Aztecs continue their hot streak


The Pima Community College softball team wrapped up a successful stretch against Central Arizona College, Glendale Community College and Chandler-Gilbert Community College on Feb 11 and 14.

The Aztecs continued their hot play and improved their record to 16-4 on the season.

The look of victors was one they wore naturally in their past six games. The Aztecs were too much for Chandler-Gilbert to handle on Saturday, Feb. 18, easily sweeping the doubleheader 9-1 and 10-2.

PCC kept swinging the bats in its Feb. 14 doubleheader, when the Aztecs punished the GCC Gauchos 7-0 and 19-3.

Pima also swept CAC on Feb. 11, taking down the Vaqueras 6-4 and 6-2.

Sophomore Marina Contreras keeps bringing the heat for the Aztecs. She remains the teams pitching leader with a 2.18 earned run average, followed by freshman Yvette Alvarez with a 3.17 ERA.

Sophomore pitcher Monet Ormsby is the squad’s leading hitter, batting a torrid .571.

Freshman catcher Yarelyn Romero follows up Ormsby hitting .500 on the season.

The Aztecs hope to keep up their hot bats and stellar pitching while on the road for their next couple of games, competing against South Mountain Community College and Arizona Western College. The Aztecs fared well against both last season, beating SMCC in three out of four games and AWC in four out of five.
