So Cal Choppers Off To Good Start In ASA Gold Softball Tournament

sportslocalThe Valencia-based So Cal Choppers softball team beat the Gold Coast Hurricanes, 3-1, at the ASA Gold 18-and-under national championship in Oklahoma City.

The Gold Coast Hurricanes, a team from Florida, are the reigning ASA champions. A couple of Hart High graduates were key contributors in the Choppers’ win.


Destiny Rodino pitched 5 1/3 shutout innings, giving up one hit and striking out six. Melissa Brown scored in the first inning.

Jessica Spigner, a Valencia High graduate, knocked in Brown with a double. Spigner also got the save, recording the final out of the game with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh.

Valencia graduate Madison Shipman drove in a run in the first inning on a squeeze bunt. She scored another Valencia graduate, Lelani Bernardino.

The next game for the Choppers in the 64-team tournament is Thursday, a rematch with the Gold Coast Hurricanes.

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
