Tyra Johnson winds up a pitch during a home game earlier this season. Johnson had an impressive weekend at games held in Huntley/Shepherd. The Scotties went 4-0 on the weekend and currently top the standings in their conference.

After four games over the weekend, the Scottie softball team improved their overall record to 11-3, and took the top spot in the conference with a record of 8-0.

The Scotties faced Shepherd in their first game of the weekend. Despite two errors in the game, Glasgow dominated offensively, scoring eight runs to Shepherd's one. Defensively, Glasgow denied the Mustangs any runs after the top of the first inning, with pitcher Tyra Johnson recording 11 strike-outs. Johnson also went 2-4 at the plate.

Other notable performances at the plate include: Khloe Krumwiede with 3-5, Tiana Johnson with 3-4, and Ziggy Chamberlain and Lexi Nixdorf both going 2-3. Final score: 8-1.

In their second game, the Scotties were matched up against the Columbus Cougars. Again, Glasgow dominated offensively, and with four errors in the game, the Cougars couldn't gain any ground. Tyra Johnson was 4-5 at the plate and bombed two homers for the Scotties. Abbi Kolstad recorded a homerun of her own, while Krumwiede went 3-5 and Chamberlain went 2-4 at the plate. Final score: 11-2.

In another offensive run-away, the Scotties defeated the Huntley Red Devils after five innings with a mercy rule decision. The Glasgow girls demolished Huntley in the third inning when they scored an impressive 11 runs. Of course, the Red Devils never recovered from the barrage of hits.

Tyra Johnson completed the game with another impressive performance, striking out six.

At the plate, Krumwiede and Kennedy Schmidt both hit homers, while Tiana Johnson went 3-4, Chamberlain was 3 for 3, and Nixdorf went 2-3. Final score: 12-2.

For their final game of the weekend, the Scotties met Great Falls Central on the diamond. The Mustangs were no match for the Scotties as Glasgow once again ran away with a win – even with five errors in the game. Going 2-4 at the plate and knocking two out of the yard, Krumwiede's bat was hot once again.

Adding to her 22 strike-outs for the weekend,Tyra Johnson went 3-5 at the plate and hit her third home run. Final score: 14-5.
