Softball News

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.

Nothing like dropping a non-league game against a top-10 opponent right in the heat of the conference race to keep a softball team on its toes.

With the second inning going south, the No. 1-ranked Lady Bulldogs (6-1 Coast North, 26-4 overall) were forced to turn to McAdams in relief Saturday at West Valley. Entering with the bases loaded and two outs, the freshman briefly faltered by walking Malia Pula to force home the tying run. From there, though, McAdams was flawless.
