Cal State East Bay concludes spring sports
By Idorenyin Uto-Uko
Softball finished the season with a 13-25 record. Despite their less-than-impressive winning percentage, the Pioneers were able to compete well in the Cal Pac Conference, finishing 10-10 in league play.
The team managed to sneak in some highlights throughout the year for second-year coach Barbara Pierce.
Jessica Peterson, an All-Division III honorable mention, was named Cal Pac Player of the week. She also hit .312 with a 2.93 ERA on the mound, with 136 strikeouts in 134 innings; Alyssa Johnson led the Pioneers in hitting; Amanda Thietz had a team high 23 runs scored; and Sarah Davani led the team with 14 stolen bases.
CSEB baseball was similar to the softball team in winning 13 contests and dropping 25. The record does not truly represent how successful the team was during the season. Devin Grigg led the Pioneers in hitting with a 336 batting average; Cody Haven became the all-time saves leader with 16; and Jake Walter had a .996 field percentage at catcher.
