Mother Nature played havoc with most of week two of the JC softball season. Ohlone's under head coach Donna Runyon will be trying to win her ninth consecutive CCN title.

Ohlone traveled to Fresno College for a double header on Feb. 12 and came away with a split. First game saw the Renegades defeat host Fresno 6-0 behind the four-hit pitching of sophomore ace Jessica Varady. All six runs came in the second inning as the offense was led by freshman first baseman Lauren Ermitano who went 3-3 with an RBI and a run scored. Freshman catcher Shelby Fowler was 2-4 including a double, two RBIs and a run.

Game 2 saw Ohlone suffer their first loss of the year, 4-0, to San Joaquin Delta College of Stockton, after winning their first three games. Not only were they shutout, but they were also no hit getting only three base runners on walks. Freshmen Katy Bihl and Ermitano yielded the four runs on six hits.

Last Sunday, Feb. 20, in Visalia, Ohlone rode the shutout pitching of Varady for a 6-0 victory. Sophomore Candice Christiansen had a home run, single and two RBIs while Fowler doubled, singled and stole two bases. Both Ohlone and Chabot played make up games on Sunday and Monday with other scores unavailable at press time. For scores and schedules go to TCV Sports website,

Next up for Ohlone is CCN opener at Foothill on Tuesday, Feb. 22; home to City College of San Francisco on Feb. 24, and finishing the week with a doubleheader on Saturday, Feb. 26, against Siskiyous College of Weed at 10 a.m. and Solano College of Fairfield at 2 p.m.
