The De Anza Dons softball team dropped their final game of the season 11-0 to the Ohlone college renegades in five innings. Despite the less than desirable result, the Dons said they were satisfied with how they closed out their finale.

“It was definitely emotional with me being a sophomore and it being my last game,” said first baseman Marissa Trejo. “We could have done better as a whole but we did OK.”

Ohlone seized an early lead in the first inning putting up five runs. The Renegades then posted four runs in the third and one run in the fourth and fifth innings. The Dons were unable to battle their way back into the game.

“I think some of our biggest changes needs to be with our overall confidence to make plays, to make contact with the ball,” Trejo said.

Right fielder Arianna Guzman praised the effort her team brought to the finale.

“We came stronger than we have before because it was our last game and we wanted to win real bad,” Guzman said. “There were things we could have done to improve but I think we did our best.”

Trejo said that most of the improvement the team needed was on the mental side of the game.

“I think some of our biggest changes needs to be with our overall confidence, to make plays, to make contact with the ball,” Trejo said.

Throughout the game, the Dons started to make those changes and see the results.

“We started off a little rough. We didn’t come out as strong as we could have,” said Mills. “By the end we started to pick it up.”

The season was far from easy for the Dons, who had to overcome several problems in the last few months.

“We’ve had challenges per our injuries,” said coach Martin Carrasco. “It could have been better, but we only have nine players because we lost them to injuries and grades.”

Third baseman Jessica Artega said, “All in all, I think that was a good way to end the game.”
