The Fulton varsity softball team won back-to-back games to begin the season.

Fulton scored nine runs during the first three innings of its game against Syracuse West en route to an impressive win April 9.

It proved to be quite a different story when Fulton took on Cortland April 17. Even though Cortland rallied to force extra innings, the Lady Raiders came through during the bottom of the ninth inning to secure the win.

Fulton’s season began April 9 with a game against Syracuse West. The Lady Raiders couldn’t have scripted a better scenario for a season to began.

By the end of the third inning, they had a 9-0 lead.

Fulton scored three more runs during the top of the fifth inning to extend its lead to 12-0.

Even though Syracuse West got onto the scoreboard during the bottom of the seventh inning, it came after the Lady Raiders added two more runs during the top of the inning to put the finishing touches on a 14-1 win.
