Pitch in and be a part of the team!
2015-16 looks like a fun and exciting time for Los Medanos Softball. A strong core of returning players and a great mix of newcomers should add up to a very enjoyable season. With the addition of Gabe Soliz as our Infield Coach, the coaching staff has improved and is eager to work with our student-athletes to become better students and better softball players.
Sophomores Brittni Brown and Maria Reyes return as Team Captains and their work ethic and skill level set expectations for all others and their eagerness to share their knowledge of the game enhances our team chemistry. Renee Smith, a returning outfielder, has been adapting to the Shortstop position and Julie Lopez returns from 2 years ago and solidifies our pitching and designated hitting needs.
Newcomers this year are led by "The Pittsburg Bomb Squad," Jayla Allen and Jazmyn Brown, two power hitters from Pittsburg High that have already put a couple out of the park in preseason games. Shayna Lee, from Tamalpais High, is a versatile player at all infield and outfield positions and adds a lot of "pop" in her bat from the left side. Texas lost a good one in Desiree Chavarria who is adept at playing both Centerfield and Shortstop and has a great understanding of softball. Our speed merchant, Rachel "Skippy" Garcia, is going to add some excitement on the base paths. Ryann Yelder, Aerial Enea, and Corina Salinas add depth to the outfield and Erica Hilderbrand to our infield. Freshman Abbee Cruz-Lawrence increases our pitching choices.
Los Medanos College Softball has surfaced again in the Bay Valley Conference (BVC) both
athletically and academically. Teams do not improve as drastically as this team did (3-33 win/loss
record in 2014 to a 16 win season in 2015) without a team of highly dedicated players on
the field and in the classroom!!!
Our 7 sophomores really were our leaders! Of the 7 players in the photo above, 5 had GPA’s over 3.3 which
earned them an Academic Award from the BVC!
Jenna Leavitt and Lyrica “Cool J” Langlois were Unanimous First Team selections,
Crystal Hicks was a Second Team selection, and Quincy Pierce was an Honorable Mention
selection on the All BVC Team. Three Freshmen, Jasmina Cross and Ashleigh Stephens-Coley
earned 2nd team honors and Vaneasia Olson was Honorable Mention!
We challenge our returning sophomores and incoming freshmen to uphold and improve upon
our successful 2015 Season!
Come join the CHALLENGE!
