DOWNTOWN — For the second straight year, Santa Monica softball will play for a title.
After a 4-0 win at Dos Puebles on Tuesday, Samohi will get another shot at a title. The date of the game isn’t set, but it will be either Friday or Saturday.
“I’m proud of these kids considering where we came from this year,” said head coach Debbie Skaggs. “They have performed when they have to perform.”
Junior pitcher Whitney Jones went the distance in tossing the shut-out.
Samohi will play Ventura in the final.
Last season, Samohi was routed in the final by Hemet.
Samohi baseball’s season ends
Samohi’s baseball season came to an end Tuesday during a 7-2 loss at Peninsula in the second round of the CIF-Southern Section Division 3 playoffs.
The loss ends Samohi’s season at 26-5, a school best.
“I can’t complain,” said Samohi head coach Kurt Schwengel. “If you were to tell me that we would have only lost five games all season, I would have taken that.”
Samohi won the Ocean League with a 10-0 record this season.
