Spring College Notebook: Rodriguez grad Collins bounces back for Gauchos

From page B1 | February 23, 2014 | Leave Comment

It takes heart to come back from arguably the worst start of your career with one of your best.

Andriana Collins of the UC Santa Barbara softball team did just that with a 4-0 one-hit shutout of Southern Utah.

The week before, the Rodriguez High graduate gave up five hits and six runs in just one-third of an inning in a 9-1 loss to Texas A&M.

Against Southern Utah, Collins faced just two batters over the minimum and 62 of her 88 pitches were strikes. She fanned five and walked one, and the only hit off her was a single to left field by Katie Greenberg to lead off the bottom of the sixth inning. Neither runner reached second base.

The Gauchos (6-3) went 4-1 in the Fresno State Kick-Off tournament.

Also competing in Fresno was UC Riverside (3-6), which went 3-2. Marissa Escalante (Rodriguez) went 2 for 3 with a double in a 5-0 loss to Fresno State, but was 1 for 10 the rest of the week.

Kiara “Ya” Garcia (Rodriguez) had a superb tournament in Fresno, even if her Oregon State team would like to forget the trip. While Garcia was batting .400 (4 for 10) with a double, three walks and a stolen base, the Beavers (3-8) lost all five games in the tourney.

Cheyenne Cordes (Rodriguez) and California had a similar experience this week. The former Mustang batted .467 (7 for 15) with eight runs scored, three doubles, a triple, a stolen base and an RBI for the Golden Bears (5-4), who went 2-3 in the Campbell/Cartier Classic in San Diego.

Jordan Wallace (Fairfield) went 2 for 13 with a double for Cal.

Saint Mary’s (4-6) went 2-3 in San Diego, including a 4-1 win over the Golden Bears. Alexis Constantinopoulos (Armijo) got into one game in the tourney for the Gaels, a 3-1 loss to Cal State Fullerton.

Alyssa Landrith (Vacaville) faced a season’s worth of emotions in her first start for Rutgers, taking a shutout into the seventh inning before losing 4-2 to Colorado State in the Texas-San Antonio tournament. She later pitched a one-hit shutout in a 5-0 blanking of the host team, giving up only an infield single in the fifth inning, and struck out nine.

Rochelle Roberts (Vanden) went 2 for 2 with three RBIs and a run scored to help Louisiana-Monroe demolish Grambling State 19-0 in the Mardi Gras Classic. The Warhawks (7-3) went 4-1 in the tournament with Roberts batting .500 (4 for 8) with a double.

Bethune-Cookman (1-9) went 1-4 in the Hatter Classic at Stetson, getting its first win of the season by downing Campbell 3-2. Calesha Shelley (Armijo) batted .381 (8 for 21), including .583 (7 for 12) in the first three games.

Graceland opened the season by dropping four of five games in the Cowtown Senior College Classic. Brandy Takeda (Wood, Solano) had a tough tournament for the Yellowjackets, going 1 for 14 with a run scored and an RBI.

Hannah Wilbur (Solano) lost the shutout in the top of the seventh inning, but her Oklahoma Baptist teammates got her the win with a run in the bottom of the frame in a 2-1 win over Northwestern of Iowa in OBU’s Valentine Festival. She also went 3 1-3 innings for the Bisons (2-2) in a 4-0 loss to Friends, giving up two hits and three runs, only one of which was earned.

Baseball

C.J. Jacobe (Vacaville) helped Santa Clara salvage an otherwise dismal week by delivering the game-winning pinch hit single in the bottom of the 10th inning in a 4-3 win over Nevada. The Broncos (1-3) lost their other three games with Jacobe going 0 for 6 in those contests.

California opened its season with two wins over Texas before dropping the next two to the Longhorns. Brenden Farney (Fairfield, Vacaville) went 2 for 8 with two walks and two sacrifices in the series.

Eastern New Mexico won the first three games in a four-game series with New Mexico Highlands, as Sam Hedrick (Rodriguez) went 3 for 16 with two runs scored and an RBI for the Greyhounds (6-2)

Juliene Jones (Vanden) showed his versatility for Hawaii (0-3), pitching an inning in a 10-5 loss to Oregon before going 1 for 3 as third baseman in a 6-5 loss to the Ducks in 10 innings.

Cal State Monterey Bay (3-8) endured an 0-4 week as A.J. Quintero (Vacaville) gave up three hits, four runs (three earned) with no strikeouts and two walks in an 8-7 loss to Cal Poly Pomona.

After going 1 for 7 as Friends (2-1) split games with Science and Arts, Domenick Romero (Rodriguez) went 3 for 5 with a double and five RBIs in an 18-2 bouncing of Benedictine.

Tyler Stover (Vacaville) of Kanssas State (0-3) got the first hit of his collegiate career with an eighth-inning pitch-hit single in a loss to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

East Central dropped a three-game series to Ouachita Baptist with Nick Spini (Armijo, Solano) going 3 for 11 for the Tigers.

Aaron Brasher (Solano) went 4 for 9 with a double and two walks, though Bellevue (0-3) dropped all three of its games.

Sonoma State (3-3) lost three of four to Cal State Los Angeles with Alex Crosby (Wood, Solano) going 2 for 11 with two walks.

Texas Southern won only one of four games in the Jackson State Invitational as Zach Welz (Solano) went 3 for 14 with two walks.

Tennis

Former Oberlin standout Ariel Lewis (Vanden) was named to the North Coast Athletic Conference 30th Anniversary All-Decade team.

An Oberlin release said Lewis “is arguably the greatest female tennis player in school history as she was a four-time All-NCAC First-Team selection, two-time NCAC Player of the Year and two-time ITA All-American. Additionally, she was named as a Third-Team CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-American.”

The three-time NCAA tournament participant finished with the most wins in school history (93 in singles, 65 in doubles).
