Murrieta Valley is in first place in the Southwestern League with a perfect 6-0 record and Chaparral is a close second at 5-1. The Pumas’ only blemish in league play came at the hands of the Wolfpack Thursday, May 1. Great Oak’s Autumn Storms was nearly un-hittable as she tossed a one hitter and struck out 10 on her way to a 2-1 victory.

The Pumas have powerful shortstop Kristen Williams in their lineup. She is leading the league with 10 home runs and 30 RBIs. Cheyenne Balzer is the team’s leading hitter with a .462 batting average. On the mound for Chaparral is Karissa Frazier who leads the Southwestern League with 19 victories.

The Nighthawk offense is led by Stephanie Moreno and her .452 batting average. Olivia Sanchez provides the power for Murrieta Valley with four home runs and 24 runs batted in. Pitcher Lacey Alderman is who the Nighthawks hand the ball to and has 11 wins and boasts a 1.34 ERA, second in the league.

The two teams will play the second game at Chaparral Thursday, May 8. The action promises to be tense and exciting as the Southwestern League title is on the line and both teams can come out on top.

The Nighthawks will close out the season with two games against Temecula Valley while the Pumas will face Vista Murrieta. All games start at 3:30 p.m. Come out and catch some great girl’s softball action as the season winds down and the CIF SS Playoffs approach.
