Roseville seeded third in Div. II

Granite Bay, Woodcreek in Div. I field; Valley Christian dominates league to make section’s Div. VII bracket
-A +A

Roseville might get another crack at Capital Valley Conference champion Del Campo this season.

Provided both teams make the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section Div. II final.

The Tigers (17-6-1, 10-4 CVC) traveled to Granite Bay on Thursday to conclude the regular season, but the result of that game was not available at press time.

Whatever the outcome, the Tigers capped off a season having won seven straight before Thursday, including a 9-0 drubbing of Oakmont last Friday that showed the team’s depth of talent.

Emily Wright, Sadie Langlet and Maddie Amos each drove in two runs, and star freshman pitcher Annie Lemos kept the Vikings off the scoreboard in a complete-game six-hitter. She struck out five and didn’t walk anyone.

Langlet had three hits, including a double, and Amos had a triple and a single. The Tigers scored three in the second and one in the third to give Lemos a lead to pitch to, then tacked on two more in the fifth and three in the sixth to complete the scoring.

Roseville will play host to 14-seed Rodriguez at 4 p.m. Monday. Should the Tigers win, they would play host to the winner of No. 11 Del Oro at No. 6 St. Mary’s at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
Del Campo is the top seed in the Div. II section bracket.

Granite Bay and Woodcreek, meanwhile, are in the Div. I bracket.

The Grizzlies (14-4, 10-2 Sierra Foothill League) won the ultra-competitive SFL but were given the No. 4 seed in Div. I. They will play host to 13-seed Kennedy at 4 p.m. Monday. Should they win, they would advance to Wednesday’s second round for a home matchup against the winner of No. 12 Davis Sr. at No. 5 Vacaville.

Woodcreek (13-7, 8-4 SFL) finished in a three-way tie for second and earned a No. 6 seed in Div. I. The Timberwolves play host to 11-seed McClatchy at 4 p.m. Monday.

Valley Christian (16-3, 13-1 Sacramento Metro Athletic League) finished off a dominant SMAL run with a 13-3, five-inning rout of second-place Buckingham Charter on Monday with Maddie Ochoa in the circle and the offense banging out 11 hits.

The Lions, the third seed in the Div. VII playoffs, will play host to six-seed Big Valley Christian at 4 p.m. Monday.

Should the Lions win, or the other local schools win twice, they would advance to the section’s divisional tournaments at Arnaiz Softball Complex in Stockton. Each division will play an eight-team, double-elimination tournament to determine its champion at the complex, with play beginning Wednesday with the Div. VII tournament and continuing through the next two weeks.
