Gav softball off and running

Showing off its offensive prowess, the Gavilan College softball
team pounded Mission 29-0 on Thursday. Gavilan piled up 17 hits and
41 total bases in the game, which was shortened to five innings due
to the mercy rule. The Rams kicked off their 2005 softball season
with three wins in their first five games following a split of a
doubleheader with Modesto last week at Gavilan College. The Rams
beat Modesto 4-1 in the first game of the twin bill and dropped the
second game, 5-0.
Showing off its offensive prowess, the Gavilan College softball team pounded Mission 29-0 on Thursday.

Gavilan piled up 17 hits and 41 total bases in the game, which was shortened to five innings due to the mercy rule.

The Rams kicked off their 2005 softball season with three wins in their first five games following a split of a doubleheader with Modesto last week at Gavilan College. The Rams beat Modesto 4-1 in the first game of the twin bill and dropped the second game, 5-0.

Earlier in the week, Gavilan knocked off San Francisco City College and split a doubleheader with West Hills in more non-league play. Gavilan hammered SFCC 10-1 behind the pitching tandem of Destinee Powers and Gina Botkins, who combined for a one-hit performance on the day. Powers struck out nine. Amanda Jackson led the way offensively with a 3-for-3 performance at the plate while scoring three runs. Kristina Pena went 2-for-2 on the day and scored a pair of runs. Gavilan jumped out out to a 10-0 lead over San Francisco City after only three innings.

The Rams hit the road to face West Hills JC in Coalinga. Gavilan lost the first game 8-4 but rebounded nicely with a 4-1 win in the second. Powers went six innings in the second game, striking out six while allowing only four hits.

Gavilan men’s hoops

The Gavilan men’s basketball team defeated Cabrillo 70-60 on Wednesday to improve its record to 11-14 overall, the first time since the 1999-2000 season that the Rams have won more than 10 games in a season.

What’s more, their most recent win came against a team that knocked off West Valley, one of the Central Coast Conference’s top teams, just last Friday.

“I was extremely impressed with my team’s defensive effort tonight,” said Gavilan head coach Chris Shoemaker. “It was the key to the game.

“Anytime you can hold a team like Cabrillo to just 60 points, you give yourself a good chance of winning.”
