Coming off of a victorious season, Carlmont softball looks to have another successful year. But to do that, they have to grind it out in their training sessions. 

Although their season is months away, softball workouts started at the beginning of the school year. Through these workouts, the Scots have maximized their chances of improving their mechanics and techniques, making the team, and winning team titles. 

Scots are looking to win their league this year and potentially win the CIF-Central Coast Selection (CCS) Championships. Carlmont has been dreaming of winning CCS for more than a decade but always came up striking out short. 

Marco Giuliacci, varsity head coach, said, “To win the league then CCS, the girls have to have a fun, positive experience. To do that, the girls do four-on-one [workouts] on the field, catching, pitching drills, and strength and conditioning in the weight room to keep their strength and form intact.” 

Girls are ambitious to make the team and have set their eyes on capturing the CCS title.

“The workouts are super motivating and always challenge me to give 100%. I always like to lead by example by giving it my all and leaving all of my energy on the field. It would be an honor to make varsity as a freshman and help the team,” said Ava Conti, a freshman.

The Scots are working to rebuild their team and strike back after losing many of their seniors last season. Some people are unsure of what will happen but continue to stay positive. 

Gabby Lee, a sophomore, said, “I plan on working hard to help the team after we lost a lot of seniors. I hope we win CCS this year since we are preparing a lot for the upcoming season.”

Carlmont softball workouts are every Tuesday and Thursday after school in the weight room.
