At the beginning of
the day, the Pirate softball team, trailing
first-place Hancock by two games, had a chance.
They were in Santa Maria for a double-header with
the Bulldogs and could have created a four-way tie
for the Western State Conference Gold Division
title. That chance all but went away when AHC
scored four times in the first inning of game one,
previewing a sweep, 10-2 and 12-2, as the Pirates
ended the season dropping their final two contests.
Sabrina Cerda had a pair of extra-base hits and
three RBI on the day to lead VC (20-20-1, 11-7) and
Ashley Cerda had a pair of hits.
