Lady Warriors Softball Team Earns 16th Seed For State Tournament

By Nicky Romero

The Socorro Lady Warriors softball team was awarded with the final 16th seed in the 2010 NM 3A State Softball Championship.
The Lady Warrior's first opponent will be the number one seeded Bloomfield Lady Bobcats.
The first round playoff game will be played on Friday, May 14, at noon in Las Cruces at the Field of Dreams Park.
Coach Gary Apodaca said, “We're going to go out and play our hardest and do the best we can. On any given day, anybody can win.
“So we'll go over there with a positive attitude and hopefully our girls will play the game that we've been waiting for, surprise some people and take a good win at the state tournament.
“We're just happy to be there. It's going to be tough, but it's anybody's game at this point. It's win you stay, lose you go home.”
The Lady Warriors go into state with a 10-13 record and finished in third place in District 5-3A with a 3-6 record.
Bloomfield completed their regular season as the number one team in the state. They finished with a 22-4 record and an unblemished 4-0 record in District 1-3A.
“The girls deserve some credit for all the hard work they did,” said Apodaca. “This is sort of like a payoff for them, even though our season didn't go as well as it should of.
We're still proud of our girls and they stuck it out and we're still there.”
