The Mountain View High softball team showcased its power in the second inning of Thursday’s game, belting back-to-back home runs on the way to a 10-5 win over Wilcox.

Rani Lauwers homered first, then Ilona Sullivan put the host Spartans up 2-0.

The Los Altos High softball team’s inexperience showed in Thursday’s 12-4 home loss to Wilcox. The Eagles, with only four seniors on the roster, made too many mistakes to compete with the Chargers.

“This year is going to be a little challenging for us,” said coach Tom Barrera, whose team slumped to 0-3 in the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League De Anza Division and 3-9 overall. “We have a lot of inexperienced players, and that’s what we’re dealing with – teaching them how to play.”
