Cosumnes River College's baseball and softball squads survived the opening round of the California Community College playoffs last weekend and will resume action on Friday.
The baseball team, seeded ninth in Northern California, travels to #3 Feather River College for a best two-out-of-three playoff Friday and Saturday. The Hawks beat Galivan College in two straight games last weekend to advance to this weekend's play.
The softball enters the "super regional" round at Sierra College Friday. The Lady Hawks will face Cabrillo College late Friday afternoon in a double elimination playoff with Sierra College and Shasta College. The championship game or games will be played Sunday at Sierra.
The Lady Hawks (28-11 this season) won the Big 8 Conference this year thanks to the contribution of many Elk Grove-area players. Kaitlin Pires (Elk Grove H.S.) and Brianna Cherry (Cosumnes Oaks H.S.) were both big contributors at the plate.
