Varsity softball is heading into their first ever CIF-SS playoff game on Saturday, June 2. According to an email from Athletic Director Denny Lennon, the team is now 21-4 overall. 

On April 19, varsity softball played their first Liberty League game against Oakwood, where they won 12-3. The students also said that although the past games have been ‘slow,’ they have also been ‘intense’ and have kept the players on their feet.

On April 20, the team took a trip to Catalina to play against Avalon High School. Archer beat Avalon High School twice, winning 13-3 in the first game and 16-0 in the second. During game two, Morgan Dennis ’19 hit a grand slam, marking her fifth home this season.

Even though the year is coming to a close and the seniors have graduated, the whole team will be playing in the final game.

“The current Archer softball team, building on past softball success that include six league championships in the last eight years and two CIF-SS quarterfinal appearances, has won 19 of its last 20 games en route to the championship game,” Lennon wrote in an email.

“I’m just savoring it while it lasts,” said Kamryn Bellamy ‘18. “I’m making the most of every game and playing my best because I’m not  going to be able to do this again with these same people.”

“All of the seniors are amazing,” Angelica Gonzalez ’20 said. “Joyce is such a vocal leader for our team…Kamryn always supports us with her awesome strikeouts and Alex is an amazing captain for the outfield”.

“I’m going to always keep [the seniors] in my mind and in my heart and play for them because they mean so much to us,” Emma Alperovich ’20 said. “I’m excited to see what next year will be like.”

In light of the team’s loss of coach Mat last year, they team has come together to make the season ‘MATter’. 

“We have playoff shirts that say ‘Make It MATter’ in honor of Coach Mat, who passed away late last year,” Victoria Pinkett ’20 said. “So we’re playing really hard for him.”

In their second round of playoffs, the team won 13-3, thanks to their “great defense,”  Josie Garcia-Euyoque ’18 wrote in a email interview.

When the team played Leuzinger High School , who happen to be two divisions above Archer, the younger students worked together to win the game. Freshman Kayla Gather, Dennis and sophomore Chloe Eshel worked together to win the game 14-12.

Stay tuned for updates on the championship game.
