The College of San Mateo softball team still has seven games remaining in the regular season, but by virtue of its eight-inning, 12-9 win over rival Ohlone, the Bulldogs captured their fifth straight Coast Conference North title and the 10th conference title since 2000.

The Lady Bulldogs (22-2 overall) rode the arms of pitchers Samantha Dean and Christy Peterson to earn their 50th consecutive home victory with a 2-0 win over Napa Valley College (0-11) Saturday at Bulldog Stadium.

Having won No. 49 in a row at Bulldog Stadium Tuesday against Hartnell, CSM looked to extend its home winning streak, dating back to the 2014 season, Thursday against Cabrillo. The game was postponed due to weather, however, and has been rescheduled for Sat., March 19 at noon.

The Lady Bulldogs (15-1 overall) opened the day against West Hills Coalinga (3-8) with an 11-0 win, banging out 15 hits in support of starting pitcher Morgan Jones’ three-hit shutout.

With three straight wins to start the season, the College of San Mateo softball team has done nothing to tarnish its No. 1 ranking among California Community College teams.

It took Nicole Borg and her softball staff at College of San Mateo a total of seven years to reach 300 victories. The Bulldogs (2-0) kicked off their campaign at home Thursday with a 6-1 defeat of Merced in the morning, then a 20-0 five-inning, mercy-rule trouncing of Yuba in the afternoon for the landmark 300th win.

The Bulldogs took Palomar to the limit in the double-elimination tournament. After falling to the losers’ bracket with a 5-1 loss to Palomar Saturday, CSM eliminated Cypress with a 4-2 win Saturday night. Then the Bulldogs — needing to defeat Palomar twice — won Sunday’s championship opener 2-1 before falling in the nightcap 5-1.

Palomar College was the last team standing in the California Community College Athletic Association State Softball Championships, as the Comets won their fifth all-time state title. CSM took Palomar to the limit, advancing through the losers’ bracket to reach championship Sunday.

Lauren Berriatua reinvented herself over the past 12 months. The sophomore out of Notre Dame-Belmont was more than adequate in the circle last year, when College of San Mateo booked a return trip to softball’s state championships in Bakersfield College.
