From page B7 | April 04, 2014 |

Cheyenne Cordes had stretches where she simply sizzled at the plate for Rodriguez High en route to being named Gatorade State Softball Player of the Year.

The starting shortstop and leadoff hitter for the University of California enjoyed one such stretch over the last two weeks, batting a torrid .636 (14 for 22), including going 4 for 4 twice, with two doubles, four home runs, 10 runs scored and 13 RBIs in that span. One of her homers was a grand slam in an 11-1 pounding of Princeton.

Not surprisingly, Cal (19-11, 3-1 Pac-12) won all seven games. Cordes leads the team with a .459 average, nine doubles, seven home runs, 27 RBIs and 30 runs scored and has a .798 slugging percentage and .518 on-base percentage.

Jordan Wallace (Fairfield) batted .333 (2 for 6) over the last two weeks for the Golden Bears.

One of Cal’s wins was a 13-3 bouncing of Oregon State, during which Kiara “Ya” Garcia went 2 for 4 and scored two runs. The Beavers (11-18, 2-5 Pac-12) were also swept in a three-game series by Arizona with Garcia going 0 for 8.

The last two weeks were tough for Andriana Collins (Rodriguez) of UC Santa Barbara (21-12, 1-2 Big West). In losses to San Diego, UCLA and Cal State Fullerton she gave up 22 hits and 15 runs over nine innings. She also had a no-decision against San Jose State.

Marissa Escalante (Rodriguez) made her mark as a pinch-hitter for UC Riverside (19-17, 0-3 Big West), going 3 for 5, including a two-run homer in a 9-7 win over Loyola Marymount.

The Highlanders went 4-5 in that span with one of the setbacks a 6-2 loss to Calesha Shelley (Armijo) and Bethune-Cookman (12-22, 2-0 MEAC). Shelly was 1 for 5 with a run scored and stolen base in that game and went 6 for 29 with three runs scored, one coming in a 1-0 blanking of North Carolina Central, overall.

Alexis Konstantinopoulos (Armijo) made an appearance as a pinch-runner for Saint Mary’s (12-17) in an 8-0 win over North Dakota.

Alyssa Landrith (Vacaville) got into four games for Rutgers (13-10, 1-2 AAC), getting a win in relief and another as a starter with two no-decisions. Overall she pitched 17 innings, giving up 20 hits and 13 runs, 10 earned, striking out nine and walking three.

Idaho State (19-14, 2-1 Big Sky) went 4-4 with Gabby Lopez (Rodriguez) going 4 for 20, though one of her hits drove in both runs in a 2-1 edging of Portland State.

Hastings (11-10, 2-0 GPAC) also split its eight games with Dana Manibusan (Solano) batting .308 (4 for 13) with a triple and two RBIs.

Louisiana-Monroe (15-13, 1-5 Sun Belt) was swept in a three-game series by South Alabama with Rochelle Roberts (Vanden) going 2 for 9.

Graceland (4-18, 3-3 HAAC) snapped a 13-game losing streak by edging Missouri Valley 4-3 and went 3-3 over the last two weeks. Brandy Takeda (Wood, Solano) went 2 for 14 for the Yellowjackets.

Oklahoma Baptist (23-10, 10-2 SAC) went 12-3 over the last two weeks with Hannah Wilbur (Solano) having a hand in two-thirds of those victories. She won six games as a starter and one in relief to run her record to 12-3 and got the final out in another win.

Baseball

As a middle infielder, Brenden Farney (Fairfield, Vacaville) isn’t called on to drive in runs, but he did it anyway over the last two weeks with nine RBIs as California (14-12, 3-3 Pac-12) went 4-4. Farney batted .364 (8 for 22) with a double and two sacrifice flies.

Gene Nanney (Rodriguez, Solano) continued his hot hitting by batting .344 (11 for 32) for Culver-Stockton (16-13, 7-5 HAAC). He also walked four times and was hit by two pitches.

Jordan Haseltine (Wood) got into three games for the University of San Francisco (13-13, 3-6 WCC), with mixed results. He pitched a combined 3 1-3 scoreless innings in relief with two strikeouts before lasting a third on an inning as the starter and giving up five runs in a 12-5 loss to Oregon.

Eastern New Mexico went 2-6 over the last two weeks with Sam Hedrick (Rodriguez) riding a roller coaster during that time. After opening up 1 for 12, he batted .333 (8 for 24), scoring seven runs and driving in four more.

Santa Clara (11-17, 2-4 WCC) went 2-6 with C.J. Jacobe going 0 for 5.

Juliene Jones (Vanden) saved the best for the last game by going 3 for 5 with two runs and two RBIs as Hawaii (14-13, 2-1 BWC) ripped UC Santa Barbara 12-4. Prior to that Jones was 0 for 26,though the Rainbow Warriors still went 6-2.

A.J. Quintero (Vacaville) had his ups and downs for Cal State Monterey Bay (13-21, 8-16 CCAA), getting a win against Fresno Pacific and a loss against Cal State Dominguez Hills. He pitched two scoreless innings with two strikeouts, allowing one hit in the former before yielding five hits and five runs (four earned) in 2 1-3 innings in the latter.

Friends (25-10, 8-4 KCAC) got in 10 games, winning eight, with Domenick Romero (Rodriguez) going 4 for 24 with three RBIs.

Tyler Stover (Vacaville) made it into just three of nine games for Kansas State (17-10) over the last two weeks, but made a splash in all three, batting .455 (5 for 11) with a double, triple and five RBIs.

Sonoma State (14-10, 12-4 CCAA) went 5-2 with Alex Crosby (Wood, Solano) going 5 for 22 with four RBIs and as many runs scored.

East Central (20-13, 9-9 GAC) had its 10-game winning streak snapped, but still won nine of 10 games. Nick Spini (Armijo, Solano) batted .294 (10 for 34) with two doubles, seven runs and seven RBIs in that span.

Zack Welz (Solano) hit just .192 (5 for 26) but made the hits count for Texas Southern (9-16, 6-3 SWAC) by driving in 10 runs. He hit a three-run homer in a 9-1 win over Prairie View A&M and went 3 for 4 with four RBIs in a 5-2 downing of Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

Aaron Brasher (Solano) and Bellevue (19-10-2, 8-4 MCAC) enjoyed the last two weeks, the former batting .316 (6 for 19) as the latter went 8-2.

Women’s basketball

The best season in the history of Our Lady of the Lakes, coached by former Vacaville and Vacaville Christian coach Chris Minner, came to an end in the round of 16 in the NAIA Division I tournament.

The Saints (27-5, 16-2 RRAC) opened by edging Talladega College 97-94 before falling 72-67 to Loyola University, finishing eighth in the final NAIA D-I rankings.

“This has been the best team in school history,” Minner said in a release. “We will work on going even further next year.”

Track

The Chico State women’s team cruised to the title in the Johnny Mathis Invitational at San Francisco State, amassing 313.5 points to 162 for the runner-up Gators.

Emily Denton (Vacaville) won the 400-meter dash in 56.77 seconds and was third in the 100 hurdles (15.23) and fifth in the 400 hurdles (1:08.02.

Aja Erskine (Rodriguez) helped the Wildcats’ cause by taking fifth in the 200.

Chico State then hosted its annual Four-Year Invitational with the women’s team again finishing first. Denton was second in the 100 hurdles (15.57) and third in the 400 hurdles (1:07.32), while Taylor Graves (Wood) was seventh in the 100 (14.16), ninth in the 200 (29.27) and 11th in the 100 hurdles (17.27).

Sacramento State held its annual Hornet Invitational with the women’s team finishing first and the men taking second.
