The 2020 softball season was truncated due to COVID-19, but the Mira Costa Girls Varsity and Junior Varsity softball teams were able to play a few early season games before play was halted across the region. The Mustangs are looking forward to the upcoming 2021 season hoping to repeat their successes from the 2019 season where the Varsity team made it to the CIF D3 quarter-finals for the first time since 2012 and the JV team finished the season with an impressive record of 10-2-2.
Although there were no Bay League softball contests in 2020, the Mustangs “won” the League and the entire Southern Section by finishing in first place out of all large schools (enrollment over 1500 students) with an impressive team GPA of 3.75!!!
Head Varsity Coach, Michael Smith, and Assistant Coach, Ted Mureau, are excited about the prospects for the 2020-21 team with several returning stars, a deep talented bench with last season’s JV team, and a solid group of new freshmen players. The 2021 season will be Coach Smith’s second year at Mira Costa, and he brings many years of coaching experience to the team. Whether a player is new to the game or a seasoned player, they will continue to develop their softball skills, grow as a teammate, and be part of the Mira Costa softball family.
Softball is a spring sport with games scheduled from mid-March through June. Tryouts will take place when athletic activities are cleared to begin at Mira Costa, pending District and County guidance.
