On Friday, Feb. 18, the California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) softball team battled fiercely against Chico State University.
It was a breezy, semi-cloudy day for the students, players, and parents coming from both Monterey and Chico.
Although it resulted in a loss of 0-2, CSUMB still played their hardest and did not go down without a fight.
“Our pitcher is awesome, and the energy has been great, especially on defense,” said fourth-year Maya Richardson. “There have been a few good defensive plays, and there’s definitely potential to win.”
The players and coach seemed to have a good head on their shoulders and played hard no matter what. It was a struggle at the beginning for the team to get into the groove of things.
“Right now, we’re just struggling with situational hitting … and we just need to get our offense going,” said Brittney Perez (#19). “Our defense is doing really good, and our pitching is on point right now.”
It was hard for the team to get into their hitting, but every person in the game did great and played hard.
Although the team didn’t come out on top this time, there will always be other games for them to crush their opponents in the near future.
Softball will be heading to San Francisco to take on the Academy of Art on Feb. 23.
