Starting with a look at Softball. The State Softball tournament will be taking place in Gillette, today through Saturday. The Cody Filly Softball team finished the regular season as the No. 5 ranked team in the state in the latest Wyopreps Coaches and Media Poll. The Fillies also ended the season with a 19-3 overall record, 10-0 in conference play and are the No. 1 seed out of the West at State. The Fillies open up State play today as they will take on the No. 4 seed out of the East, Laramie, first pitch at 4pm.
