ollege of San Mateo is off to a 3-0 start and got past its toughest opponent Saturday. The Bulldogs (3-0) took down Butte College 21-14 at Bulldog Stadium, grinding for 213 rushing yards on the day with its two-headed backfield monster of J’Wan Evans and Darrell Page.

In four minutes, College of San Mateo showed off all three facets of its game — and what a remarkable showing it was. The Bulldogs (2-0 overall) hadn’t played a game on their home field since Nov. 30, 2019 — a 41-0 victory over Modesto Junior College in the California Community College Athletic Association Northern California championship game — and celebrated their return to Bulldog Stadium in style Saturday afternoon, defeating College of the Sequoias (0-2) by the same score of 41-0.

With a roster featuring one sophomore and a dozen freshmen, the College of San Mateo women’s volleyball team is a work in progress. If the Bulldogs can get to where head coach Katie Goldhahn believes they go, it will be a successful season for CSM.

Luke Bottari and J’Wan Evans struck quite a balance in College of San Mateo’s 45-5 victory at Santa Rosa in Saturday’s season opener. Bottari, a sophomore quarterback, got the Bulldogs on the board with two first-half touchdown passes. Evans, a transfer from Virginia Tech, did the rest 183 yards rushing on 10 carries and two touchdowns to solidify the rout.

College of San Mateo (12-1 in 2019) in the north and Riverside City College (13-0) in the south are the “picks” of California Community College football coaches in the annual preseason poll conducted by the JC Athletic Bureau.

The 100th season of sports at College of San Mateo gets officially underway Friday morning (Aug. 27) when the cross country team opens its season at the Crystal Springs Early Bird Invitational.

College of San Mateo has been named the 2021 NFCA Cal JC National Coaching Staff of the Year, the Association announced Monday afternoon. Voted by the Cal JC member head coaches and selected by their peers, head coach Nicole Quigley-Borg and her staff guided the Bulldogs to an undefeated 2021 season.

As Nicole Quigley-Borg made her way home from Georgia after watching five of her former players playing for the NAIA college softball national championship Thursday night, she couldn’t help but be excited for them.

The profusion of softball talent College of San Mateo has exported to the Oregon NAIA ranks is not an accident. Not according to Southern Oregon University catcher Allie Stines. Stines (Capuchino) is one of five CSM transfers set to open play Friday in Columbus, Georgia at the NAIA Softball World Series. Her No. 1-seed Southern Oregon squad also features Cascade Collegiate Conference Player of the Year Lauren Quirke (Hillsdale) and CCC Newcomer of the Year Riley Donovan (Half Moon Bay). The No. 2-seed is Oregon Tech — Southern Oregon’s CCC archrival — featuring Aubrie Businger (Mills) and Mackenzie Driscoll (Hillsdale).

Softball extraordinaire Aubrie Businger was just settling in to her new role with Oregon Tech University last season when sports nationwide were hit with the 2020 pandemic closures. A junior transfer out of College of San Mateo, Businger was batting a solid .323 through her first 10 games with Oregon Tech, as the program closed with a four-game sweep of Carroll College-Montana prior to the season’s cancelation. Now, in maintaining her junior season of eligibility, Businger is batting respectable .367 through her first 10 games — “respectable,” because Oregon Tech is batting .396 as a team — with her Owls off to an unbeaten 10-0 start.
