Girl’s Softball Powered by Strong Bats
By: April Zavala
Despite dropping their first 605-League game at Pioneer by a score of 12-11, the Eagles’ softball team proved themselves to be a great team during their pre-season games. At press time (Monday, March 21) the girls currently hold a record of 8-7 (5-1 home and 3-6 away).
The Eagles had an 11-8 lead heading into the bottom of the 6th inning, but Pioneer stormed back with a walk-off win, scoring two in the 6th and 2 more in the 7th to take the first league game of the season. The teams will have a rematch at Glenn on Friday, April 8.
Some of their amazing preseason wins highlight the booming offense of this team, including defeats of Firebaugh by a score of 19-5, Ganesha (19-6), Cabrillo (20-1), Leuzinger (17-3), and Gabrielino (12-2). They currently stand at 3rd in the 605 League and 18th in the Division VI for softball.
Some of their star players include senior Gabriela Ortega, junior Kaylani Moncada, as well as Julia Cole, Beatriz Galvez, Aileen Lopez, Anais Perez, and Kristy Rodriguez.
