Softball Team Wins Southern Region Championship
Posted May 14, 2013
The Saints held a one game lead over second place Clackamas Community College (CCC) May 7 before May 10’s final league game with Lower Columbia Community College (LCC). A split with LCC would potentially leave the Saints in a two-way time with CCC for first and two wins would make it impossible for CCC and give the title to the Saints!
The Saints exploded for 15 runs in the first game and beat LCC 15-2 in five innings to secure at least the tie for first place in the Southern Region. The second game was much closer, as LCC held a 4-2 lead going into the top of the sixth inning before the Saints knocked in five runs to go up 7-4 and held off a late rally in the bottom of the sixth to win 7-5 and secure the championship!
Our Saints compete in the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC) Tournament May 17 – 20 at Delta Park in Portland.
