GRIFFIN SPORTS: Softball falls to late rally, tracksters advance to state meet


They came so close, but a seventh-inning rally by Eastvale (of the Norco area) spoiled the CIF championship dreams of the Los Al softball squad.

The Griffins were holding a 4-1 lead and just two outs away from a title when the Mustangs rallied to score four runs and stun the crowd of over 3,000 at Deanna Manning Field at Barber Park in Irvine.

The loss ended a great late-season run by Los Al which saw them beat No 4 seed Camarillo and unbeaten No. 1 seed Oaks Christian during their CIF run.   The Griffins finished the season with a 24-8 record.

Dan Albano of the OCC Register had a detailed story of the contest.

Ten Los Al Athletes will be headed to the State Track meet next weekend in Clovis in the Fresno area, after very strong showings at the CIF-Southern Section Masters Meet, held at Moorpark High on May 22.

Leading the Griffin pack was Junior Taylor Hofland (left) who took first place in the Girls Discus with a throw of 139′-7″, third best in school history.  Her previous best had been 127-9″.
