In a game Quigley-Borg planned to get all three of her front-line pitchers some work, McAdams, who came into the game with the lowest ERA in the state at 0.63 runs per game, led off with two innings of no-hit ball, which earned her 18th win of the year. She added four more strikeouts along the way, raising her season total to 118.

The College of San Mateo softball team has done nothing but pulverize Coast Conference and Northern California teams for the last several years. This season is no exception, as the Bulldogs, seeded No. 1 in Northern California and No. 3 in the state, have outscored opponents in the month of March 97-4 following Tuesday’s 19-1 shellacking of Chabot.

For the second consecutive year, the Bulldog Softball team will play Stanford in a fall match. The action begins at 5pm on Thursday, October 25 at Boyd and Jill Smith Family Stadium on the Stanford campus.

College of San Mateo softball head coach Nicole Borg said Harlee Donovan’s ascent to one of the nation’s best softball players occurred at the end of last season when Donovan’s Southern Oregon University Raiders were beaten by Oklahoma City University in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) World Series.

Perennial contenders for the state softball championship, the College of San Mateo Bulldogs will have to wait another year for a shot at the program’s first title.

A year ago, the College of San Mateo softball team advanced to the community college state championship tournament by virtue of its pitching. This year, it was the bats that propelled the Lady Bulldogs back to Mt. San Antonio College.

The Bulldogs scored early and often, while starting pitcher Emily McAdams was nearly unhittable as CSM roared out of the playoff gate with a 10-1, five-inning, mercy-rule victory.

The league-leading College of San Mateo softball and baseball teams extended their win streaks this week.

It was perhaps fitting that the 400th softball victory by College of San Mateo softball coach Nicole Borg and her staff — 6-4 over host Ohlone College — also gave the state top-ranked Lady Bulldogs a game and a half lead over the rival Renegades in the Coast North Conference.

Despite a bump in the road last season that cost the Bulldogs a sixth consecutive crown, they had a chance to return to the top of the Coast Conference with a win over the rival Renegades Tuesday in San Mateo. It wasn’t easy, but CSM recaptured the conference crown with a 9-6 win over Ohlone.
