Three SCIAC softball teams make the playoffs

The announcement of playoff pairing for the NCAA Division III softball tournament were announced and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, La Verne and Redlands are all in, Now let’s hope the teams do a little better than last year when the same three got in to the same six-team regional and they were THE first three teams eliminated.

La Verne got the automatic bid by winning the SCIAC tournament. That looked like it was going to knock Redlands out of the running because few believed the SCIAC was going to get three teams in again this year and CMS seemed like a sure bet because it beat Redlands head-to-head in three of four meetings,. And it should have won the other game too.

Redlands coach Laurie Nevarez seemed to think her team’s chances weren’t good, and said as much after her team lost the SCIAC title game to La Verne.

But after all that the Bulldogs might have the best draw of the three local teams, who are headed to separate venues.

La Verne got the short end of the deal. But then again it was third to the other two in the regular season. The Leopards (27-18) will play at Louisiana College and face the host team in its opener. Louisiana (41-6) also happens to be ranked first in the country. No. 2 Texas-Tyler and No. 10 East Texas Baptist are in the same field. That’s a tall order!

CMS will be off Simpson College in Iowa. The Athenas are seeded fourth and will face fifth-seed Central (Iowa). Going by the rankings, the biggest obstacle looks like No. 8 Linfield, Ore. Central is No. 15 while host Simpson is No. 14.

Redlands will play in an eight-team regional at Wisconsin-Whitewater. The Bulldogs (32-120 will face Augustana, Ill. in its first game. That shouldn’t be an overwhemling task for a team with considerable playoff experience. No. 5 Luther (Iowa) is the highest ranked team in the group.

One up, one down in JC playoffs

Well it was one winner and one loser among the locals as the junior college playoffs started on Friday.

The San Bernardino Valley College women defeated Palomar 58-55 in most dramatic fashion as freshman Janelle Junior hit a three-pointer in the closing seconds for the final margin of victory.It was the only bucket of the game for Junior, who had been a pivotal player in SBVC’s stretch run.

Tanee Denson-Griffen tallied 21 points and seven rebounds. She was the lone player in double figures although Kimberly Kipp had nine rebounds and seven blocks, while playing on a very bad knee. Paige Haynes had nine points.

No. 7 SBVC (25-5) now plays the winner of Ventura and Cypress, most likely to be Ventura.

The No. 11 Chaffey men were on the other side of a thriller but came up short, losing to No. 6 Saddleback 66-64. Anthony Cammon led the way with 21 points while Mo Hughley had 14 points and 10 rebounds. Second-leading scorer Matthew Wallace was held to seven poinbts.

Ironically, the SBVC women beat Palomar in the same round last year and the Chaffey men lost a buzzer-beater to the same team, although it was one round later.

The SBVC men are up tonight, hosting L.A. Pierce at 7 p.m. The pressure is squarely on the Wolverines, who are the top seed in the South,
