Bulldogs formidable at Carew Classic

Alhambra High's softball team, including Cara DiMercurio (pictured), had a strong showing at the prestigious Michelle Carew Classic in Southern California April 3-5. Behind a potent lineup loaded with college-bound hitters, the Bulldogs reached the championship semifinals before falling to Los Alamitos. Kylee Perez and KK Boyd drove in runs as Alhambra rallied from behind to beat Vista Murrieta 2-1 in the quarterfinals. The Bulldogs also beat Cienega of Arizona 9-0 and Chaparral-Temecula 8-1 at the tournament with Hailey Sparacino delivering some big hits.
