After besting Calabasas at home, 4-1, on April 2, the Rangers
varsity softball squad took Calabasas again Friday, 14-5, improving
its season record to 2-4 in the Frontier League.
Nordhoff dominated the game throughout, with Calabasas trailing
the entire game and never scoring more than two runs an inning.
As Nordhoff coach Tom Husted simply stated, "Nordhoff was
too much for the Coyotes."
With Whitney Jenks still out with a broken hand, Tiffany Tolliver
had another strong outing on the mound. She was relieved by
Diana Garvin and Haley Lemmer later in the game. The three girls
allowed only nine hits, while Nordhoff connected for 21 against
Lady Rangers Carly Witt and Lindsey Collier each went four for
five, and scored a combined five runs.
The junior varsity Rangers rocked Calabasas last week, as well,
scoring 20 runs to Calabasas's 13. The J.V. Lady Rangers traveled
to Coyote country with the NHS varsity team.
Heading the Ranger charge was shortstop Mallory Hinks, who homered
to left field and added two singles, two walks and four RBIs.
Left fielder Lulu Leichtfuss added to the Coyote pounding, going
three for five with one double, two singles and an RBI. Taryn
Odle and Ashley Deslaurier each had two singles, with Odle contributing
three walks. Pitcher Rachelle Madrid tallied the win and had

Nordhoff Ranger junior varsity league record to 6-0.
Nordhoff is currently on spring break, and will return April
16 to play at Malibu at 3:30 p.m., varsity only.
