#7 Amador Valley-Pleasanton crushed #3 Archbishop Mitty-San Jose, 8-1, in the semi-finals last night. A trio of sophomores (class of 2014) did the damage vs perennial power, Mitty (15-2), and broke their fourteen game winning streak. Cal recruit, Vanessa Alvarez, was treated rudely in the circle by this NCS team. SS Ashley Lotoszynski homered twice and C Victoria Molina contributed three hits to their attack. RHP Johanna Grauer allowed the Monarchs one run on four hits and struckout ten in a six inning complete game. Grauer has already verballed to ASU (I believe).
Amador Valley went on to win the prestigeous Stampede Softball three-day competition while Mitty rebounded to grab third place. Mitty had won this tourney on multiple occasions previously but maybe a new Bay Area power has emerged for at least the next couple of seasons...
