"It was definitely a great way to end my senior year, says future UCLA Bruin, Selena Ta’amilio about the playoff run that Vista Murrieta had. "I mean of course you start thinking about the championships as you get close, but we took it one game at a time and though we came up a bit short, I’m really going to miss everybody from this program."

The Broncos made it all the way to the Quarterfinals in the CIF Southern Section Division 1 Softball Playoff’s with the help of 3 great outings on the bump from Ta’amilio.

Ta’amilio had been asked to pitch every game since the Bronco’s number two pitcher went on the disabled list several weeks ago. "Lina: as her teammates call her responded by pitching six consecutive shutouts. She ran into trouble last Thursday afternoon, but the Broncos came back twice in the face of certain defeat to beat the Orange Lutheran Lancers 10-7 on a dramatic eighth inning blast by game MVP Megan Holmes.

Saturday, the ladies from Vista Murrieta would not be as lucky as they dropped the quarterfinal match up game against Cypress 7-1. "Being one game away from possibly making it to the Championships is going to leave a little mark, but these girls fought hard, had some tough obstacles to face and I’m so proud of them for what they accomplished ," said Coach Dan Torres.

The Murrieta Valley Nighthawks also ran into some trouble against a pack of Wolves on Thursday as King overwhelmed Murrieta Valley 11-2 in round two of the Ford CIF-SS Division 1 Softball Playoffs. The two runs that Murrieta Valley scored were on solo home runs off the bats of Olivia Sanchez and Autumn Bishop.

It was a disappointing end to a great season for the Southwestern League Champions. The Nighthawks were undefeated in league play and had a 13 game winning streak before running in to the Wolves.

Great Oak was on the losing end as well when they dropped their CIF-SS playoff game in the first round to El Modena 9-4. Great Oak finished the season 14-12 and the Wolfpack placed second in the Southwestern League.
