HACIENDA HEIGHTS –
San Dimas High School has been the dominant softball program in the Valle Vista League for more than a decade, and they Saints showed Friday that the trend might continue.
Jennifer Aguinaga scored three runs and led a trio of Saints with two RBIs each and San Dimas opened league play with a 14-3 victory over Wilson in a game that was halted after six innings due to the 10-run rule.
Deenah San Luis, Kennedy Anderson and Carlie Salm all had three hits and two RBIs to lead an 18-hit attack for the Saints, who improved to 7-5 overall. Bethie Celaya was steady in the circle after a slow start, giving up four hits with three strikeouts.
Yecenia Cardenas had a homerun and two RBIs for Wilson, which slipped to 5-3.
San Dimas, after falling behind 2-1 after the first inning, put it away with three runs in the third, four in the fourth and five in the sixth.
San Dimas coach Don Pollard: “The league opener you never know. (Wilson) had been playing well, so you never know. You just have to take it, play hard and see what happens. It came our way this time.”
Wilson coach Lindsay Schatzman: “Obviously, San Dimas has some big hitters. They had good approach at the plate and went after it. They attacked every pitch we threw at them. They got a lot of base hits and came back.”
