Their season-opener against Jefferson Academy was Conifer’s lowest-scoring game of the season with only 3 runs and 5 hits.  Playing Holy Family nearly two weeks later, the team performed better in every way.  They scored more runs, had more hits, and recorded an on-base percentage of 0.444; this was an increase from 0.333 in the opener.  However, their loss to Castle Rock on Saturday, April 2 was actually one of their best games of the season.  In that game, the Lobos recorded their first home run, scored by junior Evan Clark.  Furthermore, they had their second-highest on-base percentage of the season thus far with 0.488 and recorded 10 hits, a season-high thus far.  The game against Bear Creek on Monday, April 4 was their worst performance of the year with season-lows in hits and batting average.  They also lost by their largest margin, in a 16-4 rout.  Going against Alameda on Tuesday, April 5 was a nice recovery for the Lobos as they scored 13 runs and doubled their batting average from the previous game.  They continued their dominance over Alameda on Thursday, April 7th, scoring a season-high 19 runs and recording their highest on-base percentage of the season at 0.576.  Furthermore, the Lobos recorded their second home run
