Lathrop goes undefeated in softball

FAIRBANKS, AK-When you think of successful high school programs the Monroe Rams basketball teams comes to mind but now you can add Lathrop softball. The Malemutes completed a perfect season over the weekend with three wins. 8-1 against Wasilla, a 10-0 shutout of Juneau-Douglas and 10-4 over Hutch. The Malemutes went 11-0 in the Railbelt conference and 18-0 overall.

The perfect season also earned them their first ever conference title. The Malemutes are the number one overall seed for the large schools in the ASAA state tournament. West Valley will be the three seed.

Another milestone in a sense, the Hutchison Hawks, a second year team, went 4-2 in the MAC and will be going to state along with the Eielson Ravens in the small schools state tournament.
