    lol, she does.

    How about a little girl-on-girl action?:



    Don't let Kim Reeder's calm demeanor fool you. The Notre Dame High School softball pitcher knew exactly what was at stake when she had Monte Vista Christian's Katie Turner 0-and-2 with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning Saturday at the Salinas Sports Complex.

    "Yeah, I knew I had a perfect game going," the sophomore MVP of the Tri-County Athletic League said. "But I didn't want to talk about it or think about it because I always jinx myself when I do."

    Reeder retired Turner on a grounder to second baseman Serena Benavente to secure an 8-0 win over Monte Vista and help the five-time defending Central Coast Section Division III champion Spirits reach the semifinals of this year's tournament.

    No. 1 seeded Notre Dame will play No. 5 seed Capuchino at 7 p.m. Wednesday at San Jose's PAL Stadium for the right to try for another CCS crown on Saturday.

    The only hexing going on was the spell Reeder weaved over the Monte Vista bats. Working the ball up and down in the strike zone, she didn't serve the ball to the hitters on anything resembling a flat plane. As a result, Monte Vista hitters either popped the ball up or beat it harmlessly into the ground.

    "I can't remember even one hard-hit ball," Notre Dame coach Joe Given said.

    "That's not my usual pattern," said Reeder, "but my riser was working very well today."

    Although Monte Vista was unable to make a solid connection, some of its meekly struck efforts were troublesome. The Mustangs' first hitter of the game, Martha Ramirez, punched a soft liner toward second base. But Notre Dame shortstop Amy Tompkins read the play and made a tricky catch look routine.

    In the third, MVC's Rachell Hawkins lobbed a shot that landed just beyond the skin of the infield in right field. But right fielder Liz Cava was playing shallow and threw Hawkins out before she could reach first -- your standard 9-3 groundout.

    "That happens fairly frequently," Given said. "Some of our outfielders are converted infielders, so they know how to get rid of the ball quickly. We must have gotten five or six outs that way this year."

    So while Reeder and the Notre Dame defense were shutting the door on Monte Vista, the Spirits used two big innings to seal the deal.

    In the first, Notre Dame scored three times on RBI singles by Reeder and Teri Ann Caoagan. In the fourth, the Spirits parlayed five hits and a three-base error into a five-run inning. The big blows were a triple by Alyssa Given and a single by Serena Benavente that was misplayed into a four-base romp for the Notre Dame second sacker.

    Lindsay Schutzler, Reeder and Caoagan each had two hits to pace Notre Dame's attack.

    Reeder struck out seven and didn't come close to walking anyone. She was economical with her pitches, throwing only 64 serves in the seven-inning game, 49 for strikes.

    Monte Vista had its moments. Pitcher Jessie Brumbaugh, the only senior on a squad that starts five sophomores and four freshmen, yielded only two earned runs, struck out three and walked none in her complete game.

    Mustangs frosh shortstop Bri Cureton of Prunedale had a good game on defense, and centerfielder Kaylee Kusaba made the catch of the day, robbing Reeder of at least a double in the fifth inning.

    Was he recruited as an outfielder or pitcher?

    He was recruited as a outfielder but they were going to give him a look at pitching. He is a lefthander.
  8. Zach Hurley goes to my high school and is one of my best friends on the football team. Probably the nicest kid you will ever meet... I'm gonna miss him next season.

    Kim Reeder is having a good year. Of the Lady Bucks 21 wins, Kim has 11 (as a true freshman). She is currently 11-6 with back-to-back 3 hit shutouts. Way to go, Kim!

    The ladies played a brutal non-conference schedule. Now in the beginning of a homestand that encompasses 18 of 19 games and ending the season with 20 of 27 games at home, they should make a big push.

    I agree Scooter. They also played mostly .500 against that sched, and that's good IMHO.
