On Friday, May 9, Magnuson struck out 13 Bears and did not allow a hit as Coast Union dominated Cuyama Valley 16-0 in five innings.
That win improved Coast Union’s record to 7-0 in the Coast Valley League with one more game remaining.
In the victory over the Cuyama Valley Bears, senior catcher Cristina Plasencia had a pair of doubles and drove in three runs, and freshman outfielder Cynthia Cadena knocked in two runs and scored twice.
Magnuson also plated two runners and chipped in with two hits.
