Bulldogs wrap season The Alhambra High softball team saw its season come to a close with a 3-2 loss to visiting Petaluma in a North Coast Section Division II semifinal on May 29. The Bulldogs, playing as the visitors, clawed back to tie the score in the seventh but couldn't close it out as the Trojans scored a run in the bottom of the inning. Alhambra finished the season 22-5 overall and a perfect 12-0 in the DFAL. The Bulldogs will return the bulk of their roster next year and should be a major contender again.
