Chemistry yields further success

The softball team at California Baptist University is holding a 24-6 record overall and a 7-3 record in conference play.

Bill Baber, head coach for the softball team, said his team is doing well.

“We are a very tight-knit team,” Baber said. “Playing for each other is a key in all sports.”

Baber said he feels the closeness of the team is going to help them in the long run.

“They bunt when they have to bunt, they hit when they have to hit,” Baber said. “They are able to perform well and that will help us out toward the end of the season.”

Baber said he is looking forward to watching the teams improvement this season.

“The best thing you can see as a coach is looking for the improvement every day,” Baber said. “If they continue to do that, we will be very successful.”

London Miller, junior kinesiology major, catcher and outfielder, said she feels the progress of the softball team is constantly improving.

“We have a good record, so the season looks great so far,” Miller said. “We will see how it goes from here.”

Miller said she feels good about her progress as a player.

“I just got back from injury the past year,” Miller said. “I feel like I am always there for the team.”

Miller said she is also hoping to go to the postseason.

“Right now, it is just one step at a time,” Miller said. “We just want to set little goals at a time.”

The team will face Hawaii Pacific Univeristy April 6.
