The Games

UPDATE-The No. 2-ranked Yavapai College softball team’s Tuesday doubleheader (April 5) against the Arizona Western College Matadors has been postponed due to mechanical difficulties with transportation. 

The doubleheader with the Matadors will be made up at a later date that is still to be determined. Stay tuned on GoRoughriders.com and all of Yavapai athletics’ social media channels for the latest information on the games and all of Roughrider athletics. 

Softball begins on Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Bill Vallely Field in Prescott, Arizona, where the Roughriders will host the Matadors for a doubleheader. After a few off days, Chandler-Gilbert heads to Yavapai on Saturday for a doubleheader that is slated to begin at noon. Live stats and live streaming will be available for both doubleheaders on GoRoughriders.com/Live

The Matadors

Arizona Western comes into its matchup with Yavapai at 11-24 overall and 6-20 in the ACCAC. Last time out, the Matadors were swept by Phoenix College. The Roughriders also swept AWC in Yuma earlier this season. 

The Coyotes

Chandler-Gilbert comes into its matchup with Yavapai at 14-15-1 overall and 13-14-1 in the ACCAC. Before the Coyotes head to Prescott, they will host a doubleheader with Mesa on Tuesday. The Roughriders also swept CGCC in Chandler earlier this season. 

The Roughriders 

Yavapai comes into its week of softball with a 15-game winning streak, 35-2 record, 27-1 conference record and No. 2 ranking in the NJCAA. Last time out, the Roughriders smashed nine homers in their sweep of Paradise Valley. 

Player To Watch

Freshman shortstop Lovey Kepa’a smashed four of the aforementioned nine home runs in Yavapai’s sweep of Paradise Valley and she also reached the 20-homer plateau in the process.

One Last Thing

A pair of sweeps this week would give the Roughriders their second 19-game win streak of the season.
