batting 2-2, Tiana Johnson also brought in five runs. Chamberlain went 2-3 and recorded another home run for the team. Schmidt went 3-5 in the game, and Tyra Johnson was 3-4. Final score: Glasgow 29, Shelby 1.

With 44 runs in just two games, the Lady Scotties had already left a mark in the west, but they weren't finished.

In their final full game of the weekend, the Scotties faced the Cut Bank Wolves. Once again, the Scotties came out swinging and claimed the lead, scoring three runs in the first three innings. The Wolves were unable to answer until the sixth and seventh innings, when they brought in one run each. Tasha Chamberlain had some success at the plate for the Scotties, going 2-3. Final score: Glasgow 3, Cutbank 2.

In their final game of the weekend, Glasgow faced Great Falls Central. The game would eventually be postponed due to rain, but did progress through four innings. After the fourth inning, Glasgow led Great Falls 8-5. The game is scheduled to resume this weekend in Glasgow at the Scottie Softball Slam. With the four wins, the Scotties improve their overall record to 7-3.
