Currently enjoying a run to the Southern California Super Regionals, the Glendale Community College softball team earned its postseason berth with an outstanding campaign in the Western State Conference.
The Vaqueros (27-13) locked up their first playoff appearance since 2002 by going 12-6 in the conference's Blue Division to finish second behind College of the Canyons. As a result, the team garnered a considerable share of conference accolades, as voted on by the conference's coaches, led by a trio of first-team selections for pitcher Brandy Morin, first baseman Kitty Nguyen and outfielder Nancy Pinedo.
"It's been very fun. We all work together as a team and our bonding is great," said Morin, whose teammates Jena Kaser, Carley Zabka were named to the second team and joined by Casey Nicodemus and Adrienne Lozano as honorable mentions. "One of the reasons we have such a good team is our friendship is so much better than it was the year before. I think we were able to play as a team more than anything."
