Cajon softball could face its former pitcher this week

Ashley Simmons, who would’ve been one of the pitchers used by Cajon softball coach Jerry Tivey this season, now won’t be. That’s because Simmons has transferred to San Gorgonio.

Simmons was with Cajon just before the season started but has since transferred to San Gorgonio. Her transfer was approved by the CIF-Southern Section on Friday. She has not yet played varsity softball and I believe she is a senior.

Interestingly enough, Cajon opens league play on Tuesday — you guessed it — at home against San Gorgonio.

Cajon, meanwhile, finished play in the Hemet Tournament on Friday night, beating Palm Desert 19-8 in four innings to capture seventh place. Although she didn’t pitch her best, Sharon Estrada had a record-breaking day at the plate. Estrada went 4-for-4 with two home runs and a school-record nine RBIs to lead the Cowgirls.
