On Thursday, the Foothill softball team played against Villanova Preparatory School at its sixth home game of the season, held at Ventura College. The Dragons defeated Villanova with a final score of 21-8.

Coach Priscilla Rouse-Becker believed the team was “playing with a purpose.”

“[They are] doing a good job of maintaining the offensive pressure throughout the entire game,” Rouse-Becker said.

Foothill scored every inning, which was a highlight of the game, according to Rouse-Becker.

“We have a goal to score throughout the game,” she said. “We accomplished that today. Every spot in the line-up scored at least once.”

Freshman Jasmine Razo was “the winning pitcher,” who also scored three runs while up to bat. Senior Monica Mendoza was a “leader” of the game by scoring five runs, and freshman Taylor Wreesman scored three times.

Rouse-Becker believes the team needs to improve on “minimizing errors,” both up to bat and on the field.

The Dragons now have a league record of five wins, two losses and an overall record of 11 wins, six losses.

The girls will participate in a tournament hosted by Lincoln High School on Saturday, April 24, and will play their third game against Bishop Diego High School on Tuesday, April 28.
