Corning had an up-and-down week in softball action but won the most important games during a four-game stretch, playing around rainouts. The squad defeated Hoxie in a double header last Thursday but fell in back-to-back games during a Play Day in Naylor. Fortunately, those games do not count and the squad now stands at 11-3 overall and 6-1 in the 3A-3 conference as the season winds down.
