HS Softball: Grand Junction looking for postseason redemption

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) The Grand Junction Tigers have had another very successful season after finishing with a record of 15-4.

A big reason for their successes has been their strong upper-classmen, led by eight seniors who are determined to make their mark when the regional tournament takes place this Saturday.

"We're going out every game expecting it to be our last," said senior second basemen Molly Findlay. "So that makes it fun and gives us an edge, but we definitely want to leave our legacy, so it's motivating."

"This senior class, I've been with a lot of them since they were eight years old," head coach Adam Diaz said. "It's going to be an edge for us, so they've been there before, they know what's expected and it's their last year, so they're going to leave it on the field."

They earned the 13 seed in Region Four.

Their group consists of fourth seeded Fossil Ridge, Highlands Ranch, and Columbine.

Grand Junction will take on Columbine first at 10 a.m. at Triple Crown Sports in Fort Collins on Saturday.
