Dino fast pitch softball went undefeated in the Amateur Softball Association State Recreation Tournament on July 16 and 17 in Pleasant Grove behind 32 strikeouts from pitcher Leslee Lake.

In the opening game, the Dinos trampled Riverton 23-1 and followed the game with a tight 3-0 win over West Valley Blue. The Dinos fought off a late West Valley run, stranding two runners on the bases when right fielder Nicky Woodbury turned an amazing catch into a double play.

The Dinos next took a 7-3 win over the Silver Stars. Erika Potts and Whitney Williams each went 3 for 4 from the plate and outfielder Whitney Oliver made three catches.

In the championship game, the team faced West Valley Blue, which had come back through the loser's bracket. Kelsey Gillespie and Meagan Pearson lead the team defensively and an in the park grand slam in the third inning by Whitney Williams sealed the game. The Dinos took the championship with a 9-2 win.

The Dinos will travel to Spanish Fork in August for a season ending tournament.
