Sports Brief – Winning is essential for playoff berth

Brett Dyer

After a slow start to the season, the Lady Vaquero softball team is left two games from second place and a possible playoff spot.

The third-place Lady Vaqueros trail Cuesta College by two games and will need Cuesta to lose the rest of their remaining games to have any shot at making the postseason.

The Vaqueros will also have to win at least two of their last three conference games. The fate of this year’s team could ultimately be decided in tomorrow’s double header against Oxnard College, whom the Vaqs had recently defeated 10-8.

“The kids are still working hard,” coach Congleton said.
