COTTONWOOD FALLS — The Chase County Bulldogs were exactly who the Moundridge softball team thought they were.

Chase County, one of the dominant softball teams in Kansas as they are the three-time defending Class 2-1A state champions, swept the Wildcats 11-1 and 12-2 in the regular-season wrap-up games on Tuesday.

“Obviously, this was a tough night for us,” Moundridge coach Clark Wedel said. “They are certainly the real deal. They hit the ball very well, have two great pitchers and are very good defensively. Someone will have to be on their game to have a chance to beat them. We did some good things in these games. Offensively, I thought we had several good plate appearances and we also made some nice defensive plays.  I had asked our team to be competitive and I thought we were.”

Moundridge takes an 11-9 record into regional play next week at Galva.
