Bishop Amat sneaks past St. Paul: As a freshman, Cassie Padilla played on the St. Paul High School freshman softball team.
She transferred to Bishop Amat and sat out last year, her sophomore season. So it was fitting that Padilla took it upon herself to get the game-winning hit when the two teams met on Thursday. With two outs and trailing by a run, Padilla singled in the tying and winning runs as the Lancers (7-1, 1-0) overcame a four-run deficit to pull out a 6-5 victory over St. Paul (4-4, 0-1) in Del Rey League play.
