THOMPSON – Mattie Matthys still remembers the 12-and-under days with her Hillsboro-Central Valley teammates.

Now they are all headed to the state Class B softball tournament together after the Burros missed out last season. 

“This team has been playing together for multiple years and we’ve grown so much together,” Matthys said. 

“It’s pretty great to play with the same group of girls that I’ve been playing together with since 12U and seeing our goals from that time happening right now.”

The Burros suffered a heartbreaking 6-5 loss to Thompson on Monday in the East Region semifinal game but bounced back Tuesday with a 9-5 win over MayPort-C-G in a state qualifier at Larimer Field in Thompson.
