#12 Rider Softball Falls at Ryan

In District 4-4A softball, the consensus is that the two best teams are the two with the same nickname.

The Lady Raiders of Rider and Ryan look to be the class of the district, and they met for the first time Wednesday afternoon in Denton.

On this day, it was Billy Ryan's Lady Raiders who were one run better at home, taking a 4-3 win.

Abby Donnell went 2/4 with a run scored and two batted in for Rider, who falls to 16-6 overall and 2-1 in the district with the loss.

The teams will meet again April 8 at Sunrise Optimist Softball Complex.

In the more immediate future, Rider will have Friday off before visiting The Colony on Tuesday, March 22.
