SANTA ANA, Calif. - The Santa Ana College Softball team is headed to the 2022 CCCAA Softball State Championships in Bakersfield held from May 19-22nd.
Santa Ana (37-7, 20-4) punched their ticket to the championships after defeating the No. 5 seeded Long Beach Vikings (29-13, 15-6) two games to none in the second round of the CCCAA SoCal Regionals last weekend.
The Dons will be one of eight teams in the state participating in the double-elimination style tournament and will open with a matchup against the North No. 2 seed in the Butte College Roadrunners (43-1, 20-0) on Thursday, May 19th at 8:00 p.m.
Butte will surely be a tough matchup as they've only lost one game all year while leading the state in runs scored with 381 and sit at second in batting average at .381.
But with the 2022 NFCA California JC Pitcher of the Year Emily Rosas in the circle, the Dons should feel confident as she's proven can hold her own against the best in the state.
