PC softball hosts Victor Valley in season-opening doubleheader Friday

The softball season is just around the corner for Porterville College.

On Friday the Lady Pirates host Victor Valley in a season-opening doubleheader at 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. PC also hosts West Valley in another doubleheader Saturday.

With four games in just two days, the Pirates will quickly learn about themselves. One thing they already know is they're young with just four players back from last year's team.

“What we're going to be lacking in is experience,” PC head coach Vickie Dugan said. “The pitchers are freshmen, where last year we had two seasoned sophomores as pitchers. So they're going to have a feet to the fire season.”
