CBS’ Snyder shuts down Devil softballers

While this isn’t the way the Davis High softball team had hoped to go into spring break, especially with Delta Valley Conference play looming after the vacation, coach Art Guerra had to take Wednesday’s 4-0 loss in stride.

That’s because Guerra knew the Blue Devils ran into a buzz saw in Christian Brothers pitcher Haley Snyder.

Still just a junior, but bound for Stanford on a scholarship, Snyder used a devastating riseball to strike out 13 DHS batters and allow just one hit.

“She doesn’t get hit a lot in (games in) the Sacramento area,” Guerra said. It was good for the kids to see that, to get that experience. It’s just hard because you have to be so disciplined at the plate.”

Snyder also hit a home run as part of a three-run Falcon first inning, but after that, Devil hurler Sarah Allen-Sutter settled down and matched her nearly out for out. Allen-Sutter scattered seven hits, but was never really threatened again, except when CBS scratched out a run in the fifth.

“Sarah pitched really, really good,” Guerra said. “It was actually a well-played game.”

For Davis, Sydney Rosenblum got the only Davis hit, when she reached on a bunt single in the third inning. In the next frame, Blue Devil Tarah Kalinen smacked one deep into the outfield that forced the Falcon fielder to fall over the wall to make the catch. But that was it for the DHS offense against Snyder.

Still, Guerra knows the real season starts Monday, April 8, when the Devils head to Franklin at 4:15 p.m. for their DVC opener.

“You play these first 17 games to get ready for the 10 league games,” said the second-year Davis coach. “We may be on a four-game losing streak but all of those came against top-12 or top-13 teams in the area and — other than one game — we didn’t get blown out.

“We’ll be OK.”
