Sutter

SUTTER, CA (MPG) - After going 5-0 in the Chico tournament last weekend, the Sutter Huskies continued their heavy-run scoring and dominant pitch production as they went 3-0 last week with shutouts.

Sutter opened with a 10-0 victory over Ripon on Tuesday, March 12, before they opened Pioneer Valley League play in a 22-0 win over Center on Wednesday, March 13. The Huskies ended the week on Friday, March 15, with a 10-0 win at Wheatland.

Sutter has nine returning players and they are all 2024 seniors. Anyone who has spent time around the softball program understood that last year's second-round exit in the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs was not ideal.

Huskies senior catcher/Dominican signee Morgan Heggstrom told the Dispatch it was heartbreaking how last season ended.

Heggstrom added that the biggest focus in the offseason was the grind and how they worked off the field. 

Heggstrom said the focus moving forward is the team motto of “All gas, No breaks.”

The five newcomers to the Sutter team for the 2024 season include a bunch of successful 2025 juniors who made great impact on the junior varsity level last season.

Junior pitcher Maddison Ramirez got the start against Center where she pitched five innings, gave up two hits and struck out nine hitters.

Ramirez told the Dispatch that she has learned to always leave the best effort on the field and be there for the team.

Yuba City had a late lead against East Nicolaus, and after two base hits with two outs, East Nicolaus took a lead in the bottom of the sixth and held on for a 1, 2, 3 top of the seventh to hold on for the victory.

Lady Honkers Head Coach Patty Gates told the Dispatch she was happy with the consistent positivity and cheering throughout the game for one another.

Yuba City junior pitcher Tori Hernandez led the Lady Honkers with two hits in the loss, and in the circle she pitched six innings and gave up nine hits and struck out six hitters in the 5-4 defeat.

Yuba City senior catcher Lexi Dell had a two-RBI single in the fifth inning.

In the win over Chico, the Lady Honkers had a 5-0 lead until the top of the sixth where Chico was able to tie the game. Yuba City took the lead in the bottom of the sixth after Dell advanced to third base and scored on a poorly thrown ball.

The Lady Honkers held on for the victory. Yuba City was scheduled to hit the road this whole week as they were scheduled to play at Woodcreek on Tuesday, at Antelope yesterday and are scheduled to play at Lincoln today at 4 p.m.
