The Truckee girls’ softball team got off to a tough start to the season, dropping a trio of contests to Sparks.

The Wolverines opened the season last Friday and fell 19-6 after five innings of play.

Junior Emma Baumbach led Truckee with a pair of RBIs. Sophomore Gisela Ponce, senior Stephanie Sarabia, senior Jackie Grace, and junior Josie Naber all had two hits.

Truckee then played a doubleheader at Sparks, and lost each game 15-0 after three innings of play.

The Wolverines will next have three-game series against North Valleys. The first contest is set for Friday, followed by a doubleheader Saturday.
