Early season success fades away for softball

Mason J. Rockfellow, Reporter

Bakersfield College’s softball team has been going back and forth, winning and losing equally the last two weeks, leaving them just out of reach of making the playoffs with only two more games left in the season.

BC went to Santa Monica for a doubleheader on April 7, the first game went smoothly for BC taking the win 4-1, and not allowing Santa Monica to score until the seventh inning.

The second game was cancelled due to rain in the top of the third inning.

BC was then host to College of the Canyons on April 9, Alex Avila hit a double, three RBIs, a homerun and stole a base, BC took the win 8-6.

The next day April 10, BC hosted Allan Hancock. Hancock took the win 9-1 only allowing BC one run in the fourth inning.

BC then hosted a doubleheader to San Bernardino on April 11, which ended in a split.

The first game was taken by San Bernardino in a close game that ended 12-11. Trinidad Lee hit a double, three RBIs and two homeruns. Even with BC hitting three doubles, seven RBIs and two home runs, they still came up short. The second game BC took the victory by 10 runs 15-5. BC totaled up six doubles and 14 RBIs. Trinidad Lee racking up another three RBIs, Vanessa Moralez with three RBIs, and Giselle Moore with two RBIs.

Next, BC traveled to LA Valley College on April 14 for a doubleheader, with LAVC taking the win at home 12-9 for the first game. Next, BC spilt the doubleheader and won the second game 10-8.

BC was on the road again and went down to LA Mission College on April 16. LA Mission took home the win 12-4 but allowed BC to score four runs in the fourth inning.

BC will have played their last two games on April 21 against Antelope Valley College who are third right now in the conference. And that’s going to do it this year for the Bakersfield College softball team.
