Softball Blanked by Yucaipa in CIF Second Round

The Dana Hills softball team could not muster up enough runs on the road in a 3-0 loss to Yucaipa in the second round of the CIF-SS Division 2 Championships, which ended their season.

The Dolphins (19-6) sent their ace Lindsey Cassidy to the circle in the matchup. The senior pitched her way to a victory over Mayfair two days earlier in the first round, and pitched well against Yucaipa. Cassidy went six innings, allowing two earned runs on four hits while striking out six. The Dolphins had two errors in the contest.

At the plate, the Dolphins tallied four hits but failed to answer when Yucaipa scored one in the bottom of the fifth and added two more in the bottom of the sixth. –Steve Breazeale

Feagler Advances to State Golf Regional

Sophomore Clay Feagler has been on a hot streak for much of the 2014 golf season.

Feagler was an integral part in the Dolphins run to a South Coast League title and a fifth-place finish at the CIF Southern Division Team Championships. He won the CIF Southern Division Individual Championship and following a round of 75 (+4) at the CIF-SS Individual Championships, Feagler will look to keep his hot streak going for another tournament.

Feagler finished in a tied for eighth-place at the elite event, which featured the top golfers from the entire southern section. The finish qualifies him to compete in the CIF/SCGA State Regional at Brookside Golf Club in Pasadena on June 2. –SB
