Softball coach Nicole Borg insists a perfect season has not been a goal this season. And yet, with just two games left in the regular season, the state’s top-ranked team finds itself in such a position. The Bulldogs are coming off a 31-0 win over City College of San Francisco Tuesday to improve to 33-0 this season.

Behind the untouchable pitching dominance of Lauren Berriatua, CSM (26-0) is showing no signs of slowing down. The sophomore right-hander has split time with sophomore right-hander Lacie Crawford this season. As a result, Berriatua ranks 15th in the state with 95 2/3 innings pitched. Yet she leads the state in wins (18), ERA (0.22) and ranks fourth in strikeouts (115).

The College of San Mateo softball team keeps rolling, winning its 19th straight Saturday to start the year. The Lady Bulldogs swept a three-game home series over the weekend, downing College of the Sequoias 8-0 Friday before sweeping a Saturday doubleheader from Siskiyous by scores of 13-4 and 10-0.

Harlee Donovan blasted three runs and drove in 12 runs Wednesday as the College of San Mateo softball team remained unbeaten with a 27-0 win over City College of San Francisco in Pacifica.

The Bulldogs (11-0), ranked No. 2 in the state, made their intentions clear Sunday with a sweep of last year’s state finalists. First came a 2-0 victory over No. 3 Mt. Sac, the 2014 runner-up, followed by an 11-3 dismantling of No. 1-ranked Sierra, the defending champion, in a five-inning mercy-rule contest.

As a follow-up to last Tuesday’s five-inning perfect game, Lauren Berriatua and Lacie Crawford nearly did it again. The College of San Mateo softball pitching tandem faced two over the minimum in the Lady Bulldogs’ 18-0 five-inning, mercy-rule win over Gavilan.

The Lady Bulldogs (3-0) won their third straight to start the season in Tuesday’s home opener with a 10-0 rout of Modesto Junior College. CSM’s pitchers Lauren Berriatua and Lacie Crawford combined on a five-inning perfect game.

These are just two precursors to the stories of the 17 inductees composing the 2014-15 class to be enshrined in the CSM Athletics Hall of Fame. Since the CSM Hall’s inception in 2011-12, this year’s class marks the largest class ever inducted.

College of San Mateo softball went two-and-out in the state championship tournament, ending its season on a pair of losses to Mt. San Antonio and Santiago Canyon.

After blowing the lead in the top of the seventh, College of San Mateo used a four-run rally to advance past its Super Regional on Sunday with a 7-6 victory over San Joaquin Delta.
