As if playing on what East Union softball coach Brian Goulart calls a “million dollar field” at Stagg High wasn’t enough, the Lancers had to make the most of the opportunity.

In five innings Friday evening, the Lancers (5-2-1) racked up 18 runs to shutout the Delta Kings (0-6) in non-league action as they gear up for the fast-approaching Valley Oak League season.

“We had 11 girls on our team today get hits,” East Union head coach Brian Goulart said. “And Stagg was so classy. Even when we started to rack up some runs, they were out there rooting one another on and just enjoying playing the game.

“We really appreciate them letting us play on that beautiful field.”

Sophomore Marissa Romero was perfect at the plate with 4-for-4 performance, scoring twice during the matchup. Laura Gann, Jillian Goulart and Brittany LaMar all finished 3-for-4 on the day, and sophomore Gianna Gesler made the most of her appearances with a 2-for-2 showing that drove in five RBIs.

Sierra 12, Tracy 0
Sierra senior Daylynn Penner was the kryptonite for host Tracy Friday.

Penner finished the game hitting 3-for-4 with five RBIs coming by way of a triple and a grand slam. Both Iyanna Hughes and Alexis Barnes finished 2-for-3.

“Everybody hit the ball well up and down the lineup today. It was really a full team contribution,” Sierra head coach Nick Olmo said. “I was able to get everybody into the game, and it was a fun game for the girls. They were able to get out there and play loose, which was nice to see.”

Ripon 8, Central Valley 5
After jumping out to an early lead Friday afternoon, Ripon High was able to maintain its offensive prowess and defensive ability to cruise past Central Valley in a non-league home contest.

Nicole Kaiser led the offensive onslaught for Ripon with her 4-for-4 performance, which included a pair of RBIs and a pair of runs. She did most of her damage with a double and a triple. Alyssa Vickers finished the 2-for-3 at the plate with a pair runs scored.

McNair 6, Weston Ranch 1
Things just didn’t come together for the Weston Ranch girls Friday afternoon in its non-league matchup against visiting McNair.

While the Cougars were able to tally five hits, they also contributed three errors which severely hurt their chances to get back into the game.

Raileen Romo was credited with driving in Weston Ranch’s only run.
