Last week they took on an equally tough competitor in Collegiate in Richmond. This game saw much more scoring and even a home run hit by first baseman Kyla Nase. No score was posted in this game, and they played in a modified inning and out format.

Next week the Royals take on Highland Springs in their first official contest of the season on Wednesday, March 15th, at home at 5 PM.
