Deservedly so, you've heard a lot about two of her teammates, one past teammate - 2007 state player of the year Jordan Taylor, one current - 2008 state player of the year candidate Jessica Spigner. But Bernardino is symbolic of what Valencia softball has been in 2008. Like her team, the senior outfielder has flown under the radar - probably unjustly. Valencia, the defending national champions and ...

Patience, effective leadership skills and dedication; just a few traits of a successful baseball catcher.
Jessica Spigner did it all. Literally. Valencia's senior pitcher hit two home runs, drove in three runs, and made the game saving play as the Vikings advanced to the CIF-Southern Section Division I Finals with a 3-2 win over Santiago Corona. "As she goes, we go," said Valencia coach Donna Lee. "She's our catalyst and she got us going from beginning to end." Spigner gave the Vikings an early cushion with a two run homer ...
