The softball team entered this year’s postseason as the number two seed after finishing league in the first place spot of the Capital Valley Conference standings. The Tigers won the league banner with a record of 11-3 and just managed to edge the Del Campo Cougars, who finished 10-4, for the top spot.

During league, the girls were led by standouts sophomore first baseman Maddie Amos, junior pitcher Megan Anderson and senior shortstop Alyson Manzo.

Amos and Manzo were offensive powerhouses; as of last Saturday morning, Amos had 43 hits, the most on the team, and had the highest batting average at .483 while Manzo led the team in on-base percentage with .521 and runs with 23. Anderson boasts an impressive 151 strikeouts in 23 games and has a 1.86 earned-run average this season. In the Tigers’ first playoff game against the Beyer Patriots, who were the nine seed, Anderson led the team to victory with 12 strikeouts.

The Tigers defeated the Patriots 4-0 with two runs in the third inning and two more in the fifth and final inning. Last Saturday, the Tigers took on the seven seeded Saint Mary’s Rams in the second round of playoffs after the game was rained out last Friday.
