“To me, our final destination is the state tournament. We have to beat the best teams to get there,” said Feather River College’s softball coach Taylr Hollis after the team’s victories over Lassen College last Saturday.
The Lady Eagles dominated the Cougars in a double header, winning 12-2 and 11-2. The wins elevated the Eagles’ record to an impressive 15-3 in conference and 22-14 overall. Lassen dropped to 8-10 in conference and 15-22 overall.
Though Feather River previously swept Lassen earlier in the season, Hollis made sure her players didn’t enter the game too cocky.
