Mt. San Antonio College’s try comes up short

BAKERSFIELD – There will be no back-to-back state titles for the Mt. San Antonio College softball team.
But the Mounties didn’t go quietly.
Amanda Fama hit two home runs and Vanessa Alvarado had three hits as Cypress withstood two Mt. SAC rallies to win its first California Community College Athletic Association title since 2006 with a 7-6 victory at Bakersfield College on Sunday.
Mt. SAC (38-13), getting two RBIs each from Christie Nieto and Tarra Smith (Covina), rallied from a 4-0 deficit to tie the score and trailed the Chargers 7-6 when Crystal Venegas grounded out with runners on second and third to end the game.
“We pulled out all our magic tricks,” said Mt. SAC coach Kelly Ford, who won state titles with the Mounties in 2003, ’05, ’07 and last season. “I’m just so proud of these athletes. To get to the (championship game) seven years in a row is not easy. There were so many people in the state who counted us out.
“I knew they had it in them, and like today, they just kept coming back.”


The Mounties were forced to rally after Fama gave Cypress the early advantage, hitting a line-drive home run to make it 1-0 in the first and following with another blast for a 2-0 lead in the third.
“Fama just had (Mt. SAC pitcher Alexa Limon’s) number today,” Ford said. “(Limon) did a good job against everyone else. Fama had her number. She was hot today.”
The Chargers took a 4-0 lead in the fifth following a single
by Brianne Webster, two walks and two hit batters.
But Mt. SAC, which still hasn’t won a CCCAA title in an even-numbered year, fought back.
Heather Harrison (Northview) led off the fifth with a single and Maurichelle Torres doubled to left. Cya Santos reached on a fielder’s choice to load the bases.
Nieto made it 4-1 with a single to left before a sacrifice fly by Smith made it 4-2.
Fama dropped the throw home, allowing Santos to score and make it 4-3. Korinne Randazzo then singled to tie it 4-4.
“Our team just decided to start playing our game offensively,” Ford said. “It was just clutch hitting and competing under pressure.”
Cypress showed some resilience of its own, making it 7-4 in the sixth on an RBI single by Nicole Nobbe and a two-run single by Alvarado.
The Mounties gave it one last try, cutting it to 7-6 with no outs in the seventh following a lead-off double by Samantha Sloniker (San Dimas) and consecutive singles by Santos, Nieto and Smith.
But Cypress’ Alyssa Freight then shut the Mounties down to secure the victory.

    I’m impressed, I have to say. Very rarely do I come across a blog that is both educational and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your thoughts is outstanding; the issue is something that not many people are talking intelligently about. I’m really happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to it.
