St. Lucy’s defeated host Diamond Bar 4-1 in the championship game of the Diamond Bar Springfeast Tournament on Saturday, which followed dominant tournament victories over Sonora (4-0), Ontario (10-3) and Fresno Clovis West (3-0). The Regents are on fire behind super senior pitcher Danielle O’Toole (six shutouts) and hot-swinging Danielle Mavridis (batting .615 with 11 runs scored). The Regents have a team batting average of .341, a huge improvement over last year’s squad that struggled at the plate. The Regents have won eight straight and are 11-2 overall. However, one of those losses was a forfeit due to a father-daughter dance, and the other loss was a doubleheader split against Upland early in the season. O’Toole is 5-1 with a 1.26 ERA. The Regets have home tests against Pomona Catholic (Today) and Downey (Thursday) before opening the Sierra League against powerful South Hills on Friday at home at 3:15 p.m. Also, kudos to St. Lucy’s for finally posting a roster and stats on Maxpreps, make it much easier to follow one of the area’s best teams.
Check out Danielle Mavridis’ third homer of the season in the Regents’ 10-3 win over Ontario.
