The Grand County High School softball team will travel to St. George, Utah this week to participate in the 2A state tournament.

In their first-round game on Thursday, May 10, the 4-4 Lady Devils, the No. 3 seed from Region 15, are scheduled to face the Parowan Lady Rams. Parowan is Region 13’s No. 2 seed, having finished in a tie for second place with Millard. Both Parowan and Millard had 9-3 region records during the regular season.

“As long as we show up and hit the ball like we are capable of doing, we should be able to give them a pretty good game,” GCHS head coach Stephanie Cluff said at her team’s practice on Monday.

The Grand-Parowan contest is scheduled to start at noon on Field 4 at The Canyons softball complex in St. George. The winner of that game will play again that evening at 6 p.m., against the winner of the Manti-Rowland Hall contest.

The double-elimination tournament, which has 16 teams in the bracket, will continue through Saturday. Check uhsaa.org for a complete listing of game times, locations, and opponents.
