Conrad was in Shepherd for the Northern B/C softball tournament over the weekend.
They dug themselves a hole early on losing to Colstrip in a game ended by the mercy rule, 19-7.
Early on the team was down 5-0 but came back with three runs in the fourth and two more in the fifth to trail 8-5.
However, Colstrip, a team the Cowgirls owned during the regular season, exploded for nine runs in the bottom of the fifth and the contest was called.

The Pondera County Recycling Coalition (PCRC) has seen huge successes in the last year thanks to many volunteers and a community wide effort.
In the PCRCs year existence they have brought a permanent aluminum and paper recycling structure to Conrad. To date over 2,000 pounds of aluminum and 35,000 pounds of paper products have been saved from the landfill.
While there is a very small market for recyclables in today’s climate, the PCRC has been able to make enough money to continue to improve the recycling environment in Conrad.

Petition signers living on the first block of N. Maryland attended the city council meeting Monday to complain about two German Shepherd dogs that are terrorizing the neighborhood.
The situation has become bad enough that the Post Office will not deliver mail to the residents. This means they have to go to the Post Office to pick up their mail and there is no mail on Saturday because the Post Office is closed.
Commenting earlier on the situation, county commissioner Cynthia Johnson, who lives on the block, says about not having mail delivered, “I feel my civil liberties are being violated.”
Police Chief Gary Dent noted that citations have been issued to the people who own the animals and they have pled not guilty (‘not my dog’) in city court.
