Within the past years it has become normal to see Norco softball as one of the best teams in the nation.

With most of the team coming back this season, the offense looked deadly with Kinzie Hansen and Paige Smith at the front end of the lineup. With Hansen, being one of the top recruits in the nation for college ball, all eyes were on Norco, and hopes were high to get another division title. Norco came through going 29-1 losing a crazy upset game by none-other than the Santiago Sharks. The Cougars claimed as the number one team in the nation via Maxpreps late in the season, as their strength of schedule pushed them ahead of Great Oak High School in Temecula, California.

Of course, you win as a team, although major contributors for this amazing season were Sarah Willis, posting a 1.03 earned run average, one-hundred, sixty strikeouts, with a 26-1 record in the course of 122.1 innings pitched. Not only a stud on the mound, Willis’s bat was on fire this season hitting four homeruns, batting a .354 average and 21 runs.  Hansen and Smith are on their regular game hitting a combined sixty-four, eleven homeruns, and sixty-eight runs batted in. Other notable star players on the team this year are Allison Beecher and Abby Dayton, speedy outfielders who hit for average having Smith and Hansen drive them in.

The Cougars are now one win away from reaching the championship game. They play Huntington Beach on May 14th, and if they win, they will play either Gahr or the second team ranked in the nation, Great Oak. Let’s see if they can pull it off, and win back-to-back championships.
