City College’s softball team swept visitor Modesto Junior College in a double-header conference game March 12. With the first game being a close call 3-2 and the last game 15-2, the Panthers picked up two wins for the day.

During the first game, the Panthers had good pitching and great defense. City College sophomore pitcher Cortney Allen had seven strikeouts. Catcher Amber Roszkos, a transfer from Sacramento State, picked a Modesto runner off first base.

The first game remained scoreless until the top of the sixth, when Modesto catcher Alannah Jones hit a two-run shot over the left field fence.

The Panthers stayed in the game with a home run of their own from right-fielder Lauren Liming.

In the seventh inning tension was getting tight.

The Panthers needed one run to stay alive or this would become their third loss of the season.

City College Kim Briggs came through with a clutch hit, scoring her fourth home run of the season. Jen Zoller who pitched in relief was able to hold off the Modesto Pirates in the eighth inning. Third baseman Katie Campbell, who got the first hit in the game for City College, also got the last. She sent a line drive into left field bringing her teammate Lauren Liming home for the winning run.

At the start of the last double-header game, Jen Zoller got the nod to pitch, but it was all hitting for City College.

Allison Conyers got the bats started early, leading off the second game with a double.
“We finally woke up,” said City College redshirt freshman Britni Nickell.

Amber Roszkos got hot in round two, going 4 for 4, with three home runs and five RBIs. Kendall Sorensen, outfielder for City College, scored 2 for 3, with three RBIs. Freshmen Chelsea Dunnington and Cassie Towne both had two RBIs a piece.

After only five innings, Panthers won the conference game 15-2, bringing the combined score of 18-4.

For its next event, City College softball team will travel American River College for a conference game March 15.
