The California State University, Dominguez Hills Women’s Softball ended the season on a high note when they swept Stanislaus State and were one game away from another sweep against their next competitor, Sonoma State. The Toros record for the regular season is 30-16 and now the focus has changed to the CCAA Championships and defending their West Region title.

CSUDH had an eventful few games against Stan State. A sweep with records broken by the women and their leader on the frontlines, head coach Jim Maier. Coach Maier clocked in his 700th win during game one while in game two senior  Raquel Jaime, set the single-season record for walks. Another star Toro, Alyssa Olague, struck out her 500th career batter. 

I asked junior Jay Ross what it is like being a part of such a successful program. “Being able to play for Coach Maier and defend behind Lala [Olague] has been so much fun. They both lead our team in such a positive way,” said Ross. 

Ross had successful gameplay on the field during the series against Sonoma State. She earned her season high three hits and stole her first base of the year. Ross also was recently named to the 2023 All-CCAA Second Team for the season. The Toro said she did not expect the achievement. 

“I was really honored. I did not know this accomplishment was coming,” said Ross.

Ross’ teammates were also part of the honor. Senior Alyssa Olagu, and Raquel Jaime, earned All-CCAA first team for the second time in their career. Sophomore, Alex Davis and senior, Alani Nguyen were placed in the second team alongside Ross.

Aside from these accomplishments, the team has been on a steady incline towards their goals. 

When asked how the team continues to stay on the path of momentum, Ross said, “We play the invisible opponent meaning we just focus on ourselves and the circumstances we can control. Once we figure that out, the good things come.” 

It is obvious the Toros mainly focus on their overall work as a team, which makes them strong when they compete. As they find themselves champions of the CCAA Championships, the competition increases but they maintain their strategies and focus on the group as a whole. Ross said when it comes to the Championships, her personal goal is to keep playing her game and “have fun with the girls.”

Last season, the Toros had their best season in CSUDH softball history. They earned the NCAA West Region Championship title, made it to the World Series and competed in the Championship Finals. It was the first time in program history that the CSUDH Women’s Softball team earned these achievements. The Toros continue on the same track this season and have the opportunity to continue their trailblazing legacy.
