State champions, three reasons softball triumphs

Last season, the City College softball team went 5-15 in the Big 8 Conference, 11-26-1 overall. Anytime a team has more than double the losses than recorded victories, it’s heartbreaking for the fan base. A silver lining to this disappointing tale is that the teams deficient attempt at relevancy in the Big 8 last season makes  it that much more enjoyable to see them take the conference by storm this year. There are three substantial reasons why this year’s team is set to bring a championship back to City College in 2013.

• Keeping Pace: The softball team has gone from not ranked at all in the preseason to being ranked seventh in the latest California Community College Athletic Association’s state poll and third ranked in the Nor-Cal region. The team is currently showing that its members can keep pace by not only scoring more than 100 runs so far this season, but by having a better record than rival Sierra College (10-6-1) and the reigning state champions from Cypress College (12-3).

• Molly Ryan: This team has a multifaceted 20-year-old sophomore who plays both infield and out field while leading her team in almost every quantitative category of offense. She currently has a batting average of .512 percent, in comparison the San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey led the major leagues last year with a seemingly pedestrian .336 average. She also leads the team in stolen bases (7), runs  batted in (15) and hits (21), all while striking out only twice in 41 plate appearances.

• Consistency: A championship team in any sport must be able to replicate its single game successes into a long term plan for winning, and  this  year’s softball team has gone 13-2 so  far, beating each team by an average of more than double the oppositions scoring total. The team started off the season with a 21-0 shelling of Orange Coast College, and followed it up with a 9-0 victory that same evening. One month later, the team had two consecutive 10-0 wins in a one-week span. This team is showing it can carry consistency throughout the season.

The team has finished its non-conference portion of the season in completely dominant fashion, and is poised to continue that dominance against conference opponents en route to a state championship, and these three things will be the keys to bringing that championship back to City College.
