The Cubs’ bats were hot in their league opener, as seven batters collected multi-hit performances and Mayfield finished with 18 total hits.
Mayfield senior outfielder Maria Dilbeck went 4-for-4 with three RBIs, two runs scored and five stolen bases.

“Overall, our whole team had a really good day,” Clancy said. “We had some freshmen step up and get some good hits in their first league game and it’s good to see that for the program.”
Meanwhile, for the Tigers, freshman infielder Reed Dietrick finished 1-for-2.
“Dietrick is a player that has really textbook skills and when she connects, she connects. She’s a freshman and I am super happy to have her,” Westridge head coach Karen Hanselman said.
The Cubs (4-2 overall record, 1-0 in league) are scheduled to continue league play at Flintridge Prep on Friday, March 11, at 3:30 p.m. Westridge (0-2 overall, 0-1 in league) is scheduled to visit Arcadia Rio Hondo Prep for a league game on Friday, March 11, at 3:30 p.m.
