After sweeping a trio of Coast crossover games last week, College of San Mateo brings a 16-3 record into league play, best among all 13 Coast teams.

Skyline College and College of San Mateo are sending both their women’s and men’s basketball teams to the California Community College Athletic Association state playoffs, with regional play beginning Wednesday evening at 7 p.m.

JD Carson scored 13 points, including the eventual winning points on a 3-pointer from the top of the key with 2:55 left in the game, as College of San Mateo closed out regular season Coast North men’s basketball play with a 66-61 victory at Cañada College in Redwood City Friday night.

Although the weather was indeed poor, a pair of College of San Mateo women sports teams ran past their opposition on Saturday. The CSM women’s softball team recorded a pair of mercy victories in the rain, by a combined score of 26-1.

College of San Mateo baseball (4-0) won its fourth straight to start the year, and sophomore pitcher Noel Valdez picked up his first victory as the Bulldogs rolled to a 5-3 final Saturday at Merced College.

With returning state women’s athlete of the year Lafu Malepeai leading the way, College of San Mateo’s defending state champion women’s softball team opened the 2023 season ranked No. 1 in the state preseason coach poll, released Friday.

CSM opened Friday with a 20-4 win over Laney College on the Hilltop. The Bulldogs rallied for five runs in the first, highlighted by a two-run triple from Vicente Feliciano. Chris Schuchart was 2 for 3 with a triple, a homer and five RBIs.

San Mateo County community college basketball rivalries continue this week, while spring sports teams get into action.

The Skyline-CSM doubleheader has been postponed due to flooding and the weather. The men’s game will be made up at a time and date to be determined. The women’s game has been rescheduled to 5 p.m. Thursday at Skyline.

Early Thursday morning, the Bulldogs heard, officially for the first time, that they were named the junior college/community college national champion. “I’m not real big on preseason or in-season rankings. The only ranking I care about is the last one,” said CSM head coach Tim Tulloch.
