JSerra Softball Season Celebrates Great Season

JSerra softball had a stellar season in 2010. In addition to winning the Costa Mesa Tournament, several athletes were chosen for the All-Trinity-League teams. Casee Clauser made 1st Team All-League, Tori Munoz & Vanessa Avila made 2nd Team All-League, and Madison Myers-Cook made Honorable Mention.

The team also went 3-1 in the Costa Mesa Tournament, defeating Huntington Beach in the championship game. Casee Clauser was the tournament MVP, throwing two one-hit shutouts against Westminster and Huntington Beach. She struck out 28 over the two games. Michelle Rosol and Suness Jones made the All Tournament Team.

Tori Munoz and Vanessa Avila both maintained batting averages over 0.300, and Katie Ashby led the team with 24 runs. The team posted impressive wins over Liberty Christian and Segerstrom, and continued to grow during Trinity League play.

Notable JSerra softball alums include Michele Huber, who plays for Providence College and was recently selected for the All Big Ten East Third Team, and Alex Holmes, who plays for UC Davis and earned Louisville Slugger/ NFCA All-Region honors this past season.
