The Kenai Central and Soldotna softball teams took to the diamond for the first time this year at Guy and Judy Hayes Field in Soldotna on Thursday evening, and no heaters were needed in the dugouts.
The Stars came away with a 10-3 win over the Kardinals as the two squads opened their seasons under warm, sunny skies.
For SoHi, senior Serena Prior proved to be the difference, pitching all five innings with six strikeouts and one hit.
“She pitched inside and outside and had them looking,” said Soldotna coach Kelli Knoebel. “She took over the game.”
