    The College of the Siskiyous softball team split a doubleheader against the Lassen Cougars on Wednesday in Weed. Lassen took game-one 3-0. COS won the second contest 8-2.

    Lassen scored it’s first run of the opening game in the third inning on a swinging bunt, a sac bunt, and a pair of errors. The Cougars also received plenty of help on their two fourth inning runs. Lassen took advantage of a bloop single, a sac bunt, a passed ball and an error to make the score 3-0.

    The Eagles had a runner in scoring position four times, three times with one out or less. Katelyn Bauman took the loss for COS (7 IP, ER, 5 H, BB, 4 K).

    Game-two was a didn’t-have-to-be marathon. Just a word to the Lassen College profs. Some of the players may be a little tired on Thursday from getting home late. It’s not their fault. The Cougar coach objected to an illegal pitch call in the second inning, and was hit with an “unsportsmanlike” warning from the umpires. Coach decided to protest the game at that time. The game was then delayed for about a week past forever, while the umpires proved that the unsportsmanlike warning was actually in the rule book. Nearly every inning for the rest of the game the Cougar coach had a complaint, some a bit legit, some not. Seriously, is there something in the Susanville water because it sure seems to be a pattern?

    Anyway, on with the game-two action.

    After setting the Cougars down in order, two by strikeout, in the top of the first, COS took a 1-0 lead in the bottom half. Lydia Strong singled with one out. A base hit by Kristin Cox put runners at first and second. Strong found her way home on a single by Sydney Haynes. (more…)

    Seriously, can it get any better for former College of the Siskiyous softball pitcher Anna Miller? Let’s review: California Junior College Pitcher of the Year in 2012, two final four community college state championship appearances, a scholar athlete, a scholarship to South Carolina Upstate, a perfect game for Upstate in the NCAA tourney last season, four career Division-I no hitters, and named National Player of the Week by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association this season. Miller currently leads the Atlantic Sun Conference in strikeouts (142), and opposition batting average (.145).

    So what could be better? How about going pro?

    Miller was drafted by the PA Rebellion as the 16th pick in the fourth round of the National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) College Draft a few days ago.

    Miller told SiskiyouYouth.com that being drafted is, “Incredible!! I am so excited for this opportunity.” (more…)
