The work is done.
Now the waiting begins.
The Durango High School softball team capped the regular season with a 16-1, mercy-rule-shortened victory over Montezuma-Cortez on Thursday to get to 9-10 on the season, hoping that nine wins is enough to earn a second consecutive Class 4A playoff berth.
“I don’t know what’s going to be subjective if (anything). There’s just no answer,” DHS head coach John Bernazzani said of the playoff selection process.
The Demons scored 15 runs in the first inning. Durango had four players with multiple-hit games, led by Mackenzie Sill and Mikayla Jeffryes, who each were 3-for-4 with two RBIs.
“I think the bats, if you picked up one of them after the first inning, youd’ve scalded your hand,” Bernazzani said.
Corissa Bosick dealt the first inning’s big blow, hitting a grand slam as part of a 2-for-3, four-RBI day.
“She just really lit it up here at the end (of the season),” Bernazzani said of Bosick.
Every member of the DHS starting lineup scored at least one run.
