Softball competes in second round of CIF playoffs

Varsity softball defeated Esperanza High School 5-3 last Thursday in the first round of CIF playoffs. The Royals rallied from a 2-1 deficit with some timely hits, and Annika Seedborg '14 had a solid pitching performance as visiting Rosary upset the top-seeded Aztecs. In a poll out this morning, OC Varsity ranked the Royals seventh in Orange County as they move into the second round of playoffs.

Softball Athlete of the Week 
Kaitlin Fitzgerald '13 was named OC Varsity's player of the week after the third baseman made a pair of difficult defensive plays and had an RBI to cap a rally in the sixth in last week's game versus Esperanza. She has committed to St. John's.

The Royals take on Edison later today in the second round of playoffs in an away game at 3:15 p.m. at Edison in Huntington Beach.
