The Conrad fast pitch softball team finally got on the field and hosted the Lady Wolves of Cut Bank in a Monday game.
The Cowgirls suffered a 3-6 loss in their home opener.
Cut Bank took the early 0-1 lead off starting pitcher Rashelle Jones and it lasted until the bottom of the second when the home ladies went on top 2-1.
Kelli Fagan got the rally going in the bottom of the inning when she smoked a single to center. Devon Rauscher also followed with a single.

Severe weather can strike in many different forms; and as we are approaching severe thunderstorm season in the state of Montana it is time to turn our attention to this destructive threat.
Close to 100 severe thunderstorms occur across the state each year, producing large hail and damaging winds, and on average six tornadoes per year.
Many of these storms can produce winds higher than minimum strength hurricanes and hailstones bigger than a golf ball, producing widespread damage and destruction to crops, personal property and businesses.
Tornadoes are possible in every part of the state, and can produce millions of dollars in damage as we experienced in Billings last June; along with the unfortunate loss of life that occurred in Sheridan County last July.
