The Softball season ended with an intense game between our Lady Jags and the Garden Grove Argonauts. The game ended with the Argonauts prevailing with a score of 5-0.

With the softball season concluding, the Segerstrom Softball team has played their last game for this school year. They had a great run with a record of 12-10-1 and placed 2nd in the Golden West League standings. This year was memorable for the Softball team as they had much to reflect on. 

Compared to their last season, the Softball team has had similar results with their previous record of 12-15-1. They previously placed first in the Golden West League; despite this, the softball team concluded this year with a higher win-loss ratio. Additionally, there was a profound sense of enthusiasm throughout this season. 

“Last and this season were about the same. We had more energy and more fun at all the games.” 1B Kimora Tuipala (12) replied. “League this year was more competitive. We had our ups and downs but found ways to bounce back.” 

Between their struggles and accomplishments, the Softball team showed a remarkable year. The softball team showed dedication and compassion for both the game and each other. During their season, they would strengthen their bond and create fond memories.

“[I am] very thankful for being in the position that I am in; [to] be with my friends and [to] have a connection with the girls.” SS/C Amaya Carranza (12)  said, ”[as] one of the captains, [I got to see] everyone play their hardest and care for one another.” 

Their final game was with the Garden Grove Argonauts who went undefeated in four previous games. It was a fierce competition as the Softball team’s five-win streak was at stake. Unfortunately, the senior night ended with an Argonauts victory but it was a memorable game to the seniors. This was an emotional sendoff for the seniors as it would be the final game before graduating. 

“Senior Night was fun and emotional. My friends and I have been through a lot throughout these past two seasons but it was a way to remember the past four years with my friends: Gabby, Vic, and Jazmin.” P/1B/OF  Brianna Aguilera (12) stated. “It was hard to accept that we [aren’t] freshmen anymore and we’d no longer be playing together. It was nice seeing family and friends coming to support all of us and celebrate how far we’ve come.” 

While the Seniors reminisce on their experiences in softball, the rest of the team is optimistic about their next season. They are eager to improve their skills from this season and demonstrate their prowess on the field. 

“Next year, I hope to see a lot more team chemistry. [The] class of 2025 get[s] along very well which will show on the field.” P/1B Sophia Lambaren (11) commented. “As well as a lot more wins, the team next year will have strong players all around the field. With each of us having our strengths, [it] will surely reflect on the scoreboard.”
