Oxnard College continued where other teams have left off, defeating the Pierce College softball team 14-3 and extending the Brahmas season-long losing streak to 14 games.
According to Pierce assistant coach Danny Moore, the team’s skills and work ethic have gotten better. They have also improved on their technique and stability in the game.
“I think today was a vast improvement for the girls,” Moore said. “I think they showed a lot of heart as they always do. They came out and finally started putting things together.”
Brahma pitcher Jacqulyn Lopez thinks that even though they lost the game, they finished off strong.
“I think we definitely did a lot better than our other games,” Lopez said. “We have been improving each game. So this game was very, very good.”
Although Oxnard won the game, Condors head coach Todd Prieto still felt that his team could have done better and could have had a stronger form and technique.
“I told the girls to just play a good game and adjust to the pitcher,” Prieto said. “Our girls didn’t adjust.”
Condors pitcher Victoria Rangel lead Oxnard by hitting a solo home run and scoring three runs.
The Pierce softball team is set to play another home game Thursday, April 10 at 2:30 p.m. against Hancock College.
