Another Home Loss Ends Softball's Season
A disappointing season for the 2010 Pasadena City College softball team ended with yet another home defeat, an 8-1 loss to East Los Angeles College Wednesday at Brookside Park. PCC finished the year at 9-28 overall and in sixth place of the South Coast Conference with a 2-16 league mark.
The Lancers went winless in conference home games (0-9) and just 1-14 in all contests on their home diamond, located walking distance from the Rose Bowl.
In the season finale, catcher Nancy Perales batted 2-for-3 and third baseman Amber Frame (pictured) went 0-for-1 with 2 walks, 2 stolen bases and the team's only run scored.
Overall, sophomore centerfielder Marissa Rangel was the team's batting champion with a .368 average. Frame, also a sophomore, hit .337 with team bests in RBI (18), on-base percentage (.472), slugging percentage (.475), and she tied for the team lead in doubles (9), stolen bases (7) and home runs (1). She also led the SCC in walks in conference-only games with 16 (26 in all games). Sophomore second baseman Lupita Contreras batted .360 with 9 doubles and 15 RBI.
PCC's top freshman was shortstop Tiffany Rubin, who batted .303 overall and led the Lancers with 2 triples. Rangel, Frame, Contreras, outfielder Brianna Casillas, and first baseman Kimberly Garcia all completed two full seasons for PCC Head Coach Elaine Martinez.
