Softball team looks to wake up bats after 22-15 season

The San Jose City College softball team earned the 10th seed among 17 teams in the Northern California Regional playoff bracket announced Saturday, April 26.

SJCC will travel to Santa Rosa Junior College that placed as the No. 7 seed, to play in a best-of-three series the weekend of May 3.

Head coach Debbie Huntz-Rooney said the two teams have some similarities.

“On paper, we are a very evenly matched team with SRJC,” Huntz-Rooney said. “They have a lot of the same things we do as a team.”

Both schools finished their seasons among the league’s best, batting well-above a .300 average and scoring over 200 runs in total.

SJCC ended the season with an overall record of 22-15 and 10-7 in Coast South Conference play, finishing in third-place behind Gavillan (28-10, 13-4) and Cabrillo College (26-11, 12-5). The Jags dropped the last two games by a combined score of 12-1.

SRJC finished with an overall record of 28-11 and 13-8 in Big 8 Conference play, placing third out of eight teams. Santa Rosa also won the last four games of the season, outscoring their opponents 24-5.

The Jags look to wake up the bats during the week leading up to the first round of the NorCal playoffs. Huntz-Rooney said the team needs to play good defense and make sure the bats are working to score runs.
