Carondelet Softball continues to gain recognition in the press. "Gabriela Williams drove in both runs in the third inning and pitched a two-hitter with 11 strikeouts and one walk in a 2-0 victory over Livermore. She was 2 for 3 at the plate, including a double. In a 2-0 loss to Foothill, which is ranked third in the nation by MaxPreps.com, Williams was 1 for 2 with a double and a walk, and allowed only one earned run on the mound, tossing a six-hitter," by Vytas Mazeika of the Bay Area News Group.
