A two-run home run hit by sophomore Whitney Cooper in the first inning set the tone for the Sedona Red Rock High School’s win over Camp Verde High School at home Thursday, March 18.

The Scorpions tallied a win with a final score of 7-6.

The Camp Verde Cowboys came out swinging in the first inning with the first five at bat hitting the ball and managed to put the first run up on the board. The Scorpions put a halt to the Cowboys’ early streak with two forced outs at first base and a strike out by Cooper on the mound.

Sedona Red Rock High School softball coach John Brown said Thursday’s game was the best Cooper’s looked all season.

In the seventh inning, Camp Verde made a push to tie the game, but the Scorpions were able to stop them.

The Scorpions went into the inning with a 7-3 lead and came out only one run ahead.

Camp Verde softball coach Debbie Miller said her team had the scoring run on base but they weren’t able to bring them home.

“Bottom line, our defense is struggling,” Brown said. “We were able to cut errors back against Camp Verde. We were able to hit the ball, which is why we won.”

The Scorpions improved their record to 7-5-1 for the season.
