   Rambelle softball went 2-3 at the West Texas A&M Invitational in Canyon, Texas Feb. 12 through the 14th. 

   The Belles dropped their first three games of the competition before finding their groove in the final two games.
In the first three games against Chadron State, Colorado State-Pueblo and Lubbock Christian, the defense seemed to struggle.
The Belles gave up a combined 17 runs in the first three games with junior pitcher, Kenedy Urbany giving up eight earned runs in her two starts in those three games.
   However, the final games saw the Belles’ bats get hot and scored 24 combined runs over the last two contests.
In the game against Metro State University-Denver, Urbany and freshman Taegan Kirk got their first home runs of the season, Kirk’s first career home run for the Belles, en route to an 11-6 win.
   The final game of the WT Invitational, against Fort Lewis College, brought more of the same from the MSU game the day before.
Belles scored 13 runs on 14 hits, with Kirk hitting her first career grand slam and freshman Becky Wilhelm hitting her first career home run on their way to a 13-1 run rule victory in five innings.Now the Belles are 8-3 on the season as they start a two week road trip before returning back to Mayer Field on March 4 to host a four game series against Eastern New Mexico.
