Carlsbad Cavegirls give Faith Aragon birthday win vs. Artesia softball

ARTESIA – The Carlsbad Cavegirls gave starting pitcher Faith Aragon a gift she never would have gotten had it not been for the COVID-19 pandemic: A win against rival Artesia on her Sweet 16th birthday.

Both Artesia and Carlsbad have ended each other’s perfect seasons and with Carlsbad’s 10-4 win on Tuesday night that signaled the end of non-district play.

In a normal season the softball season would have ended last weekend but the later start allowed Aragon to show her improvements from the previous outing against Artesia to cap off her birthday with a good showing both in the circle and in the batter’s box.
