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.
