Athlete of the Week: State Champion Spanish Springs Softball
Reno, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
What a comeback season for the Spanish Springs softball team. After a rough start to the 2016 season, the Lady Cougars finished with a bang by winning the Division I state title on Saturday afternoon at Hixson Park.
Spanish Springs was defeated by rival Reed in the North Finals, but got retribution by sending the Raiders to the losers bracket where they were ultimately bounced from states. After losing game one of the state title to Rancho, the Cougars held on in game two by a 2-1 score to win their fourth title in school history and the first since 2010.
For this accomplishment, we are naming them our News 4 Athlete of the Week! Congrats on a great season!
