After respectable — though not always winning — efforts against the likes of Templeton, Nipomo, Carpinteria, Santa Maria and Pioneer Valley, the Coast Union softball squad was eager to get into the regular Coast Valley League season.
The reason became clear in the Lady Broncos’ first three CVL games (against Valley Christian Academy, Maricopa, and Coastal Christian): Coast Union has not allowed a run, winning by a combined score of 47-0.
So far the hitting, defense and pitching has been dominant for Coast, and there is every reason to believe the team will continue its CVL supremacy.
Junior hurler Ellie Magnuson pitched a no-hitter against Coastal Christian on March 31, and given her experience and savvy having played with a highly competitive travel team in Salinas for several years, the team knows it can count on Magnuson to keep opposing batters at bay.
The next home game for the Lady Broncos is April 17 against Cuyama Valley, a 3:30 p.m. game.
For the second time in a week, the Coast Union tennis team gave Morro Bay all it could handle, but Coast came out on the short end of a 10-8 score Thursday, April 2, at Coast Union.
Junior Alexis Mirales won his set 6-3, 6-2 and 6-0, and Max Rodriguez and Jimmy Welch each won their sets for the Broncos.
The next, and last, home match for Coast Union is Wednesday, May 6, against Dunn School at 3:30 p.m.
