Islander Softball Completes Undefeated Regular Season At 21-0-1, Earns Division III No. 1 Seed

There was a certain degree of inevitability to the last week of the regular season for the Islander Softball Team. They were scheduled to play three games, two against teams from the City League and the other one against Francis Parker, the team responsible for a 7-7 tie March 8, when the game was called due to darkness. That result became the only slight blemish on an otherwise undefeated season. Unfortunately the re-match between the Islanders and the Lancers didn’t occur, as Parker only had seven players healthy due to injury and they had to forfeit last Tuesday’s game. Ironically, the final score in a softball forfeit is 7-0.

The other two games were a 13-0 victory over a very young La Jolla Viking team and a 11-2 win road win at Morse. The only real importance of the final week of the season was the Islanders needed one league victory to win the City League title outright. Mission accomplished, as Coronado finished two games ahead of second place San Diego. The two victories did assist in solidifying the team’s No. 1 seed atop Division III for the coming CIF Playoffs, but more on that later.
