Softball: San Dimas sweeps Covina to win Valle Vista title; St. Paul sweeps Bishop Amat for Del Rey crown

SAN DIMAS SOFTBALL WINS VALLE VISTA: A dominating one-hit performance in the circle by Lindsey Hughes, with first place on the line, led San Dimas to its sixth consecutive Valle Vista League softball championship with an 8-0 win over Covina on Monday.
“I just wanted to beat them,” Hughes said. “I was nervous at the start but, because I know their coach (Mark LeVier), I had this big desire to win. I do want to thank him though because he helped make me the player I am today.”
Freshman Brook Jackson drilled a two-out home run to right-center field in the bottom of the third inning to give the Saints a 1-0 lead.
“I was expecting the pitch to be outside,” Jackson said. “I was able to move it to right center. This is an amazing feeling (to win the league title) because I’ve never experienced it before.”

BISHOP AMAT SOFTBALL FALLS SHORT: The St. Paul High softball team still has to win one of its two remaining Del Rey League games to claim the outright title, but Monday’s 10-7 triumph over rival Bishop Amat clinched at least a share of the crown and assured the Swordsmen the league’s No. 1 seed for the upcoming playoffs.
Behind the bats of seniors Lovie Lopez, Krystal Gutierrez and Dani Munoz, St. Paul improved to 9-1 in Del Rey play and completed a three-game sweep of the Lancers at York Park. Lopez led off the bottom of the first inning with a solo home run and finished with two RBIs, Gutierrez had three hits — including an even deeper shot than Lopez’s in the first — and Munoz had three hits and two runs.

    St. Paul pounded Amat! Amat did make things interesting but SP lineup was just to much for Amats pitching. Great game, SP is explosive WOW!

      I agree but this year was going to be SPs year no matter who coached Amat. They have several high caliber travel players. Very talented squad
