Ground-rule doubles can be fickle beasts. College of San Mateo found that out the hard way Friday on day two of the California Community College Athletic Association championship tournament. The Lady Bulldogs were eliminated from the tournament at West Valley College in Saratoga with two losses Friday.

College of San Mateo is headed to a 10th consecutive 3C2A state softball finals tournament May 16-19 at West Valley College in Saratoga. The Lady Bulldogs (38-5) rolled past longtime rival Ohlone College, 8-1 and 8-0 (6 innings), in the Mother’s Day weekend Super Regional tournament at their home Tom Martinez softball complex.

The College of San Mateo softball team is headed back to a very familiar place. Thanks to a two-game sweep of No. 10-seed Ohlone College in the Northern California Playoffs Super Regional, second-seeded CSM is headed back to the 3C2A State Championships for the 10th consecutive season. The Bulldogs opened the series on Friday with an 8-1 victory and closed it out with an 8-0 mercy-rule win in six innings on Saturday.

The Lady Bulldogs rediscovered their pitching mojo Friday to finish off a sweep in the opening round of the California Community College Athletic Association Softball Northern Regional playoffs.

College of San Mateo sophomore Vanessa Lang enjoyed quite a reprieve in Thursday’s softball doubleheader split against San Joaquin Delta in San Mateo.

The Lady Bulldogs (8-1 Coast North, 27-2 overall) have thrown four no-hitters this season. They just missed out on no-no No. 5 in Thursday’s 9-0 mercy-rule win at Monterey Peninsula (1-7, 10-17).

The Lady Bulldogs went over seven weeks without a loss. But their 24-game winning streak on the softball diamond ended Tuesday with a 2-1 loss at home to West Valley in battle of Coast Conference North frontrunners.

For all the attention given to the Lady Bulldogs’ pitching staff and their four no-hitters this season, College of San Mateo’s offense is also the best in Northern California.

Another day, another no-hitter for the College of San Mateo softball team. Because of a rain makeup doubleheader Monday at home, the Lady Bulldogs (20-1) had two chances to record their fourth no-hitter of the season.

College of San Mateo softball pitchers are making it look too easy. The Lady Bulldogs (18-1) fired their third no-hitter of the season Tuesday, mowing down Monterey Peninsula in an 8-0 regulation win in San Mateo. Since dropping their opening game Jan. 26, the Bulldogs have won 18 straight.
