A victory to bring women’s softball back to its normal self

After going a whole week without winning, the softball team finally got a win over El Camino-Compton Center, 10-0.

Second baseman, Jenny Collazo, who lead off the first inning with a single said her team worked really hard for that win, “Well we worked hard and we just went back to what we know, so it felt good to get that win.”

Collazo who went 2-4 with two RBIs on the game, says she didn’t think her team got on a roll, “It’s honestly hard to hit slower pitching so we were working really hard to stay out of the air.”

The game started off with Collazo getting on base and Mackenzie Kutzke brought her home with an RBI single.

In the second inning Collazo then doubled to left field and brought home Kylee Brown and Brianna Vasquez, the score being 3-0.

The scoring didn’t stop there, overall the ladies racked up six runs in the second inning.

Although El Camino-Compton Center has not won a single game all season the team felt like the win would be good for its confidence, but one of the coaches didn’t.

Coach Bud Murray said, “Beating them doesn’t really mean much because they haven’t won a game all season.”

The women now look forward to putting this losing streak behind them and trying to end their season on a high note.

“That’s the goal,” said Collazo, “A high note is how we want to end our season so we’ve set new goals individually and as a team so we’re pretty focused and pretty excited for that opportunity.”

The softball team now looks ahead to play Santiago Canyon who they have lost to before, with that match ending 1-7.

On that game Murray felt that the ladies just didn’t do much, “Offensively we loaded the bases a couple of times but never got a hit that counted, they’re a good team but we were right there with them, we just didn’t do much.”

The women play Santiago Canyon on Saturday, April 16.
