Lady Rattlers Start Their Winning Season!
Opening weekend for the Otero Softball team at UCCS started with the right foot forward. First win was against Lamar 10 to 1, and the second game of the day was also the second win for the fall. Lady Rattlers beat Trinidad 8 to 5, which was done in a come-from-behind fashion. Highlights: Sophomore Captain Ashley Carrillo drove the ball deep into centerfield for a homerun, and Sophomore Nicole Montoya also went yard that Saturday afternoon.
First-year head softball coach Noel Wees commented, "I was quite pleased to see the team perform so well; they executed at the plate and defensively."
Unfortunately, games for Sunday afternoon were canceled due to rain out.
Please come out and support our Rattler Softball program as they are on the road in Fort Collins the 20th and the 21st of this month. [ SCHEDULE ]

Lady Rattler Softball wins Region IX Tournament
Despite all the end of the year festivities, the Lady Rattlers had their focus on one specific goal: defending their Region IX title.
On graduation morning, Saturday, May 3, our sophomores literally walked across the stage received their diplomas and jumped on the bus to head back to Lamar to face Western Nebraska for the best 2 out of 3 series championship games. Otero beat Western 4-2 the first game and won 1-0 to be the Region IX Champions.
“We are extremely proud of our girls for being able to take care of business not only on the field, but more importantly finishing their finals week and graduating, all while winning four games and becoming Region IX Champions for the second year in a row,” said OJC Softball Head Coach Ben Garcia.
