California School for the Deaf, Fremont Eagles, the #2 seed, traveled to Santa Rosa last Wednesday. May 21 to take on top ranked Rincon Valley Christian Eagles. This was the championship game in the North Coast Section (NCS) of the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Division 6 softball tournament.
It was a game that featured a combined 30 base-on-balls and two hit batsmen by both teams. CSD jumped out to a 9-1 lead after two innings only to see RVC go ahead, 12-11 after five innings. CSD then answered with a 10 run sixth and added four more in the seventh for a 25-12 championship victory.
Eagles of CSD were led by sophomore lead-off hitter, Farrah Harmount, who went 4 for 6 with a triple, 2 walks, 6 runs scored and 4 RBI's. Junior Natalie Brentham added 2 doubles in going 4 for 6 with 5 runs scored and 4 RBI's.
Senior Darryian Thomas started for CSD and lasted 2 and 1/3 innings, giving up 7 runs, 3 hits, and 6 walks with 2 strikeouts. Thomas was relived by freshman Rebecca DiPaola who pitched the final 4 and 2/3 innings while picking up her third win of the year. DiPaola yielded 5 runs on 5 hits and 7 walks with 4 strikeouts.
Only other senior on the 14 player roster is Izcali Esparza. Sophomore Adele Daniels led the team with 21 RBI's over the 19 game schedule. CSD is coached by Justin Burns. Congratulations Ladies!
